Even after its vast theatrical premiere, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, continues to make news. The first chapter in Ayan Mukerji’s Astraverse trilogy, which brought us to the world of Brahmastra through the eyes of Shiva (Ranbir), has received a lot of attention. The movie’s sequel, Brahmastra Part Two: Dev, was revealed at the film’s conclusion. Ayan has announced the date of the release of his sequel, while fans have come up with many concepts and speculations regarding who will play Dev on screen.
Ayan Mukerji disclosed that he plans to release Brahmastra Part Two in December 2025 while speaking with The Indian Express. Despite not yet revealing the date, he stated, “We have our target. We want to make this film and have it come out three years from now. It is a tough timeline for us considering how much time part one took. But now we have also learnt how to make these kinds of films.”
Ayan added that the sequel’s script had been “on” since Part One. He claimed that since they had enough time to work with it during the pandemic, it had already undergone numerous changes and retouches.
He did clarify, though, that there is no set a date for when shooting will start on the sequel. “Going on floors isn’t as important as when we plan to get the film out. On floors implies shooting, but, on a film like this, the pre-production, work on VFX, the post is as important as when you shoot it.” He continued by saying that production would begin as soon as the main cast was prepared and rested from Part 1.
At the box office, Brahmastra set up 23 records. Following an outstanding weekend performance of Rs. 119 cr nett across all languages, the movie held up well on its first Monday with Hindi earnings of Rs. 14.25 cr and dubbed language revenues of Rs. 2 cr, for a net of Rs. 16.25 cr nett. Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is on track to reach the Rs. 250 cr nett India milestone, making it the highest-grossing Hindi movie in India. Given the excellent overseas performance, which will surpass $10 million by Tuesday, the film is also projected to reach a worldwide gross of Rs. 450 cr.
