‘Brahmastra’ hits another hurdle over budget constraints?


Dharma Productions’ much delayed epic movie ‘Brahmastra’ has hit yet another hurdle, after reports emerged that it was facing budget constraints.

The Ayan Mukerji directorial, is expected to hit cinemas in December 2020, however, the film’s shoot has been put on pause due to the coronavirus lockdown. If this continues, the film could be delayed yet again, resulting further cost implications for the film.

A source was cited in Box Office World saying, “Currently there are about 40 more days of shoot left and given the lockdown situation, it does not look like the shoot will start any time soon. Given this delay so far the budget of Brahmastra has overshot by a wide margin. The movie is high on VFX and a major chunk of VFX is still pending which includes the stuff shot with Shah Rukh Khan at a studio in Mumbai, and the plot that unfolds in Manali and Varanasi.”

The source further stated, “As of now, Karan is looking to re-work the economics of the film. The members of the film’s cast as well as director, viz. Ayan Mukherji, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, aware of the ground realities, have voluntarily decided to take a pay cut to make the project viable. In lieu of the diminished pay, Dharma Productions is contemplating offering them a profit share in the film’s success. However details of the same have not yet been worked out.”

‘Brahmastra’ stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy.
