Records made by Brahmastra
The Ayan Mukerji directorial has also made headlines by creating multiple records at the box office. Brahmastra emerged as the biggest Bollywood opener of 2022 beating Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, and the biggest post-pandemic opener of the industry. The fantasy drama also emerged as both Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s biggest first-day opener and biggest first-weekend opener. The mega-budget project, which is bankrolled by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Star Studios, also went on to top the worldwide chart on its opening weekend, by registering the biggest box office collection worldwide.
Brahmastra also made the biggest opening weekend collection for a Bollywood film dubbed in South Indian languages. Reportedly, the movie has emerged as the biggest Bollywood opener in the US. Interestingly, Brahmastra registered a whopping 6 Lakhs advance bookings, thus beating the records set by KGF Chapter 2. This rare feat was achieved by the Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer, on the special occasion of National Cinema Day. The fantasy drama also became the first Indian film to top at the Australian box office. The Telugu dub version of Brahmastra registered multiple records, including the biggest opening day and the biggest single day.
The Brahmastra trilogy
For the uninitiated, director Ayan Mukerji and his team have planned Brahmastra as a three-part film series. The movie, which successfully established a fantasy world rooted in Indian mythology and culture named ‘Astraverse’ will soon get a second and third installment. The massive success of Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva, has totally raised the expectations for the next installments of the trilogy. The second part, which has been titled Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev, is expected to start rolling in 2023. The much-awaited project is slated to hit the theatres in December 2025.
Ranbir Kapoor played the central character Shiva in Part One, which featured Alia Bhatt in the role of his lady love, Isha. The movie featured Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni, and Mouni Roy in the other pivotal roles. The second part, which reportedly revolves around Shiva’s parents Dev and Amrita’s story, will have another two biggest stars of Hindi cinema joining its star cast. The Brahmastra universe is also expected to expand further, with a spin-off on Scientist Mohan Bhargav, the character played by Shah Rukh Khan.
