In a recent report by ETimes, Ayan Mukerji spoke about the pre-production stage of Brahmastra and  he went on to confess that he was pretty upset when Ranbir Kapoor decided to take up other films after signing Brahmastra. Talking about it, Ayan reportedly said, “When I started the prep for Brahmastra, Ranbir was offered Sanju. He was supposed to start prep with me, but he chose to start Sanju first. I was so angry. I was happy that he was working with Raju Hirani but what about my project? But in hindsight, I’m glad Ranbir chose to work on Sanju because, a few years later, Sanju was shot, edited and ready for release and my pre-production hadn’t even completed. Had Ranbir waited for me, it would’ve been too long a wait."

Readers would be aware that the film was announced in 2014 and the release was postponed for several reasons including the recent pandemic. Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The Indian fantasy drama is based on mythology and the upcoming release is the first part of the trilogy. With Ranbir starring as Shiva, Alia as Isha, the film is produced under the Dharma Productions and it is slated to release on September 11.
