Brahmastra producer Karan Johar has said that superstars Nagarjuna and Shah Rukh Khan came on board for special appearances in the Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer because they believed in the film and its vision. Along with Karan Johar, filmmakers Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, Nikkhil Advani and Sameer Nair came together to talk about the industry, the pandemic, content creation, films, digital medium and obsession with remakes.
“Shah Rukh Khan and Nagarjuna made massive cameos in Brahmastra because they believed in the film” – Karan Johar
In Film Companion’s producer’s roundtable discussion with Anupama Chopra, Karan talked about the upcoming star-studded film Brahmastra and Shah Rukh Khan and Nagarjuna’s cameo appearances. “I've realized that it takes time when you make a film, you’ve got to give it time. You've learned the power of storyboarding; you've learned the power of also working with people who really care about your film. They didn't just sign your film because its money to them or it's a commitment. It's because they really believe in. If you're doing something that large, you've got to have a crew that actually becomes organically embedded in that film's fabric,” Karan Johar said.
“And that's what happened with Brahmastra. Like Nagarjuna, he came on board; Shah Rukh Khan has done a massive cameo for us. We thought it would be five days but he shot for 15 days. And without a question asked, he saw the vision of the sequence. It's like Mr. Bachchan; he came just about like that. This is not just our film; it's everyone's film, you can take ownership on it. Tomorrow, the producers list is large, the actor list is larger. It's like we're all just like part of this one big mega film that just needs the world to watch it. So, we like literally want every center in this country and world to come out and watch because we don't need it just for the money; we need it to kind of validate the seven years,” he added.
Brahmastra, written and directed by AyanMukerji, and produced by Karan Johar, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni. The film is intended to serve as the first film in a planned trilogy. Brahmastra is scheduled to be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada on 9thSeptember 2022.
