By BollywoodMDB Team - October 28, 2017
Brahmastra is a much-awaited upcoming 2019 Indian fantasy adventure film written and directed by Ayan Mukerji. The movie is in talks ever since its announcement with Bollywood’s top names, Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor playing the leads. Now Namit Malhotra, the co-producer of the project told a leading daily that the film will be released in 3D. As per the source, the budget of the film is Rs.150 crores to which Namit said, “We aspire to create something home-grown that can match Hollywood standards. We can't be penny-pinching with the scale. Hollywood has moved from dramas and rom-coms to big scale films, which makes more money eventually. India too is getting there."
Namit adds, "We will shoot it the regular way and then convert it into 3D. The visual effects and conversion quality will be superlative," he said. “The films will progress from establishing the characters to the protagonist achieving his goal. Ayan's vision will strike a chord with everyone, from the ages of six to 60. In terms of concept, it doesn't share any similarities with other Bollywood superhero films, like Krrish . The title itself conveys that the story is rooted in our cultural heritage,” he further adds.
On 11th October, producer-director, Karan Johar announced the project through social media and tweeted, "A TRILOGY ...A FANTASY ADVENTURE....A LABOUR OF LOVE.....”BRAHM?STRA”
Brahmastra will mark Ayan's return to direction after Wake Up Sid (2009) and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013). Actor Ranbir and Alia will share the screen for the first time, while television sensation Mouni Roy will also be seen in a pivotal role.
