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.
The film Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy, Amitabh Bachchan, and Nagarjuna Akkineni, has got a huge amount of excitement. After Ayan gave us a taste of the Astraverse in the trailer, everyone's thoughts on it burst on social media.
Ayan expressed his gratitude to the fans for their positive reactions to the trailer on social media. In an Instagram message, the filmmaker shared his excitement for Brahmastra's September 9 release.
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!”
Karan Johar's Dharma Production, Prime Focus, and Starlight Pictures, in collaboration with Star Studios, are producing the film Brahmastra.
The story is set in the fictional universe of 'Astraverse’ which will be released in 4 languages- Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. The film is directed by Ayan Mukherji in Hindi and by SS Rajamouli in the other languages.
