Ayan Mukerji‘s Brahmastra has become the most talked-about film of BTown. Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna, Amitabh Bachchan, and Mouni Roy it is a fantasy action film.
The shoot of the film is almost done, Ranbir, Alia and Big B are in Manali for the climax shooting. Post Manali the team will be heading Varanasi for a song shoot before wrapping it.
Earlier, Karan Johar informed us that the film will release in summer 2020 and not in Christmas 2019. However, according to the latest update, the film wouldn’t be able to meet the Summer 2020 deadline too.
“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,” a daily quoted a source as saying.
Now the makers are figuring on a new release date, which will probably be in the last quarter of 2020.
“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 are unveiled,” the source added.
The makers of Brahmastra will also make an official announcement with a poster or teaser next with a bound along with a release date as soon as they get a thumb’s up from the VFX company.
As per the source, “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.”
