The makers of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Brahmastra’ on Sunday announced that the film, directed by Ayan Mukerji, has earned Rs 160 crore globally in two days.
On the first day of its release, the fantasy-adventure film raked in Rs 75 crore at the global box office. The massive opening ignited celebrations across the country, the film industry and theatre owners.
However, actress Kangana Ranaut believes that the makers of ‘Brahmastra’ have shared fake figures.
Kangana took to her Instagram story on Sunday morning and reacted to the alleged manipulation of box office numbers.

The actress shared a tweet which read, “So, few trade analysts are not giving #Brahmastra BO figures, as they’re completely manipulated. The ones who’re going gaga with fake BO figures are heftily paid. This manipulation is possibly India’s biggest so far, over 60-70 percent fake figures. It’s not just ego, it’s coke-ego.”
Along with the tweet, Kangana wrote, “Wow, that’s a new low… seventy percent.”
Kangana, who has time and again locked horns with Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar, unleashed some scathing remarks on ‘Brahmastra’.
In a series of Instagram stories, Kangana took potshots at Ayan Mukerji and alleged that he changed the title of ‘Brahmastra Part I’ from ‘Jalaluddin Rumi’ to ‘Shiva’ after witnessing the success of ‘Baahubali’, in which Prabhas essayed the role of Shivudu.
‘Brahmastra’ is set in modern-day India, against the premise of a secret society called the Brahmansh; who generation after generation have protected many divine ‘Astras’ (weapons) that were created in ancient India, and are safeguarded from the eyes of the world.
Produced by Star Studios and Dharma Productions, the magnum opus is currently in theatres in 2D, 3D and Imax 3D in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
Not just that, but the film also has a special cameo by superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
