Ayan’s 2022 blockbuster Brahmastra starred Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The movie marked the beginning of a big-budget fantasy adventure franchise. Brahmastra follows a Shiva (Ranbir), who sets out on a journey to find the origins of his special powers with Isha (Alia), a woman he falls in love with at first sight.
Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy also feature in the movie, produced by Star Studios and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Special appearances in the film are by Shah Rukh Khan and Nagarjuna.
The film, which earned over ₹400 crore at the worldwide box office, was one of the major commercial successes of the Hindi film industry during the pandemic.
