Days after Kangana Ranaut asked how several trade publications and analysts call Brahmastra a hit, the film’s lead actor, Ranbir Kapoor, defended his film. Kangana had referenced the film’s massive budget while making his point and said the film needed to do a lot more to be called a hit. In a recent interview, Ranbir said that Brahmastra’s economy is very different and that all the budget figures floating around are “wrong”.

On Wednesday, Kangana Ranaut had shared a number of posts on Instagram casting doubts on Brahmastra’s collections, saying that a film with a budget of 650 crore cannot be called success after winning 246 crores. Other sources have referred to Brahmastra’s budget as 410 crore. The film has so far earned approximately 350 crore gross worldwide and slightly less 200 crore net in India. Officially titled Brahmastra Part One – Shiva, the film is the first of a trilogy planned by Ayan Mukerji.

In an interview with Dainik Bhaskar, Ranbir said, “These days we read a lot where people discuss the budget of the film. People say it’s the budget and it’s the reshoot. But Brahmastra is unique because the budget is not only for one film but for the whole trilogy.

Reports had claimed that as much as Over 100 crore of the film’s budget was in VFX. Although Ranbir did not discuss the figure, he pointed out that much of the work already done for the first part would be used in the sequels, thus spreading this expense over the other two films. “So the assets that we created for the movie, like the fire visual effects or the effects for other superpowers, will be used in three movies. So it’s not like the numbers that were going around, that this either one hundred rupees or two hundred rupees, were correct. This is all wrong. The economics of this film is not like the economics of other films that have been made in our industry. Now we can easily move on to the parts 2 and 3. With Part 1, Ayan had to learn how to make this kind of movie,” Ranbir added.

Brahmastra also stars Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy, with extended cameos from Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Nagarjuna. The film has already become the highest-grossing Hindi film of the year on its ninth day and is on course to be one of the highest-grossing of all time.
