Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva’ seems to have finally broken the #BoycottBollywood curse. The early estimates indicated that the Ayan Mukherji movie is doing wonders at the box office.
If reports are to be believed, the film has already raked up a whopping Rs 160 crore in just two days. The Rs 415 crore budget movie has entered the Rs 100cr club in just two days. Also starring Nagarjuna, Shah Rukh Khan, and Mouni Roy, Brahmastra has set an all-time record for Hindi films for the highest single days ever at PVR and Cinepolis chains.
Sharing the good news with his fans, filmmaker-host Karan Johar wrote, “The light shines bright… Eternally grateful to the audience for their Big Love..”
Meanwhile, Ayan also shared a post on Instagram expressing his delight.
Sharing about the box office collections, Ayan wrote, “Brahmastra 2-Days Box Office. There is no Brahmastra greater than love in this world. Thank you to all our audiences, for spreading Love and Light in Cinemas this weekend!”
However, many claimed it to be fake and criticised the filmmaker and director for manipulating box office figures. Even actress Kangana Ranaut criticised both the filmmaker and the director. Many even shared visuals of empty theatres.
Criticising the movie, Kangana wrote, “This is what happens when you try to sell a lie, @karanjohar in every show forces people to call @aliaabhatt and Ranbir best actors and @ayanmukerji a genius… slowly he started to believe this lie… what else explains the 600cr budget of this film to a director who never made a good enough film in his life… Fox Studio in India had to sell itself to fund this film…. How many more studios will be closed because of these clowns?”
