Even two weeks after its theatrical debut, the film Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, is still in the news. Even though it has made a massive collection at the box office, the audience and critics have had mixed opinions about it. The film recently surpassed 350 crores in worldwide box office collections. In the midst of all, the film’s big budget has also been a hot topic. Speaking of this, Ayan was seen revealing the actors’ fees for the movie during one promotional interview with Ranbir and Alia. Are you aware that Ranbir didn’t charge anything at all?
In a recent interview with market analyst Komal Nahta, Ayan, Ranbir, and Alia discuss the rumour that they didn’t charge any fee for their roles in Brahmastra. A video of this conversation has surfaced online. RK charged no money for the making of Brahmastra, according to Ayan. The director claimed, “Yeh film Hamari bohut hi zid aur personal sacrifices se bani hai. So yes, yeh Sach hai ki jo Ranbir ki price as a star, actor it is on a film, he did not take anything for the making of Brahmastra. Aur main manta hoon ke iske baigaar hum yeh film ko bana nahi paate. It is a very, very big thing, kyuki. Without this kind of support, it would not have been possible, and I don’t know how many other people would have done this.”
Regarding Alia, Ayan Mukerji claimed that her first fees were not high given that they began production on the movie eight years ago, and she was not yet the well-known actress she is now. By the time the making of the film was finished, he had said, whatever money she had earned had also gone into its production.
