Ever since its release, Brahmastra, which stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, has been the talk of the town. The movie has grossed around Rs 200 crore from the Indian box office. According to Pinkvilla, the Hindi version of the film's 11-day total collection stands at Rs 208.20. The movie is expected to join the Rs 250 crore club in its final run. On September 23, the Indian film industry will mark National Cinema Day, as part of which many movies, including Brahmastra, will be available to watch for Rs 75. Although being in the third weekend, the film is one of the biggest attractions for movie buffs in the country.

The movie's director, Ayan Mukerji, discussed this in an interview with Pinkvilla. He said, “There are a lot of people who have not been to cinema halls to watch the film. They didn’t have the time or because of some other personal reasons. The festive season is going to begin now and this Friday, September 23, is National Cinema Day. Brahmastra is the biggest offering in many of the cinema halls and the film will be available to watch at affordable ticket prices.”

Ayan said that he has been monitoring audience responses on a daily basis and hopes that more people will visit movie theatres in the coming days. He added, “I am excited to see more and more people stepping out to watch Brahmastra in the coming days. I want everyone to come and see our film in the third weekend.”

According to sources from Pinkvilla, team Brahmastra had requested that National Cinema Day be delayed by a week from September 16 which was initially considered as the date to celebrate the occasion. The movie was in its second weekend, and hence, the makers made a request.

Ranbir and Alia have appeared together for the first time in the film. Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, the first trilogy film directed by Ayan Mukerji, released on September 9 to mixed reviews. Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus, and Starlight Pictures have bankrolled the project which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in important roles. Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and Dimple Kapadia have made brief appearances in the movie.
