Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor as Isha and Shiva delivered terrific performances in Brahmastra. Brahmastra is doing well at the box office. For the uninitiated, Brahmastra recently crossed Rs 350 crore mark in worldwide collections. Brahmastra was reportedly made on a huge budget. Now, during a recent interview, Ayan Mukerji spilled the beans on how much Alia and Ranbir charged for Brahmastra.
Earlier there were rumours that Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor did not charge anything for the film. Addressing the same, Ayan told Komal Nahta, “Yeh film hamari bahut hi Zid aur personal sacrifices se bani hai. So yes, yeh sach hai ki jo Ranbir ki price as a star, actor it is on a film, he did not take anything for the making of Brahmastra.”
Ayan added, “Aur main manta hoon ke iske baigaar hum yeh film ko bana nahi paate. It is a very very big thing kyuki it would not have been possible without this kind of support and I don’t know how many other people would have done this.”
Talking about Alia, Ayan said that her fees was not too high, to being with, given that they started working on Brahmastra 8 years ago when she was not the star that she is today. He went on to add that by the time Brahmastra was completed, whatever amount she earned went into the making of the film.
Apart from Alia and Ranbir, Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. Shah Rukh Khan has made a cameo in the film. As revealed by Ayan, Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev will be released in 2025.
