‘Brahmastra 2’ to release in 2025? Ayan Mukerji shares details about second installment & Dev’s identity

Ayan Mukerji says 'Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev' will go on floors the day the core team is rested from part one.

‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, released in theatres on September 9 and it has smashed box office records with its collections. Director Ayan Mukerji took a long time to release this fantasy action-adventure, but its sequel will be back on the screen, sooner.

Fan theories about how its sequel, titled Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev, will move forward are already doing the rounds on the internet. Netizens are speculating if Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh or Ranbir Kapoor will play a dual role – that of son Shiva and father Dev in the forthcoming film.

Now, in an interview with indianexpress.com, the filmmaker disclosed details about the ‘Brahmastra’ sequel and said that it will narrate Dev’s backstory as well as continue the present-day timeline.

‘I can answer very few things about Dev. The idea was to create a very clear indication about where we are going next with the storytelling. That now we are really getting into the story of our antagonist. Decoding it, giving you some hook to hang on to for part two. Dev is the fulcrum of the entire Brahmastra trilogy,’ Ayan said.

‘The problems that this community and the world will face because of Brahmastra, what is the real stress with it. All of this will actually unfold in Dev’s story. His story is meant to take us back into his past but also he has returned into the present. So, the idea is, we will be continuing the present story, but also telling you the story of the past,’ he added.

Ayan Mukerji said he will announce who will be portraying the role of Dev when the time is right and he is targeting to release the second installment of ‘Brahmastra’ in 2025. He hopes teachings from making a VFX-heavy part one will pay off for its sequel.

‘We have our target. We would like to make this film and have it come out three years from now. It is a tough timeline for us considering how much time part one took. But now we have also learnt how to make these kinds of films,’ he said.

Ayan also mentioned that the script is ready and it has gone through several rewrites and revisions to ensure it is splendid.

‘Part two script has been on since the time we started part one. This was always one story. The thread is ready. We have already put in a lot of work into part two. We have written and rewritten because we had time, COVID had happened. There have been many months of part two work. We already have a lot of stuff on part two. But of course, I will look at it once part one is settled,’ he said.

Ayan Mukerji further stated that the film will go on floors the day they are rested from part one.
