Speaking to Komal, Ayan said, “Yeh film humari bahut hi personal offerings se bani hai. Toh yes, yeh sach hai ki Ranbir took nothing while making 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 wouldn’t have been possible.”
In another interview, Ayan opened up Brahmastra’s budget. Mukerji said, “Brahmastra is a big budget movie. When we started making Brahmastra, we didn’t just make part 1. It was an investment we made in the trilogy and in parts 2 and 3. So a lot of the cost that We invested in part 1 are also being invested in setting up the foundation, writing, building assets and concept work on part 2 and part 3.” Brahmastra has entered its 3rd week and the film is competing with Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan starrer Chup.
