written by Ritika Nath | June 20, 2022

Brahmastra's teaser was recently published, and it showed a glimpse into Ranbir Kapoor's Astraverse. While the trailer sparked a slew of theories, one audience member noted that Ranbir is shown wearing shoes as he enters what appears to be a temple. Soon after, the picture began to receive controversy as a consequence of it.

The movie is inspired by the great elements Vayu (air), Agni (fire), and Jal (water) (water). Ranbir Kapoor is said to be a Brahmastra who possesses the power of fire.

In a brief statement Ayan wrote, “We had some people in our community, upset because of one shot in our Trailer - Ranbir’s character wearing shoes as he rings a Bell.
As the Creator of this film (and a devotee), I wanted to humbly address what happened here.
In our movie, Ranbir is not entering a temple, but a Durga Puja Pandal.”

The debutant director further stated, “My own family has been organising a similar kind of Durga Puja Celebration for… 75 years! One, which I have been a part of since my childhood. In my experience, we only take off our shoes, right on the stage where the Goddess is, and not when you enter the Pandal.
It is personally important for me to reach out to anyone who may have been upset with this image… because above all, Brahmāstra is created as a movie experience which pays respect to, and celebrates - Indian culture, traditions and history. That is at the heart of why I made this movie, so it is very important to me that this feeling, reaches every Indian who is watching Brahmāstra!”
