Brahmastra advance booking has started on a positive note


The eagerly awaited Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, will debut on September 9. The movie, which Ayan Mukerji directed, has been in development for a long time. The movie has had a successful start to its advance booking despite calls for a boycott from across the industry. The movie has sold about 27,000 tickets at three national chains in less than 24 hours since pre-bookings went live: PVR, Inox, and Cinepolis. According to a report in Pinkvilla, audiences are also drawn to the IMAX performances. It should be noted that only the 3D version of the movie can currently be reserved in advance; the regular 2D version’s tickets should become available the following week.

There has been a lot of interest in Brahmastra because of its enormous scope and the focus on its lead actors. Shah Rukh Khan makes a cameo appearance in the movie, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna in key roles. According to reports, Brahmastra’s opening day revenue is currently estimated by the industry to be between Rs 18 and 22 crore; however, if ticket sales continue at this pace, the figure may increase.

According to the Pinkvilla report, bookings have been positive across markets. It said that Cinepolis in Patna sold 350 tickets in just five hours, and the owner said he anticipates a sellout by Monday night.

The Brahmastra team is doing everything possible to promote the movie. Recently, the main cast held a press conference in Hyderabad with producer Karan Johar and the support of SS Rajamouli and Jr. NTR.

At the occasion, Rajamouli discussed Ayan’s love of Brahmastra and admitted that when he heard about the movie, his childhood fantasies came true. He stated, “There is a lot of difference between the kind of cinema Karan Johar makes and I make, but I admire his passion for cinema. Five years back, he told me about Brahmastra with a mad boy called Ayan Mukerji. I agreed due to the respect I had towards him. I knew nothing about the film. When Ayan started narrating about these Astras to me, all my childhood fantasies came to life. He has put in a lot of energy in creating this Astraverse. Everyone is emotionally charged in using the weapons. This kind of film needs to be supported. Its about the superpowers we have in our culture, and folklore. Everything about Brahmastra is in Indian tradition. I am doing all I can to represent the film in South markets.”

Rs. 410 crore was reportedly spent on the production of Brahmastra, making it the most expensive Hindi movie ever. This Friday, it will be shown in theatres.
