1. It is Karan Johar’s most expensive production to date…and why only until now? Even in the future he won’t invest in something so expensive. Karan describes Brahmastra as a dream project that had to be seen to its completion. The budget is said to have crossed Rs 400 crores.

2. This is the first film to bring newly-married couple Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor together. Ranbir has not had much luck at the boxoffice . Nagarjuna and Amitabh Bachchan, the two other two stars of the show have not seen much success either. Alia is the new boxoffice queen after Gangubai Kathiawadi and Darlings. Her luck is expected to rub off on the film.

3. Ranbir Kapoor and his newly-married wife Alia Bhatt have hopped on board as co-producers in Brahmastra.It was Brahmastra producer Karan Johar who suggested that Ranbir and Ali come on board as producers .Karan is close to both, especially Alia.

4. Brahmastra is director Ayan Mukerji’s visual manifestation of the astral images that have flashed in his mind since childhood. This is not a universe that is inspired by Marvel’s superhero genre.Nor does it owe any allegiance to any of the sc-fi FX films from the West.Brahmastra is Indian cinema’s first indigenous super-natural fantasy spectacle. It is Ayan’s own take on the link between the universe as we know it and its secrets that have been shared among only a handful of galactic knowledgeable so far.It is a universe that he has shared only with his producer Karan Johar so far. He now wants the world to see what’s in his mind.We can’t wait.

5. Get ready for very special appearances by Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone who play very special characters inspired by characters who have occupied Ayan’s mind from childhood. Brahmastra is unlike anything you’ve seen before.

6. The Hindi film industry has its hopes pinned on Brahmastra . One can no longer make any logical prediction on what works and what doesn’t. But yes, Brahmastra is at least an attempt to give audiences an entirely new theatre experience, something they haven’t seen, something that would stimulate their senses beyond the ordinary experience provided by movies on the OTT platform.

7. At 2 hours 46 minutes Brahmastra is an epic entertainer unlike anything we’ve seen before.Brace yourself for a unique experience.
