Many film shootings have been hampered in the last two years due to Coronavirus. The film Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji, has been frequently postponed due to the Covid-19 waves.

It has now been revealed that the Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer is still being filmed. According to a story in an entertainment daily a few days ago, Brahmastra’s shoot was planned to take place in Varanasi in December, according to a line producer named Rati Shankar Tripathi. However, due to an increase in cases, it was postponed until January and was scheduled to take place in Mumbai. However, when cases in the Maximum City spiralled out of control, the shoot was pushed back indefinitely.

Rati Shankar Tripathi stated to this reporter that Covid-19 and the election season have hampered the shooting of Brahmastra and many other films in Uttar Pradesh. He did clarify, though, that the majority of the film’s shooting is finished and that only a patchwork shot remains, which should be completed in a matter of days. He also disclosed that the Brahmastra filmmakers are once again considering shooting in Varanasi, which will take place in February.

Brahmastra starred rolling four years ago, in February of 2018. To put it another way, the film will now enter its fifth year of production.

The filming of Brahmastra has been continuously postponed owing to a variety of factors. The shoot was cancelled in March-April 2021 after Ranbir Kapoor tested positive. Alia Bhatt was also infected a few days later. The filmmakers also wanted to shoot an elaborate song with a large number of junior artists, but they couldn’t do so for a long time because film shootings are not allowed to be crowded as part of Covid-prevention measures.

Aside from Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Brahmastra also features Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna, as well as a cameo appearance by Shah Rukh Khan. In December, the film’s creators unveiled an amazing motion poster in front of a sold-out stadium in Delhi. The film’s release date has also been revealed: September 9, 2022. With so many films being delayed as a result of the third wave, it’s unclear whether Brahmastra will be released on the scheduled date or if it will be postponed.
