Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra, which was scheduled to come out during summer in 2020, has now been postponed to the winters of 2020, according to a report on entertainment website Bollywood Hungama. This is the second time the film’s release has been delayed. It was originally expected to come out on Christmas 2019 but due to prolonged VFX process the film was pushed to summer 2020.
A source close to the development told the portal that a major chunk of VFX is still pending which includes the stuff shot with Shah Rukh Khan at a studio in Mumbai, and the plot that unfolds in Manali and Varanasi. “The company working on the visual effects has conveyed to the producers that they won’t be able to get the film ready by Summer due to complexities in the visual effects, which has come across as a shock to everyone working on the film,” the source further added.
“The makers don’t want to release a half-baked product and hence giving the adequate time to visual effects. The vision is to bring in the biggest film from Bollywood, with no compromises on any aspects. Ayan and Karan are fine with a little more delay as they are sure that the audience will be blown away by the visuals once the trailer and teaser is unveiled.”
An official announcement will be made with a poster or teaser with a bound release date, once the makers get a confirmation from the VFX company about the time by which their work will be done.
Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra is the first part in his fantasy trilogy. The film also features actors Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles.
