Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva has been released and is running successfully in theatres. The film was in the making for a really long time and since it has been released and has been receiving a favourable response from its audiences, the makers can take a much-needed breather. Mouni Roy, who played the role of Junoon in Ayan Mukerji's mythological fantasy epic and is heaping praises for her role in the film, graced Pinkvilla with an interview of hers.

Mouni Roy recalled her journey from television to films. On being asked if it was difficult to make a mark in Bollywood after being such a successful actress on television, she accepted that it was difficult but also said that good things take time and so did this opportunity to play a role in Brahmastra. Mouni continued by saying, "I have never shied away from hard work and I always feel there is no shortcut to hard work. Your work gets you more work." She accepted that she was overwhelmed with all the love that she got. She concluded by saying, "I have grown as an actor. I am not the same person. I have learnt a lot. It has been a rollercoaster journey. But I am still a small-town girl and I still have the same heart and the same set of friends and family. Life is full of surprises. Be present, be open and accept the good and the bad and the ugly, and make your life happy".

As we speak, Brahmastra has secured another steady day at the box office and is heading towards a lifetime figure in excess of Rs. 400 crore gross worldwide. Part 2 of Brahmastra is in the works and Ayan Mukerji has revealed that they are targetting a late 2025 release for the next part. He also previously revealed that the story of Part 2 will continue from where they left in Part 1 and there will be flashback scenes woven too, to suit the narrative.
