Produced by Karan Johar, the upcoming film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
It seems that Karan Johar’s Brahmastra has left no stone unturned in terms of picking the best talent. The Ayan Mukerji directorial will feature Prasad Sashte as music producer and he will work with Pritam to compose the film’s score.
In a conversation with IANS, the music producer, who has been a part of films such as Chhichhore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Rustom, 'Kalank', talked about how hard they had worked over the course of several months on the epic superhero movie’s ‘unusual’ score. He also added that Brahmastra was going to be a treat for one’s eyes as well as one’s ears. The upcoming movie will mark Sashte’s second collaboration with director Ayan Mukerji, after Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani, which was also produced by Karan Johar.
A ‘contemporary film with ancient elements’, according to the director, Brahmastra has on board some well-known names in its cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy, Dimple Kapadia and Nagarjuna Akkineni. The film will feature some important characters from Hindu mythology in its story.
The film is said to be the first instalment in a planned trilogy and has been shot in several locations including Bulgaria, Scotland, London and New York. The film had made news recently when there were allegations of the producers demanding huge claims from their insurance companies, which were later strongly denied by Karan Johar.
With its shoot beginning way back in 2018, the film’s release had witnessed several delays due to some unavoidable circumstances and the COVID-19 pandemic. The film is said to be releasing in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam languages. Brahmastra will reportedly be released in 3D, and IMAX, as well as the standard format.
