Ayan Mukerji, who started off as AD with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Swades and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, made his debut as feature film director with ‘Wake Up Sid’. Ayan’s second film being ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and the third being ‘Brahmastra’. All the three films being successful also happen to be with Dharma Productions and has Ranbir Kapoor as the common leading man. A hat-trick with three things in common. Is it some sort of strategy, one may ask!!
It is notable to see that with just two films to his credit, Ayan Mukerji had the courage and imagination for such a huge project and kudos to the producers and the actors to have had complete faith in Ayan’s thoughts. So much so that actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna also lent their credible support.
With Brahmastra, it is not just a success story for Ayan but even the producers – Dharma Production who have recently seen back-to-back success – first with ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ and now ‘Brahmastra’.
As for the leading man Ranbir Kapoor, ‘Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva’ comes as fourth successful film with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions after ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ & of course ‘Wake Up Sid’. Not just that but was the leading man of Ayan’s earlier two projects too.
Well, we wait with bated breath for the three to come up together again.
