My Hindi film Shiva did well all over India but Brahmastra will become a blockbuster film

Telugu superstar Nagarjuna is ready to return to Bollywood with Brahmāstra Part One: Shiva after nearly two decades. The last Hindi film he was seen in was LOC Kargil (2003) where he played army officer Major Padmapani Acharya. At the film’s promotional event in Chennai on Wednesday, Nagarjuna, who was joined by his Brahmāstra co-star Ranbir Kapoor and filmmaker SS Rajamouli, said he hoped the film would be a smash hit at the box office. and break all previous records. “I made a movie [in Hindi] called Shiva (1990) which did well nationwide, but I think Brahmāstra will become a landmark film,” he said.

He said that Brahmāstra will join the leagues of all Pan-Indian films which have been ringing ticket counters and performing exceptionally well across the country. “I have always been inspired by Tamil films like Enthiran (2010) and 2.0 (2018). They have traveled all over the world and been appreciated. Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) by Rajamouli sir broke all barriers and numbers. And then Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017), RRR and the KGF series arrived. Kamal ji’s (Haasan) movie Vikram came out after that and broke all records. And now Brahmāstra is coming,” he explained.


Recalling when director Ayan Mukerji approached him for the fantasy film, Nagarjuna said, “I remember Ayan as a little boy coming home with a comic in his hand. I said, ‘Ayan, what am I going to do in the movie?’ He asked me to read the book. It was a 20 page comic strip. It showed my character and what I do in the film. They call me an artist in the movie and I have the strongest astra with me called the astra nandi. It fascinated me.

The Annamaya (1997) actor is finally thrilled to make a film rooted in Indian mythology over a career spanning nearly four decades. He said: “I’ve always been fascinated by Indian mythology because I grew up with it. In my youth, I remember seeing NTR garu and my father ANR making mythological films. It stuck in my mind. And finally, after so many years of my career, I had the opportunity to make a film that deals with Indian Vedas, mythology, astras and culture. It really inspired me for Brahmāstra.

Shedding light on his experience collaborating with Ayan, the 62-year-old actor said: “The precision and efficiency with which Ayan shot was amazing. What I saw on screen as the finished product was just too fascinating. I’m so glad to be a part of it. When Ayan started working on the film, he was 29 and now he’s 39! I can imagine how much time, passion and love he put in the movie.

When asked what other things also impressed him about Brahmāstra, Nagarjuna shared, “Working with Ranbir was a wonderful experience. One of my favorite songs from the movie is Deva Deva. The video for the song will blow your mind. And this is my first 3D film!

Produced by Star Studios, Dharma Productions, Prime Focus and Starlight Pictures, Brahmāstra Part One: Shiva will hit theaters on September 9, 2022 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
