Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor has become a box office sensation. The Ayan Mukerji-directed Karan Johar production made over Rs 200 crores at the global box office in its first four days of release. The fantasy trilogy’s upcoming sequels have sparked a flurry of fan theories and speculative posts on social media.
The movie’s OTT platform release is keenly anticipated by fans. In the past, major platforms paid astonishing sums for the digital rights to high-budget films. The staggering sum of Rs 350 crore was paid for the digital streaming rights to SS Rajamouli’s massively successful movie RRR.
KGF: Chapter 2, the successful follow-up to Yash, not far behind, sold its OTT rights for a whopping Rs 320 crore. For more than Rs 100 crores, Akshay Kumar also sold his direct-to-OTT movie Laxmmi Bomb to Disney+ Hotstar. According to numerous sources, OTT giant Disney+ Hotstar has already purchased the rights to Brahmastra. According to reports, the digital platform paid Rs 80 crore for the rights to the Ranbir-Alia movie.
Within five days of its release, the movie—which also stars Nagarjuna, Mouni Roy, and Shah Rukh Khan—passed the Rs 150 crore milestone at the Indian box office. Brahmastra Part 2: Dev, the movie’s second season, is expected to be completed by the beginning of the next year, according to director Ayan Mukerji. By December 2025, the director hopes to have the movie in theatres.
Who will play the lead part in Brahmastra 2 is a subject of much speculation. According to reports, Deepika Padukone will play Amrita, the mother of Ranbir Kapoor’s Shiva, in the sequel. For the role of Dev, the male lead in part two, a variety of possibilities have surfaced, ranging from Ranveer Singh to Hrithik Roshan.
