The release of Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt-starrer Brahmastra has been postponed to summer 2020, the film’s director Ayan Mukerji has announced. In a letter addressed to fans, he expressed hope that they’d make up for the delay by delivering a movie that the ‘country can really love and feel proud of’.
Sharing reasons for the delay, Ayan wrote in a letter addressed to ‘whomever it may concern at this point, people from our film industry and movie lovers who follow film news’, that ‘Brahmastra will now be released in 2020, and would not be ready in time for the originally announced December release.
Ayan wrote, “Brahmastra for me is a dream that began in 2011 and I’ve been actively pursuing it since Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani released in 2013. That dream is about creating a movie that offers our country something that’s really new and amazing and next level…in terms of story, character and emotions but also in terms of visual and visual effects.”
Attributing the delay to labour-intensive visual effects work, Ayan wrote, “It’s been a long, long road to achieve this vision. When we broke the logo for Brahmastra at the Kumbh, we were excited that the end of the road is near, Christmas 2019…the date we announced for the release of the movie. But in the past weeks, I have learnt that teams working on the movie, lead by my VFX teams need more time in order to get the VFX right, to get the sound and music right, to get the film right.”
