Although the advance bookings are happening for ‘Brahmastra’ in an impressive manner especially in the Northern belt, the film incurred a loss of Rs 1.5 Cr a week before its actual release.
On Friday evening, fans of Jr NTR were disappointed when the Brahmastra event with the Telugu superstar as the chief guest was cancelled.
The event was planned in a very big way in Hyderabad with Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna, SS Rajamouli, and Karan Johar having flown down to the city to join Jr NTR.
According to ETimes, the special Brahmastra event’s cancellation has led to a massive loss of Rs 1.5 crore.
“There was proper police permission but due to overcrowding the permission was revoked the makers must have lost about Rs 1.50 crore,” the source said.
Elucidating the issue, Rajamouli said, “The event at Ramoji Film City was unfortunately cancelled. The makers of Brahmastra had taken all the necessary permissions from the commissioner of police, but it had to be canceled as all the police personnel were busy and were deployed on Ganpati duty.”
Jr NTR, who was the special guest of the evening, also tried to pacify fans, “I would like to apologize to all my fans and the national media who were very excited to watch the event.”
Telugu actor Nagarjuna also plays a vital role in the Ranbir-Alia-led film. Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy, with a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan. The film is slated to release on September 9.
