The video started with Ranbir Kapoor on the sets in 2016 when they started working on Brahmastra. Then the final product of the film was shown, which offers an ‘amazing cinematic experience’. Ayan candidly revealed his thoughts on Brahmastra from the time he was working on his second film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, which also starred Ranbir.
Ayan said, “The journey of… Brahmastra started in 2011 on a writing trip in Shimla. My first feature film had come out at that time and I was working on the script of my second film (Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani). I have always felt a very powerful energy, a strong spirituality in our mountains. And I truly believe that it is from the energy of the Himalayas that the vision of Brahmastra was born.”
Brahmastra took five years to create and is the first part of a trilogy, which will be Bollywood’s own cinematic universe – the Astraverse. The video also gave a taste of the two parts, which have yet to be titled. Alia shared the video, writing, “How it all started…a glimpse of our preparation…and Brahmastra’s journey.”
Directing Ayan Mukerji marks the first collaboration between Alia and Ranbir who fell in love while working on the sets. Besides them, there are also Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. The film will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam on September 9.
