Brahmastra, one of Ayan Mukerji’s most expensive films, is among the most expensive works of Indian cinema. The movie, which had a whopping 400 crore budget, featured Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna in significant parts. But Shah Rukh Khan’s presence generated a lot of excitement among the audience, and now everyone is demanding a spin-off!
Shah Rukh who played Vanarastra and took on the persona of Mohan Bhargav, a scientist, only had a short stint during the movie. But his role won the audience’s hearts and left them asking for more. Supporters of SRK started posting online petitions calling for a spin-off of his character.
Ayan Mukerji, the director of Brahmastra, has finally addressed the topic and revealed “Before the fans were saying it, we were also saying that ourselves. When we were shooting the sequence in 2019, we were also talking on sets. As we discovered the personality of the scientist, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do stuff. We have to do the origin story of the scientist!”
Shah Rukh Khan’s role in Brahmastra, according to Ayan Mukerji, was not intended to be limited to a cameo, and his team too was pushing for more. “We were also vibing on that frequency, my assistants and I. So, I guess my response to the spin-off demand is that: We are already thinking about it. We are hearing everything and are planning our next moves,” he added.
Even Deepika Padukone is reportedly a part of the Brahmastra franchise, in addition to Shah Rukh Khan. Who will play the main character Dev in the future franchise is still a big mystery. One of the names that is getting a lot of attention is Ranveer Singh, and we can’t wait to see who it turns out to be.
