Amid Coronavirus lockdown, several Bollywood films are suffering as shoots have been delayed due to the shutdown. Among them, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Brahmastra may also be facing issues owing to the lockdown. Before the lockdown began, the shooting of Alia and Ranbir starrer was going on and often, Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir and Alia were spotted on the sets. However, since the lockdown, the shoot has been stalled. Now, a report hinted that owing to the delay, the budget of Karan Johar’s production, Brahmastra might be overshot and hence, Alia, Ranbir and Ayan may take pay cuts.

As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, due to the lockdown, the shoot of Brahmastra has been delayed and with 40 more days of shoot schedule remaining, for the same, the budgets of the film have been exceeded by a wide margin. The report further stated that Alia and Ranbir starrer has a lot of VFX work pending as portions shot with Shah Rukh Khan and those filmed in Manali need to be worked upon. Hence, a source told the portal that producer Karan Johar may go back to the board to figure out the economics of the film. The source further added that since Ranbir, Alia, Ayan are aware of the situation, they have decided to take pay cuts to make the film viable. In return, the source mentioned that the production house is contemplating giving them a profit share.

However, as soon the reports of Ranbir, Alia, and Ayan taking pay cuts went viral on social media, Karan Johar took to Twitter to express his thoughts. While the filmmaker’s tweet didn’t take any names of any of his films but it came at a time when reports of Ranbir, Alia, Ayan taking pay cuts for Brahmastra went viral. Karan urged the media to wait for official announcements only and not to spread false rumours amid sensitive times of Coronavirus. Karan wrote, “My hugest request to my media friends not to reach any assumptions on our fraternity films...these are challenging times for the business and false news only makes the situation worse! Please wait for official news on any account!! This is a humble  request....”

Check out Karan Johar’s tweet: 

Meanwhile, Karan’s other film, Takht shoot also had to begin in April 2020. However, due to the Coronavirus lockdown, it has been delayed. On the other hand, Brahmastra is one of the most highly mounted films that is being produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and the shooting has been going on since 2017. It stars Ranbir as Shiva and Alia as Isha in the lead. Other than them, it also has Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna Akkineni, and Mouni Roy. The film is helmed by Ayan Mukerji and after much debate, the release date was announced to be December 4, 2020.

It looks like alia does not have any fans left. Despite trying to be cute her true colours have come out in her conduct of life being nasty, mean, arrogant, scheming, brashmouth, snatching work, getting work only because of connections..... better get married & disappear into oblivion.

Alia Ranbir Deepika and Ranveer are the biggest jokers in Bollywood. Their lives revolves around news and controversies. And dont tell me that Deepika and Ranveer did not gain anything out of their relationship, they were milking it since Ram Leela. Also they are all are way too overrated, they arent natural actors, yes ALL four of them. Bajirao Mastani was a mess. Simmba?? I mean dont even get me started. And this Bramastra is going to flop, just like Jagga. Hell Ranbir and Alia might even break up when it’ll release, just like he and kat broke up. Also Karan is like a cancer to bollywood, a parasite. Remember when stars had class? (Also im not anyone’s fan, just a bollywood fan, following it since 2006) and trust me Bollywood will fall because of the gimmicks and dare i say some overrated actors.

Alia isn't even a good actress compared to Deepika and the others that came out in her time,family name puts her before the others..and that's always the same issue in Bollywood. So many others are gifted but they barely stand a chance cause they aren't from the big family name.

I knew Ae Dil hai mushkil and Sanju will be a hit because he wasn't working with his love interest so film didn't farm any negative publicity and his acting was talked about but brahmastra will be a flop like tamasha and jagga jasoos because once again his film is in news only because of his relationships.

Why Ranbir needs 4 years to understand a character. Jagga was shooter for 4 years and Brahmastra too is in making for 4 years. Why isn't he a natural actor like ranveer singh.

parineeti will make alia burn with jealousy. disha is slowly making mark for herself. in long run it is alia getting back her karma. sara is more into cuss word speaking, very few people would like to work with her ananya is in a hurry to get in to relationship as always she does not seem to be focussed. outsiders like kat, dp and kangana would have last laugh

Exactly he snatched the films of Deepika, Priyanka, Katrina and Anushka and gave it to Alia on the other hand he fixed other newcomer actress like Parineeti, Shraddha in bad films to kill Alia's competition and now he is promoting even Annanya and Sara. Alia and Kjo are the reason why beautiful and talented actress like Disha and kriti are not getting good work.

Alia can never be even foot of deepika. Deepika is self made and alia is kjo made. Look deepika has only 2 release in past 5 years while alia has 2 release every year but still deepika is queen and alia is not even in top 5.

What does anyway alia bhatt is getting for the film. She signed this film way back in 2013 after her nonsense debut role in student of the year. Thanks to kjo the number 1 young male actor back then agreed to work with her. Anyways she must be signed in 2-3 cr so what's the point of returning money. Yes ranbir charged 38 Cr for tamasha when he signed brahmastra after Yjhd. He should return the money as he is not that big star anymore.

Ranveer's small budget films like gully boy and simbaa are blockbusters where as ranbir's solo films like tamasha and jagga jasoos flopped despite relationship drama with superstar actress.

Anonymous 1 year ago

Exactly Ranveer will never do a propaganda film made to clean the image of a criminal, drugist and womaniser. And btw ranbir himself is womaniser and looks drugged so he was perfect for the film.

Ranbir won't be able to do even in 20 years what Ranveer did in 10 years of his career . Ranveer could have easily played sanjay dutt and even Vicky, Rajkumar, Ayushman, Sushant ,could have done it better than ranbir but problem is nobody will cast them as they are outsiders.

so was bajirao and padmavat and ramleela....but what RK did in sanju is not possible by anyone else.

Anonymous 1 year ago

Sanju was a multi starrer film directed by best director of India based on the life of one of the biggest superstar of Bollywood. Just like blockbuster Dhoni biopic can't be termed of as Sushant Singh stardom same way Sanju's success can't be signed as ranbir's stardom. His solo films like jagga jasoos and tamasha are disasters.

Flopastra ... they played so much pr games now the film cant release, losses and flop. Public is not stupid too. Alia’s karma for stabbing friend and being nasty. Rk is good actor but he played with kjo & alia’s game- he should learn to think in his own and be his original self.

One thing is for sure. The way this movie is being shot and dragged for over three years, by the time it is released, all interest will be lost and it will be a huge commercial disaster.

How long Brahmastra drama is going to continue? Have been reading since 2017., perhaps at Virushka’s wedding, they made appearance together.. Nobody cares for this nonsense anymore...
