Ayan Mukerji Talks About Making A Web Series For Brahmastra
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji shared his thoughts about expanding his film Brahmastra, during the interview he also mentioned the influence of Marvel on his film and that he might also launch a web series of his film. Ayan said, “The Astraverse plan came to life as we were bringing Brahmastra Part One to life. I didn’t always have this word Astraverse in mind when we first started on this project,”
He added, “It happened along the way. But about two years ago, when Covid-19 struck, I saw how Marvel does their work in Phase One, Two, Three, etc. I had a programme for Phase One of the Astraverse. It involved some of the content for streaming. There is a certain kind of storytelling, which told over nine episodes at a slightly slower pace, deeper character building, is something that gives joy,”
Talking about Marvel’s influence he said, “In May, Disney had sent me to Los Angeles to be a part of some international studio summit and I presented Brahmastra over there. I met Kevin Feige there and it was wonderful,” While talking about expanding his film on OTT platforms, he added, “Since we all consume content on streaming, I do want to divide some stuff for that platform. But there is some stuff which is better geared for the big screen. This is the vision, and I wish I could press a button and make this vision come to life. It would be so great if I could hit every deadline. But Astraverse is a startup company and a large-scale mainstream experiment.”
Brahmastra is a cinematic universe of Hindu Mythological concepts. Written and directed by Ayan Mukerji the film is backed by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Production. The film features an ensemble cast including Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy among others.
