Brahmastra is one of the most ambitious projects of Bollywood which has already been creating crazy hype amongst the audience. Several speculations and fan theories have been doing the rounds about the film, ever since the teaser was dropped just a few weeks back and looks like not all of them are true. In a recent conversation with the media, director Ayan Mukerji shed some light on alleged Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone cameos in the film and this might be a little disappointing for the fans.
For the unversed, Brahmastra is a fantasy-drama film that is all set to hit the theatres on September 9, 2022. The movie has been directed by Ayan Mukerji and apart from Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, also stars actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjunna Akkineni, and Mouni Roy in key roles. Not much has been revealed about the plot so far but one thing is clear it will have a beautiful love story between the leading pair Isha and Shiva.
In a recent conversation with Mirchi Plus, Ayan Mukerji was asked if Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone will appear in the second part of the Brahmastra trilogy. As a response, the filmmaker said, “I know nothing about this, Part 2 maybe. It is good suggestion for Part 2 maybe you’ll get to see them then.”
Shedding some light on the plot of the film Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji also clarified that the three-part film is not exactly about Lord Shiva. The lead character, played by Ranbir Kapoor, has the name Shiva and since the director himself is a huge devotee of the said God, he has personally put his own inspirations in the movie and the character Shiva.
“One thing I want to tell you is that Brahmastra is not really about Lord Shiva. Ranbir Kapoor’s character is just called Shiva in it. My greatest hero is Shiv Bhagwan. There is a lot of inspiration that I’ve put in my own way into this film and into this character. So there is no role of Parvati in Part One or Part Two or Part Three. To some extent, like it says in the dialogue of the movie, Isha is really Shiva’s Parvati (character Shiva’s Parvati) in this trilogy”, Ayan Mukerji said.
