On Tuesday, Ranveer Singh used the platform of the FICCI Frames Fast Track 2022 opening in Mumbai to comment about his experience watching Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra, which features Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Mouni Roy, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Shah Rukh Khan, and many others.

Ranveer went on to say, “I thoroughly enjoyed the Brahmastra experience. A big round of applause for my friends who have created Brahmastra, the Astraverse, a fantastic big screen offering. It is nothing like we’ve seen in Hindi cinema and I really appreciate the efforts of my friends for putting it out there.”

Ranveer went on to say that as directors and performers, they have an added duty to ensure that the theatrical experience is unique for the audience. He said, “I think when it comes to the Indian entertainment sphere, my observation has been that we’ve rapidly accelerated to where the western spheres are now. The gulf between big screen entertainment and home entertainment has become very distinct."

As he also noted, there is now a definite line between movies made for the big screen and movies that are suited to be seen by a group of people at home and opined that movies intended for the big screen must have large screen attraction, gorgeous visuals, as well as a size that really is difficult to experience at home.

Ranveer added that the audience should be offered a deep emotional experience when they are in cinema halls. The experience, however, is different when they watch alone on their couch. The emergence of these new avenues has caused him to believe that the entertainment industry has swiftly advanced, creating a completely new environment. He continued, "Our Indian audiences are watching shows that have been created in other countries and the reverse is happening as well.”

The actor also stated that there are several widely accessible routes for entertainment, therefore the viewers' time, effort, and energy spent coming to the theatres must be justified with quality material.

On the work front, Ranveer will be next seen in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which is directed by Karan Johar and also stars Alia Bhatt.
