Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra Part One: Shiva continues to create headlines even after its grand theatrical release. There is a lot of hype and talk about the first installment of Ayan Mukerji’s Astraverse trilogy which introduced us to the world of Brahmastra through the lens of Shiva (Ranbir). The film ended with the announcement of its sequel titled Brahmastra Part Two: Dev. While fans have made several guesses and theories about who would play Dev on the silver screen, Ayan has spilled the beans about the release of his sequel. Read on to find out.
Talking to The Indian Express, Ayan Mukerji revealed that he is targeting a December 2025 release for Brahmastra Part Two. Although he has not announced the date yet, he said, “We have our target. We would like to make this film and have it come out three years from now. It is a tough timeline for us considering how much time part one took. But now we have also learnt how to make these kinds of films.”
Ayan further said that the script for the sequel has been ‘on’ since Part One itself. He said that it has already gone through many revisions and retouches, given that they had the time to work on it during the pandemic.
However, he said that there is no fixed time as to when the sequel will go on floors. “Going on floors isn’t as important as when we plan to get the film out. On floors implies shooting but actually on a film like this, the pre-production, work on VFX, the post is as important as when you shoot it.” He further added that the movie will go on floors when the core team is ready and well-rested from part one.
Brahmastra has an excellent weekend figure of Rs. 119 cr nett all languages, the film held well on its first Monday with Hindi collections o6’5f Rs. 14.25 cr and dubbed language collections of Rs. 2 cr, for a total of Rs. 16.25 cr nett. Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is very much on course to breach the Rs. 250 cr nett India mark, ensuring that it becomes the highest-grossing Hindi original of the year in India. Given the strong overseas numbers, which will cross 10 million dollars by Tuesday, the film is also likely to top a worldwide gross of Rs. 450 cr.
