Director Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which has Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead, has been trending for a number of reasons. The movie, which released in theatres on September 9, had a decent box office opening but some of its dialogues have drawn harsh criticism from the audience.

A section of the audience as well as critics had complained on social media about how silly some of its dialogues were. Ayan addressed the criticism in a recent interview.

When asked about the movie being criticised for its poor script, Ayan told Indian Express, “I heard that. Can you tell which parts exactly? Is it overall, throughout the film?” He continued, “I thought this would give the film a soul. That the greatest energy comes from within you and the greatest form of energy is when you are in a state of love. It may have sounded better on paper than it came across to certain people. But, when Kesariya came out, for the first 48 hours all we heard was, ‘Oh God why did they do this with love storiyan.’ But the song continued to be a blockbuster, and nobody talks about it today. So, point noted. But India has a diverse audience.”

Ranbir, Alia, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna are part of Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva. Astraverse, a completely fresh cinematic world, is introduced in Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva, the first movie of the franchise. Both Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan appear in the movie in cameo roles.

On the other hand, Ayan made his directorial debut with Wake Up Sid, a film starring Ranbir and Konkana Sensharma. After his next movie, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, starring Ranbir and Deepika Padukone, became a tremendous box office hit, Ayan gained notoriety. He got the concept for Brahmastra while shooting Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
