After Shah Rukh Khan, fans are convinced they saw Deepika Padukone as Goddess Jal Devi in Brahmastra trailer. They believe they spotted Deepika wearing a red attire, hair open and blue energy twirling out of her hands. Some are already imagining Deepika’s entry with Amitabh Bachchan’s voice in the backdrop. With a high tide behind her, fans are sure Deepika is a part of the project. While the next shot is a close-up of Mouni Roy, it will rather be interesting to see if this fan prophecy indeed stands true. Also, Deepika and Ayan have previously worked together in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. 




Ever since Brahmastra’s teaser released, fans have been comparing the film’s VFX to that of The Avengers. They’ve posted screenshots of several similar-looking scenes from popular Hollywood superhero projects with that of Brahmastra and we can bet that you won’t be able to tell the difference. And thus began fan theories that Brahmastra is a Bollywood sci-fi project. However, Alia had dismissed the fan theories and told Vogue, “It’s my most action-heavy film but it’s a different kind of organic action, not dishoom-dishoom.” Further adding, “If you call it that, then people will imagine us running around the city in red underwear.”

Hrithik Roshan or Ranveer Singh to star in Brahmastra part 2 ‘Dev’? Check out the details
Brahmastra part 2 will be called ‘Brahmastra part 2: Dev’ 

Brahmastra Part II Announced; Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh in the Running  for Lead Role?

It is not confirmed, who will play ‘Dev’ in the second part. However, reports suggest Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh have been approached for the lead role. The trilogy’s first film announces Dev and makes for an intriguing introduction for the second part. Ayan Mukerji directed the first part after directing Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, amongst others. Dev wants the Brahmastra to become the greatest ever power. The first part of the trilogy had a budget of over Rs 350 crore, making it one of the most massive films this year. You can watch Brahmastra 1 in Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and English. The movie has over Rs 18 crore in advance booking and has been jointly produced by Disney and Dharma Productions, amongst others. 

It is not confirmed who will play Dev in the second part. However, reports suggest Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh have been approached for the lead role.

Alia Bhatt is the real villain 

Alia Bhatt is clearly shown as Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest in the film. However, some fans think there’s more than what meets the eye and that Alia might be the main antagonist. Some theories suggest that Alia is just pretending to be Ranbir’s lover in the film in a quest to steal the Astras. 

Ranbir Kapoor to die 

The fan theory which we would like to disagree with. But many people think that Ranbir will sacrifice himself in the end being the Agni Astra. Along with this, many fans feel that Amitabh Bachchan ’s Guru might also be a shady character with an ulterior motive.


Lord Shiva’s vahana (vehicle) is Nandi (a bull). A scene in the trailer shows Shiva’s (Ranbir Kapoor) intense fight scene with what fans claim to be Mahishasura. They’ve posted individual screenshots of the fight sequence on Twitter where a flaming red buffalo marches towards him. This is what a fan said about the scene, “Can there be a fight scene between Nandi and Mahisasur. That will be awesome. Deity vs Demon. Bull vs Buffalo (sic).” 


The fans strike back with Jai Shri Ram: From being a slogan devoted to God Ram to finding a new life as a popular cry among extremist right-wing organizations, the three words ‘Jai Shri Ram’ have undergone an amusing evolution. Currently, it is being used by Ranbir Kapoor fans and fan pages to defend the film, highlighting how it is showing Hinduism in a positive light. After all, the very name of Ayan Mukerji’s directorial venture refers to one of the greatest weapons created by Brahma in Hindu mythology.

The music video for the song Dance Ka Bhoot provides another angle that can help the makers defend Brahmastra as a pro-Hindu movie. Ranbir’s protagonist Shiva dances in what seems like a Dussehra procession, prays in front of a Ram idol, and then shoots a fiery arrow at the Ravan effigy. This is prompting some audiences to even feel that watching Brahmastra is their ‘duty as a Hindu’. 

On Brahmastra‘s Big Day, Why Shah Rukh Khan Is The Object Of Internet Obsession?

Turns out, the fan theories were right after all

Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which boasts of a super impressive star cast including, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy, has more to offer than what the trailers presented (read a cameo appearance by one of the biggest stars). The film hit the theatres on Friday and turns out, all the fan theories about Shah Rukh Khan being a part of the film were true after all. Twitter users absolutely cannot keep calm after Shah Rukh came on screens. The many, many tweets reflect the jubilant mood of Shah Rukh Khan fans. 

An excited Shah Rukh Khan fan shared this post because one tweet isn’t enough to reflect how excited SRK fans are. “There can’t be another SRK in a thousand years. Long live the king,” added another fan.

“Our Scientist SRK,” added another fan.

“Seeing Shah Rukh Khan after years on the big screen. My heart is full. SRK fans will have a good time watching this one. Missed you King,” added another fan.

Shah Rukh Khan made back-to-back cameo appearances in films this year and we are not complaining at all. Neither are Twitter users. An excited SRK fan shared stills of Shah Rukh Khan from Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, Madhavan’s Rocketry: The Nambi Effect and Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra. A Shah Rukh Khan appreciation post of sorts by a fan: 

Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, ambitious and entertaining, has the makings of a blockbuster of the sort that Bollywood has been desperately seeking for a while.”

Brahmastra is the first film in the trilogy announced by Dharma Productions. Part 1: Shiva stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt along with Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. Shah Rukh Khan has an important 10-minute cameo in the film. The movie excels with heavy VFX and visual spectacles which we haven’t seen in Hindi films before. While the film is desi with its ‘astraverse’ universe, Ayan has borrowed references from western films. In an interview before, Ayan had mentioned his being a huge fan of the Universes created by the West and Brahmastra is his attempt at creating a desi universe for the global audience. Hence, it is no surprise to see a Harry Potter inspiration in the film or, for that matter, The Lord of the Rings as well. Check it out. 

In the film, Shiva is seen getting visions of what is to happen, as if his fate is attached to those on the dark side as well. A warm and fuzzy reminder of Harry getting visions of the Dark Lord which he couldn’t understand in the beginning. So does Shiva, till he finally understands it. A similar reference could be attributed to Frodo’s journey through the Ring to Mount Doom in The Lord Of The Rings.

In another scene, we see Shiva, who is also the Agny Astra, fearing fire because he believes the same fire took his mother’s life. However, a theory indicates that, like Lilly Potter, protected Harry in the series, perhaps a similar fate was shared by Shiva in Brahmastra where his mother, Amrita, accidentally develops an unfathomable connection between Shiva and Dev (his father) while protecting her child.

Meanwhile, Mouni’s appearance obviously seems like an ode to Scarlett Witch Wanda. However, her powers and her character are truly very different. 

While the resemblance is there, one can say with full assurance that it doesn’t seem like a duplication. It is simply an inspiration with a desi touch to it, which makes it a Made In India production. There are a lot of new elements added as well. Be it the astras, the universe and the idea in itself is very novel.

Brahmastra has been released in multiple languages, including English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
