Brahmastra: Ayan Mukerji Reveals Why He Did Not Do A Bear Sequence Like RRR!

Brahmastra roared at the box office with huge appreciation from fans and audiences. Despite its low profile in Bollywood, the fantasy adventure bringing together real-life couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt for the first time is doing well at the box office.

While expectations are high not only for the first part but also for the upcoming two parts of the trilogy, Ayan Mukherjee insists that the later parts will lean academically towards Indian mythology rather than human emotions. Recalling the experience of shooting Part One, the filmmaker revealed that due to budget constraints he had to create shots that included a scene that was eventually included in the SS Rajamouli film RRR.

Recalling one such incident, Ayan Mukherjee revealed during FICCI 2022 that he planned a bear sequence similar to the one seen in RRR starring Jr. NTR. However, he could not achieve what SS Rajamouli was able to do due to budget constraints.

Ayan said, “I think there is no life or relationship without compromise. Even in Brahmastra, there were many times when I had thought of something but couldn’t do it that way or there were times when we hoped we could do it but were not able to. Let me tell you something interesting. In RRR, there is this interval sequence where all the animals jump out, which is an incredible sequence. That sequence is done by Namit’s company as well.”

He further added, “A few years ago, I had thought of such an incredible sequence with a bear in Brahmastra. But due to budget constraints, we had to cut the bear out of part one but it was a great sequence. Now in RRR, they managed to put the sequence with a lot of other animals. Even now, when I meet Namit I ask him about how he made me compromise on the bear sequence. So you do compromise but still, try to do your best.”
