Ayan Mukerji is one of the most distinguished film-makers around the block. It is not a hidden fact that he has made his Instagram debut recently. Since then, the director has been blessing our timeline with beautiful posts and facts related to his much-awaited film Brahmastra. The film will be releasing in December this year. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles and will be the first installment of an adventure fantasy franchise. The makers of the film had also launched its logo on a large scale at the Kumbh Mela recently.

Our film-makers often derive inspiration from the diverse picturesque locales of the country and Ayan Mukerji is no different. Ayan revealed through a beautiful post how he sought inspiration from the beauty and the serenity of Varanasi for his film. He posted two pictures wherein in one he can be seen enjoying a lovely boat ride. In another picture, he can be seen looking out of the window. Ayan captioned the pictures as, “Varanasi my attempt with the Brahmāstra Trilogy to feature different places of India, and attempt to capture its infinite beauty #thesearchforbrahmastra.”

Ayan Mukerji also shared a recent post wherein he credited the Himalayas as his inspiration for Brahmastra. He shared a picture of himself with the mountains and gave an equally beautiful caption. He captioned the picture as, “I would never have written Brahmastra, if not for the Himalayas. It was where the idea for the movie - the entire trilogy - came to me, and no other place on earth could have inspired it. How do I describe what the Himalayas make me feel? I just can't, because words fall short. Their magnificence and spirituality is something I constantly keep going to because it makes my soul better."
