While speaking to Komal, Ayan said, “Yeh film humari bahut hi personal sacrifices se bani hai. Toh yes, yeh sach hai ki Ranbir didn’t take anything while the making of Brahmastra. Aur main maanta hu ki iske begair hum yeh film ko bana hi nahi paate. I think it’s a very big thing, kyuki it could not have been possible.”
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.” Brahmastra has entered into its 3rd week, and the film is competing with Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan starrer Chup.
