Ayan Mukerji has saved all of the viewers excited and anticipating with for years now with Brahmastra. The first a part of the movie, which was introduced nearly 7 years in the past, will lastly be hitting theatres (hopefully) on the ninth of September. Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt within the lead roles, and Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy is vital roles, the movie offers an concept that Ranbir’s character Shiva is likely to be a superhero. But the director, in a current interview asserted that it’s not a superhero movie.
Talking to IANS, Ayan mentioned, “I am not a superhero nerd. I love some of the superhero films like ‘Avengers’ and ‘Spiderman’… I am not the biggest superhero fan. I would like to say that I am more of a fantasy film fan. And I honestly think ‘Brahmastra’ is not a superhero film. It is not about a guy wearing a costume and necessarily saving people.”
He additional added, “It is just a fantasy epic story which has a lot of dramatic scope and in some way it is a fantasy version of me trying to write my modern version of something from myth. Like the scope that myth has but in a modern way.”
Ayan, furthermore, added, “I am probably more affected by things from Indian roots by our gods and goddesses, by stories of Indian history, perhaps more than superheroes. It’s a combination of influences that have affected me in this film.”
This is certainly one of Ayan Mukerji’s largest movies. To be launched as a trilogy, Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva, would hit theatres on ninth September, 2022.
