Brahmastra makes Rs 360 crore in 10 days: Report
The film has surpassed the global box office collections of The Kashmir Files
Director Ayan Mukerji penned a note on Instagram announcing that he is getting down to work on the Brahmastra sequel. The Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt-starrer made Rs 360 crore on the global box office in 10 days, exceeding the collection of Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files. Although the film based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits was made on a budget of Rs 15 crore (approx.), Brahmastra Part One: Shiva cost Rs 410 crore (approx.)
In a post, Ayan wrote, “BRAHMĀSTRA Part One is 11 days old today, and on this Monday (day of Shiva) putting out some good pure energy for…What the Film has achieved so far! The Journey it will continue over the next few weeks as the festive season comes upon us! All the Audience Feedback we have received (good, and not so good) - all of which we are absorbing and learning deeply from!! All the AMAZING Fan Theories out there (some of which we’re definitely going to use in our Future!) PART TWO: DEV & The ASTRAVERSE!”
“I didn’t think I would be ready to get back to work as soon as this first baby was delivered, but the Energy from our Audiences has given me the Energy to jump straight back into it…! For all this… Thank you #brahmastra #astraverse,” he added.
Brahmastra, as per reports, made Rs 17 crore on Day 10 (Sunday). It made a total of Rs 360 crore, surpassing the lifetime collection of The Kashmir Files which was Rs 350 crore.
Reacting to Brahmastra’s new milestone, Vivek tweeted, “Hahahaha. I don’t know how did they beat #TheKashmirFiles…with sticks, rods, hockey… or AK47 or stones…. Or with paid PR and influencers? Let Bollywood films compete with each other. Leave us alone. I am not in that dumb race. Thanks. #NotBollywood.”
Ranbir Kapoor, in a recent interview, said that Brahmastra’s economics is much different from other films and the budget figures for the film floating around are “all wrong”. Ranbir added that the budget for the first film will be used in the rest two films as well. “So, the assets we have created for the film, like the fire VFX or effects for other superpowers, they will be used in three films. So, it’s not like the figures floating around, whether it’s hundred rupees or two hundred rupees, are correct. It’s all wrong. The economics of this film is not like the economics of other films that have been made in our industry. Now, we can easily go into part 2 and part 3. With part 1, Ayan had to learn how to make this kind of a film,” he told Dainik Bhaskar.
Besides Ranbir and Alia Bhatt, the film also featured Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy
