In a recent press conference in Chennai, ace director SS Rajamouli who rose to fame because of RRR and Baahubali spoke about his admiration for the upcoming movie Brahmastra. The director said that what he liked the most about Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming film is that it is a commercial way of telling the story of ‘astras’.
Talking about Ayan Mukerji’s work in Brahmastra, SS Rajamouli said, “Ayan dreamt about creating a world that we have never seen before — the magnificent world of astras that we have learned from our history, our puranas.” He also added, “As children, we heard about these astras but have never seen their splendor.”
“That is what Ayan has dreamt. It has been a long journey from 2014. He has been ably supported by Karan Johar, Ranbir, Alia, Nagarjuna and Amit sir. Thank you all for making me a part of this fantastic journey,” the ace director added.
When asked what he likes about Brahmastra the most, Rajamouli said, “Creating a world that Ayan has created is not easy. Ayan has created a power which still has some limits. He provided the scope to create a bigger villain and also created a scope for the struggle for good to win over evil. It is not like a fairy tale. It is like a commercial way of telling the story of astras. This is what I like about ‘Brahmastra’.”
He also said, “Ayan made sure that among all the astras, including ‘Vanara Astra’, ‘Agni Astra’, ‘Jalastra’ and ‘Brahmastra’ — love is the strongest. Not just telling this fact in dialogues, he made sure that his point comes across. That love will win over everything.”
BrahmÄstra Part One: Shiva is all set for release on September 9. The movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
