In another interview, Ayan opened up on the budget of Brahmastra. Mukerji said, “Brahmastra is a big-budget movie. When we started to create Brahmastra, we were not creating just part 1. It was an investment that we were making in the trilogy and in parts 2 and 3. So, a lot of the cost that we invested in part 1 is also invested in setting up the foundation, the writing, building assets, and the concept work on Part 2 and Part 3. And then there was the idea which was always in my mind but which really came to life while making Brahmastra was the idea of Astra, Vanastra.” Brahmastra was released in cinemas on September 9.
