The film’s budget is Rs 410 Crore, and it is well on its way to becoming one of the most successful of 2022. Over Rs 350 Crore have already been collected worldwide for the movie.
The film also registered an advance booking record of 9.25 lakh tickets on National Cinema Day, breaking the previous record of KGF: Chapter 2. Social media has speculated about the budget breakdown of the movie while it’s enjoying success.
Netizens questioned whether Ranbir Kapoor did the film for free or if Alia Bhatt received too little pay for her role as Isha after Ayan Mukerji disclosed that virtually the entire budget went into making it a high-quality experience. For the movie to succeed, all the actors and crew had to make sacrifices, according to Ayan in an interview with Komal Nahta.
Ranbir took a lesser amount for Brahmastra than the fees he should charge as a star, Ayan explained to Komal. He said, “This is a very, very big deal because it wouldn’t be possible to make this film.” Ranbir, however, clarified that he charged for it. As well as being a part producer, he told me, “I own this equity for life. Maine part one mein paise nhi liye, but eventually jo faith aur belief hai ki 3 parts mein jo yeh film bana sakti hai, that is beyond anything I could get as an actor, price as an actor. (I did not take money for Part One, but I believe the three parts combined will make a tremendous amount. The amount will far outweigh anything I will receive as an actor.)
According to Ayan, Alia Bhatt joined the film just a few releases into her career and wasn’t the star she is today when she joined. According to him, Alia’s portion in the film wasn’t much, but by the time the film was completed, even Alia admitted that all of it went into making it.”
Luv Ranjan’s untitled film will be Ranbir’s next release. Along with Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt is currently filming Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
