Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Brahmastra has done really well on the theatre. The movie stars some of the big faces of Entertainment. The movie is also called for boycott. Even some bollywood celebrities like Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri and Kangana Ranaut also criticized Brahmastra. Filmmaker Karan Johar recently opens up on the negativity.
Speaking about negativity the filmmaker said, “I was humongously stressed. The night prior I could sleep a wink, and I was not able to tell Ayan this, or Ranbir or Alia, because I felt like I had to be like ‘yay, we’ve done this, it’s great, it is going to be massive and don’t worry’. There were all kinds of mixed reviews coming up (after the release) and people were saying either it was amazing or the opposite of it. I felt it (Brahmastra) was such new animal in the jungle, people were having adverse opinions.”
He further said, “While I have no problems with everyone’s opinions, I sometimes feel sad, because within the industry we have some types of people, who are working for the industry and are with the industry for years… you can be critical but being negative is not nice. Critical we will accept with open arms, it is very imperative, everyone needs that policing. But I feel sometimes, some people push that from being critical to being negative. Sometimes I feel we are all part of the same industry, so don’t you want this film to work… Sometimes people within the industry, who call themselves members of the media also, celebrate ruination of a film. I feel that is never a good thing.”
Brahmastra, helmed by Ayan Mukerji, was released in theatres on September 9 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Apart from Mouni, the film features Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Nagarjuna. Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone, and other celebrities have cameo appearances in the film.
