Bollywood filmmaker Ayan Mukerji, who is currently basking in the success of his magnum opus ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’ has hinted at the release of its second part.
Ayan told Indian Express that the second installment titled ‘Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev’ will be released in December 2025.
While there are several theories around the antagonist Dev, Shiva’s father, teased in the first part, reports suggest that actors Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh have been considered to play the role.
“Dev is the fulcrum of the entire Brahmastra trilogy. I can’t tell you who Dev is. When the time is right, I will announce,” Ayan said.
The second part will have a series of flashbacks to highlight how Dev will shape Shiva’s future.
As Brahmastra continues a successful run at the box office, Ayan penned a heartfelt note for the audience.
Ayan shared a video that began with a poster claiming the movie’s gross worldwide collection so far has been Rs 225 crores, followed by snippets of the film.
Ayan expressed gratitude for the audience and wrote, “Brahmastra has gotten off to a great start with audiences over its first weekend! The feeling is only of Gratitude and more Gratitude – for our Audiences!”
He added, “The Acceptance from Audiences – is the only reward we work for at the movies. The Future of the Brahmastra Trilogy, and the Astraverse, eventually lies in the hands of our Audience, and this weekend we have received back from them… Light – for the years of work that went into this Venture!”
“I feel proud that we managed to create great energy at the cinemas over the last 3 days, with people coming out and sitting together jointly – to watch a very new kind of movie for our Cinema, one which takes Technology to the next level, and does it while retaining the soul of Indian culture and spirituality,” continued Ayan.
He concluded by giving some statistics, “We were also the #1 Movie at the Global Box-Office this weekend… another source of pride, excitement, and progress, for us! Putting out good energy for the next few weeks of Brahmastra’s Journey at the Cinemas… and also for the Love of Movies doing well in general, the most popular art form of our times, one that entertains and should unite us!”
The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and south actor Nagarjuna in the lead roles, and hit the theatres on September 9, 2022, in Hindi and Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
