Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji’s labor of love starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, is on track to become a box office success. The film had a fantastic opening weekend, grossing over Rs. 225 crore globally.
According to cinema trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the Hindi version of Brahmastra made roughly Rs 108 crore in its first weekend. “Brahmstra has a FABULOUS weekend… #Hindi version… #Nett BOC…Day 1: 31.5 cr+, Day 2: 37.5 cr+, Day 3: 39.5 cr+,” he said, sharing the box collection data.
The movie’s next test will be to determine if it passes the Monday test. However, given the film’s Rs 400 crore budget, it still has a long way to go before it can be called a hit.
In a statement, an overwhelmed Ayan Mukerji stated, “I am extremely grateful to all the audiences in India and throughout the world who have showered their love and support on Brahmastra.” Their wonderful energy and trust in me and my team have made our Brahmastra adventure extremely thrilling, emotional, and amazing! The opening weekend response has made me extremely grateful for all of the favours showered upon me, and I hope viewers continue to enjoy the picture in the coming weeks.”

Brahmastra is emerging as Bollywood’s much-needed silver lining. This year’s big-budget flops in the Hindi film business have been somewhat shocking, including Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, Bachchhan Paandey, Samrat Prithviraj, and Ranbir’s previous release Shamshera. There has also been substantial debate regarding the impact of boycott movements, which have afflicted several films, including Laal Singh Chaddha.
Nonetheless, despite receiving some backlash and mixed to poor reviews, Brahmastra is still making money at the box office, and it remains to be seen if it will continue to do so. Even before its release, the film had sold almost 1 lakh tickets.
