One Bollywood movie that has got everyone wondering when it'll finally hit screens even after lockdown and theatrical restrictions have been relaxes is Brahmastra. The first installment of Director Ayan Mukerji's ambitious fantasy trilogy, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna and above all, Shah Rukh Khan in an extended cameo, has been held up for more than three years now due to production and post-production delays, with coronavirus restrictions also playing spoil sport. Well, apparently, Ayan Mukerji and producer Karan Johar finally feel that their baby is now reaching its conclusion and are also contemplating what they feel is a conceivable release date. However, when it comes to Brahmastra, nothing has been cut-and-dried from the onset, and true to form, there are obstacles that may put paid to their plans.
A well-placed source within the industry has exclusively informed BollywoodLife that Ayan Mukerji and Karan Johar, whose Dharma Productions has bankrolled the mega-budget venture along with Fox Star Studios, is eyeing a release window between November and December this year for Brahmastra, and are eager to make an announcement soon. However, our source adds that they are still in two minds because of a.) The multiple big releases lined up in precisely those two months, and b.) The fact those movies have already got to build buzz, lock their dates and probably would even begin their promotions prior to that of Brahmastra.
In case you're wondering which are these movies that have got team Brahmastra worried, then here are their names and stars associated with them: Akshay Kumar's Prithviraj, Shahid Kapoor's Jersey (both arrive in November), Tiger Shroff's Heropanti 2, and Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor's Laal Singh Chaddha. Now you see why Brahmastra may have to rethink their release strategy. Keeping that in mind, our source concludes that the team is also mulling over shifting the release date to early 2022. Let's see how it all pans out.
