After ‘Brahmastra’, Ayan Mukerji confirms spinoff starring Shah Rukh Khan

Brahmastra: In a recent chat, Ayan Mukerji floated the idea of a spin-off based on Mohan character during the filming process, “Before the fans were saying it, we were also saying that ourselves. When we were shooting the sequence in 2019, we were also saying on sets. As we discovered the personality of the scientist, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do stuff. We have to do the origins story of the scientist!’”

The filmmaker teased the spin-off may tell the background story of the scientist, adding, “We were also vibing on that frequency, my assistants and I. So, I guess my response to the spin-off demand is that: We are already thinking about it.”

“We are hearing everything and are planning our next moves,” the director added.

Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Brahmastra Part 1- saw Shiva as Ranbir as protagonist beside Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Mouni Roy, and others. Besides Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone also appeared as a guest appearance in the movie.

Shah Rukh Khan’s fans were swooning over his cameo appearance in the much-anticipated film Brahmastra. The superstar’s role as Mohan Bhargav, a scientist who wielded Vanarastra, has been one of the most talked-about aspects of the film.

Many even called him the “best part” of the film and took to social media to demand a spin-off focusing on his character. And their prayers were answered when Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji recently confirmed the same.

Mukerji has now shared that not only Shah Rukh’s fans but the makers of the film have also been thinking about a spin-off for his character. In fact, the idea was first floated while they were filming for the sequence. The filmmaker teased that the spin-off might tell the origin story of the scientist.

Mukerji told That, “Before the fans were saying it, we were also saying that ourselves. When we were shooting the sequence in 2019, we were also saying on sets. As we discovered the personality of the scientist, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do stuff. We have to do the origins story of the scientist!’”

The director added that his team also agreed with the idea that Shah Rukh’s character should not be limited to a cameo in just one film. He said, “We were also vibing on that frequency, my assistants and I. So, I guess my response to the spin-off demand is that: We are already thinking about it. We are hearing everything and are planning our next moves.”

Brahmastra Part 1 – Shiva stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role alongside Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy among others. Apart from Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone also featured in a guest appearance in the film. The sci-fi drama was released in theatres on September 9 and has been performing well at the box office. Mukerji has plans to make two more films in the franchise, with which he intends to establish a multiverse called ‘Astraverse’.
