Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s fees in Brahmastra
A clip of Ayan, Ranbir, and Alia from a recent interview with trade ananlyst Komal Nahta has surfaced online where the director is seen addressing the rumour about Ranbir and Alia not charging anything for Brahmastra. Ayan revealed that RK did not charge money for the making of Brahmastra. He said, “Yeh film hamari bohut hi zid aur personal sacrifices se bani hai. So yes, yeh Sach hai ki jo Ranbir ki price as a star, actor it is on a film, he did not take anything for the making of Brahmastra. Aur main manta hoon ke iske baigaar hum yeh film ko bana nahi paate. It is a very very big thing kyuki it would not have been possible without this kind of support and I don’t know how many other people would have done this.”
Coming to Alia, Ayan Mukerji said that her fees was not too high to begin with, given that they started working on the film 8 years ago, when she was not the star that she is today. He further added that by the time the film was completed, whatever amount she earned went into the making of the movie as well.

Meanwhile, in an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Ayan spoke about the budget of the film and said, “Brahmastra is a big-budget movie. When we started to create Brahmastra, we were not creating just part 1. It was an investment that we were making in trilogy and in part 2 and part 3. So, a lot of our cost that we invested in part 1 is also invested in setting up the foundation, the writing, building assets, concept work on Part 2 and Part 3. And then there was idea which was always in my mind but which really came to life while making Brahmastra was the idea of Astra, Vanastra.”
