The costliest Bollywood movie ever, Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, hit the silver screen yesterday.
Admittedly, it has been receiving mixed reviews from the audiences and film critics.
One celebrity who has been trolling the film is Kangana Ranaut.
Kangana is known to be loud and clear with her opinions but this time, she has gone on overdrive by calling the movie a ‘disaster’.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, the actress first took a jibe at the film’s producer, Karan Johar, for apparently feeding lies to the audience.
“This is what happens when you try to sell a lie, @karanjohar in every show forces people to call @aliabhatt and Ranbir best actors and @ayan_mukerji a genius…slowly he started to believe this lie…what else explains the 600 crore budget of this film to a director who never made a good enough film in his life…Fox studio in India had to sell itself to fund this film…How many more studios will be closed because of these clowns?” she wrote.
“People like Karan Johar should be questioned for their conduct, he is more interested in everyone’s sex life than in his films scripts.”
“He self admittedly buys reviews, stars and fake collection numbers and tickets. This time around he tried to ride Hinduism and the South wave…all turned pujaris suddenly and begged south actors, writers and directors to promote their film…they will do everything but not hire competent writers, directors, actors and other talent,” Kangana wrote.
Kangana also accused Karan Johar of begging south actors and directors to promote the film.
She didn’t even spare the director!
She wrote, “Everyone who called Ayan Mukerji a genius should be jailed immediately… He took 12 years to make this film, he replaced 14 DOP’s he shot for more than 400 days for this film and changed 85 ADs and burnt 600 crores to ashes.”
She went on to accuse him of changing the film name from “Jalaluddin Rumi to Shiva last minute”.
However, despite the mixed reviews, the film has performed amazingly well at the box office.
The opening weekend collection for the Hindi version will be around Rs. 110 crores, which is simply phenomenal for a non-holiday release.
