Earlier, filmmaker Ayan Mukherjee had said, “It is set in India as it exists today but the name of the film is called ‘Brahmastra’ because the energy, wisdom and powers in the film come from ancient India. As far as costumes are concerned, there are some which may not be the way you would expect them to be. In its core it has romance as an element but it has got a new flavour to it. It’s a huge project and lot of people have faith in it and in me so I need to deliver for my own career, for the producer, the actors and the entire crew.” Till then, we would have to wait and watch if this new genre film will be able to carve out a niche for itself and spell the magic on the box office.
