What's the Budget of Brahmastra?
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor has denied the reports which claimed that the budget of his Brahmastra is Rs 200 crore.
"These days, we are reading a lot where people are discussing the budget of the film. People are saying this much is the budget and this much is the recovery. But Brahmastra is unique being where the budget is not just for one film but for the whole trilogy," Ranbir Kapoor told Dainik Bhaskar in an interview.
He added, "The assets we have created for the film, like the fire VFX or effects for other superpowers, they will be used in three films. So, it's not like the figures floating around, whether it's hundred rupees or two hundred rupees, are correct. It's all wrong. The economics of this film is not like the economics of other films that have been made in our industry."
His comments come at a time when many trade trackers predicted that the movie is unlikely to become a profitable venture despite crossing Rs 200-crore mark due to high budget.
