Initially, this had created a lot of speculations but later a source close to the Bhatt family told the Times of India, "Mr Bhatt plans to go and watch the film with the audience. He has decided to buy a ticket and watch this special film on his own and not at an industry or private screening. He wants to experience the film with the people."

Yes, you read that right! Ayan Mukerji's labour of love has been grabbing the eye balls for quite some time now and the proud father of Alia Bhatt wants to experience the visual spectacle at the theatre with her fans. Well, it would be quite interesting to know Mahesh Bhatt's first reaction to Ranbir and Alia's 'Brahmastra'.
