Ayan Mukerji is all set to treat us with fantasy action Brahmastra. The film starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy is in the last leg of its shoot. Ranbir, Alia and Amitabh are currently in Manali filming the climax scenes. After Himachal, the team will proceed to Varanasi for a song shoot before calling it a wrap.
When the film was announced, the makers were trying for a Christmas 2019 release. But earlier this year, Karan Johar revealed that the film won’t release during the Christmas 2019 weekend due to prolonged VFX process. They were then targeting a Summer 2020 release.
However, according to reports, we now hear that the film wouldn’t be able to meet the Summer 2020 deadline too. Revealed a source close to the development,
“A major chunk of VFX is still pending which includes the stuff shot with Shah Rukh Khan at a studio in Mumbai, and the plot that unfolds in Manali and Varanasi. The company working on the visual effects has conveyed to the producers that they won’t be able to get the film ready by Summer due to complexities in the visual effects, which has come across as a shock to everyone working on the film.”
Karan and Ayan were looking forward to releasing in June. However, because of the latest development, the makers are now figuring out a new release date. This date will likely be in the last quarter of 2020. Unveiled a source,
“They don’t want to release a half-baked product and hence giving the adequate time to visual effects. The vision is to bring in the biggest film from Bollywood, with no compromises on any aspects. Ayan and Karan are fine with a little more delay as they are sure, that the audience will be blown away by the visuals once the trailer and teaser is unveiled.”
An official announcement will be made with a poster or teaser once they get a confirmation from the VFX company.
“They don’t want to disappoint the fans by announcing the date for the sake of it and then delaying the film again. Hence the next announcement will come only after they are confident on delivering the film. Be assured once announced, it will be a prolonged marketing campaign with stuff dropping in at regular interval.”
Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra revolves around the most powerful weapon of God called Brahmastra, which is broken and hidden in different parts of India. We are eagerly awaiting its release.
