If Shah Rukh Khan’s Vanarāstra was the best part of Brahmāstra for you, then here’s something you can’t do without knowing
Was Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo as Mohan Bhargav, who wields the Vanarāstra, your favorite part of Brahmāstra? Well, director Ayan Mukerji has some great news for you!
When Brahmāstra finally arrived in theatres, audiences had mixed reactions to it. While some loved the performances as well as Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor ’s chemistry, there were many who trolled the dialogues and the story-line. But there was one thing that majority of fans agreed upon-- Shah Rukh Khan ’s cameo was a super hit! In fact, soon after the film’s release, many started a petition requesting a spin-off featuring just SRK as Mohan Bhargav, a scientist and a member of the Brahmānsh who wields Vanarāstra . Well, our wishes have been answered!
In his latest interview with Bollywood Bubble, director Ayan Mukerji confirmed that he will be making Vanarāstra with SRK. Talking about fan theories, he shared, “So I’ve read some of this stuff and I plan to read a lot more. And even before reading, let me tell you. For Vanarāstra and all, when we were making that film, shooting that sequence, we ourselves, me, my assistants, we ourselves were like ‘This is such a cool tonality and we’ve got to do Vanarāstra as a film.”
He went on to add, “So, this is what the Astraverse is meant to be about you know. We have a project that we want to do called Vanarāstra, we have not developed it, but, this is what it’s about.” Well, his lead star Ranbir chimed in to suggest a solid plot line for Shah Rukh’s very own film in the Astraverse. The actor, who is currently winning hearts as Shiva, stated, “It could have been the origins. It could be a prequel to where he was a young scientist. It could be anything.”
Well, fans are already looking forward to the second and third part in Brahmāstra trilogy. The confirmation of Shah Rukh’s Vanarāstra is like the cherry on top and now we just can’t keep calm!
