Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra has been in the making for several years now. The fantasy film was earlier slated to release in 2016. However, the high VFX forced the makers to delay its original plans. Later, it was n announced that the drama would come out on Independence Day 2019 and then December 4, 2020, but owning to the lockdown, it seems the release has to wait a little longer. Now with the shoot set to be completed this month, producer Karan Johar is not keen on releasing the film on OTT platform, reported Bollywood Hungama.
A source told the portal, "Disney+ Hotstar has now asked Fox Star Studios if they can hand over Brahmastra for their streaming platform. What it means is, Disney+ Hotstar wants Brahmastra to bypass theatrical release and arrive on its platform directly. They feel Brahmastra is a keenly awaited biggie and if it gets premiered on their platform, it'll fetch them record streams."
However, Karan is not completely sold on the idea. "Producer Karan Johar has not shown interest. He believes that the VFX heavy, grand film would be best enjoyed in cinemas. As of now, there are no talks on the Brahmastra sequels. All the efforts of Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios are on completing the first part. The shoot of the film is to get over this month after which the team will fully concentrate on the post-production," the source revealed to the portal. Brahmastra, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia, and Mouni Roy, has been shot across multiple cities and countries.
