Bollywood movie Brahmastra is doing wonders at the box office and has surprisingly revived Bollywood. It stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the leading roles, while amazing actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Shah Rukh Khan and Mouni Roy were also seen in pivotal roles.
The film was directed by Ayan Mukherji, while another popular filmmaker Karan Johar joined to produce the film with some others. And where two creative minds work together, some clashes can obviously be expected.
Both Karan Johar and Ayan Mukherji appeared at an event of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI). There, the two filmmakers were asked if they had any differences while making Brahmastra. To this, they confessed and opened up about their clashes.
Karan and Ayan also went on to reveal the story of re-shooting of Kesariya song due to creative differences. Ayan began by saying, “There was stuff which Karan did not like. There was a big Kaali Puja sequence in Brahmastra. When you (Karan Johar) saw the sequence, you were very harsh. He really b*tched about it. I hope I am allowed to say that word.”
In response, KJo disagreed and said, “I never did that. I said that the scene was very terrible and I said I think you need to re-shoot it. And there was actually, and we can say it now, Kesariya was shot in another way.”
“Kesariya was shot with Ranbir dancing quite feverishly. When we saw the song, I said ‘What the hell is going on? What is wrong with you Ayan?’. Why were they dancing? Kesariya was shot differently. Same tune and melody but treated differently. It is then that Ayan realized it has to be treated differently”, Karan continued.
We are glad that the makers of Brahmastra rectified their mistake in time, or else it would have been the second big reason to invite massive trolling for the song after the disastrous ‘love storiyaan’ part.
