Ayan Mukerji’s passion project “Brahmastra” has proven to be a hit at the box office as it has collected around Rs 360 crore so far. However, the film was made on a budget of over 400 crores, so it still has a ways to go before it breaks even. Precisely for this reason, several people question the success status of ‘Brahmastra’ as the movie didn’t really make a profit despite its incredible box office.
During a recent media interaction, Ranbir Kapoor addressed this issue and shared that the commercial aspect of “Brahmastra” is different from other films and that most of its budget is supposed to be split between three films of the trilogy. instead of this one only.
The actor told Dainik Bhaskar, “These days we read a lot where people are discussing the budget of the film. People say it’s the budget and it’s the recovery. But Brahmastra is unique because the budget is not just for one movie but for the whole trilogy.”
Ranbir added, “So the assets we created for the movie, like fire VFX or effects for other superpowers, they will be used in three movies. So it’s not as if the figures that were circulating, whether it was one hundred rupees or two hundred rupees, were correct. It’s all wrong. The economics of this film is not like the economics of other films that have been made in our industry. Now we can easily move on to Part 2 and Part 3. With Part 1, Ayan had to learn how to make this kind of movie.
