Brahmastra roared at the box office, with the film garnering plenty of acclaim from fans and viewers alike. Despite Bollywood’s downturn, the fantasy adventure that brings real-life couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt together for the first time is doing well at the box office. While expectations are high not only for the first part but also for the next two parts of the trilogy, Ayan Mukerji has assured that the next parts will be more devoted to Indian mythology than human emotions. Recalling his experiences filming Part One, the filmmaker revealed that budget constraints meant he had to forego filming, including a scene that ended up being made into the SS Rajamouli film RRR.
Ayan Mukerji reveals he wanted to do a bear sequence like the lavish animal sequence in RRR; confessed that he could not do it for budget reasons
Ayan Mukerji recalled one such incident and revealed during FICCI 2022 that he had planned a bear sequence quite similar to that shown in RRR with Junior NTR. However, due to budget constraints, he could not achieve what SS Rajamouli was able to achieve. Speaking of compromises he had to make along the way Brahmastra, Ayan said during a media interaction, “I think there is no life or relationship without compromise. Even in Brahmastra, there were many times when I had thought of something but couldn’t make it, or there were times when we hoped we could make it but couldn’t. Let me tell you something interesting. in the RRR, there’s this interval sequence where all the animals jump out, which is an incredible sequence. This sequence is also made by Namit’s company. A few years ago I was thinking of such an incredible sequence with a bear in Brahmastra. But for budget reasons we had to cut the bear out of part one, but it was a great sequence. Now in RRR they managed to combine the sequence with many other animals. Even now when I meet Namit I ask him how he made me compromise on the bear sequence. So you make compromises but still try to do your best.”

It was released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on September 9th. On the other hand, RRRdirected by SS Rajamouli starring Ram Charan, Junior NTR, along with Alia Bhatt, released March 24th.
