Siddharth told Kanan in an interview that she landed the role in 2018, after a meeting with Ayan that was scheduled to last 10 minutes but ended up being three hours long. At that time, her character was called Obsession and she was scheduled to play a secondary role in the film.
When asked how she feels about the film’s “main lead” title, and carrying it on her shoulders, Mooney said, “I feel like people really like me, I feel like my hard work for so many years is paying off. I think there’s no shortcut to working hard…when you see the fruits of Your work, it’s amazing. But this is everyone’s movie. Every character is so important to making it what they are today, so you can’t deny anyone’s contribution to the movie.”
According to Dharma Productions, Brahmastra has grossed over Rs 425 crore internationally. The film, with a budget of Rs 410 crore, was planned to be the first installment of a trilogy and to launch a related world of films and possibly a streaming series. In recent weeks, both Ranbir and producer Karan Johar have stated that the budget being distributed online is for the entire trilogy, not just a single photo.
