Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra opened to mixed reviews from the critics and audience. Soon, Kangana Ranaut pointed the finger at the film's director Ayan Mukerji. She also criticised the lead actors Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt as well as the movie's producer Karan Johar.
Kangana posted an image of a poor review of the film on her Instagram account, along with the caption, “This is what happens when you try to sell a lie, @karanjohar in every show forces people to call @aliabhatt and Ranbir best actors and @ayan_mukerji a genius…slowly he started to believe this lie…what else explains the 600 crore budget of this film to a director who never made a good enough film in his life…Fox studio in India had to sell itself to fund this film…How many more studios will be closed because of this clowns?”
After that, Kangana continued to discuss Alia and Ranbir's nuptials and the subsequent baby news months before the premiere of Brahmastra on her Instagram. She further attributed KRK's imprisonment to "groupism" in the film industry. She captioned her story, “Their groupism is coming to bite them now…Wedding to baby PR, controlled the media, jailed KRK, bought reviews, bought tickets…they can do everything dishonest but can’t make a good honest film…”
The next post from Kangana stated that all those labelled Ayan a genius for Brahmastra must be instantly imprisoned. She posted, “Everyone who called @ayan_mukerji a genius should be jailed immediately." She further claimed "Burnt down 600 crore to ashes… Also tried to exploit religious sentiments”.
She made a remark on Karan Johar in her subsequent tweet, informing her fans that "People like Karan Johar should be questioned for his behaviour. He is more interested in everyone's sex life than his film plot (sic)."
She continued by stating that he is purchasing all of the reviews, stars, false collection numbers, and tickets on the same page. Kangana continued by saying that the filmmaker tried to focus on Hinduism and the South wave this time. She added, “all turned to pujaris suddenly and begged south actors, writers and directors to promote their film…they will do everything but not hire competent writers, directors, actors and other talent.”
Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is the first film of a trilogy and the beginning of the Astraverse, a new cinematic universe. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in crucial roles..
