Earlier slamming Brahmastra’s numbers, Vivek had Tweeted, “Problem is everything runs on fakeness in Bollywood. And nobody is answerable. No industry can survive which invests 0% in R&D and wastes 70-80% of money on stars. Brahmastra wipes out over ₹800 crore wealth of PVR and Inox investors | Business Insider.”
Vivek Agnihotri in his interview with Kushal Mehra had said, “Brahmastra, do they even know the meaning of that? And then they are talking about Astra Verse, what is even that? Then you put your director, who can’t even pronounce Brahmastra. He is a wonderful director. I loved his Wake Up Sid and the second film and I wish he made a wonderful film. I am concerned about him like a mother is concerned about their children. I am very disappointed. So these are the problems.”
