“Truth is that Brahmastra is made with personal sacrifices. Yes, it is true that Ranbir did not take the price he charges for a film as a star for the making of Brahmastra. I think without this, we wouldn’t have been able to make this film. It is a very very big thing because it wouldn’t have been possible to make this film without that kind of support and I don’t know how many other people can do this,” he told trade expert Komal Nahta in a recent interview.
Speaking of Alia’s sacrifice, Ayan said, “When she became a part of the film, eight years ago, that time Alia was just two to three films old. She wasn’t the star that she is today. Alia’s fees fixed for this film weren’t a big amount. But that small amount also, by the time we completed the filming, Alia said that her fee has gone into the making of the film so whatever budget we got, we put it into the film,” he said, adding that they spent money the most on the VFX and bringing quality content.
Brahamastra was released on September 9. Besides Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy.
