Shah Rukh As Mohan Bhargava Was A Surprise To Swades Fans, Reveals Brahmastra Director Ayan Mukerji, Says ‘No Way To Repay What SRK Has Done On Film’

While recalling Ra.One movie, Ayan comprehended the diligence and attempts of creating a tentpole spectacle movie but also supported his vision.

Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra released on September 9 starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan. Moviegoers have applauded the film and performances, especially on VFX, Shah Rukh’s cameo appearance in a large dark room.

Khan plays Mohan Bhargava, a scientist and Brahmanch secret community’s member with extraordinary power, who is guarding one of the pieces of the ancient Astra. He features the Vanarastra in the film.

Netizens resurfaced Shah Rukh’s old video where he discusses the then-upcoming movie Ra.One and the significance of innovation and VFX in the Indian film industry. While recalling Ra.One movie, Ayan comprehended the diligence and attempts of creating a tentpole spectacle movie but also supported his vision.

“We wrote that in our credits, ‘Eternally grateful to Mr Shah Rukh Khan’. Sometimes, people come and do something so generous and large hearted,” PTI quoted Ayan as saying. “There is no way to ever repay what Shah Rukh Khan has done on Brahmastra. Unanimously, one of the favourite things in Brahmastra has been Shah Rukh sir’s sequence,” added Ayan.

He deliberately named Khan as Mohan Bhargav for SRK’s fans. “In Swades, he plays a NASA scientist called Mohan Bhargava, who decides to come back and work in India. Since I had worked on Swades as an assistant, I thought it would be a nice thing to throw in here,” he further said.

“I believe that as he has made a lot of visual effects films, he knows the struggle in making that kind of a film. He appreciated the journey I was on and knew how difficult it would be. He felt that if he can give a little support to the vision, he should do it,” he said.

The 39-year-old director concluded, “He just came and did a great sequence. I don’t know if anybody else would do it. People don’t do it. I hope, one day, if I reach that position I am able to do something selflessly to help somebody else.”
