In a heartfelt note to the media, Ayan Mukerji (director of Wake Up Sid! and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani) has let on that the sequels to his 2022 mega-earner, Brahmastra: Part 1—Shiva will be made together, and released in December 2026 and 2027 respectively!

Both the films will be released “closer together” after the current gap between …Shiva and …Dev, which will be four and a half years, he has revealed in a message to the media. Ayan has also stated that he has a definite timeline in place for the two films in his “Astraverse” as he has already titled it. The second film is named Brahmastra: Part 2—Dev as announced last year and will tell the story of Shiva (Ranbir Kapoor)’s father. Buzz then was that Deepika Padukone would play Shiva’s mother, but that is unconfirmed, though some sites went to town last year stating that she had made a shadowy cameo already in Part 1!

Stating that he has learnt that “we need a little more time to perfect the script” for both the forthcoming parts, Ayan promises bigger and more ambitious projects in these two films.

As a surprise, he lets on that the Astraverse has inspired him towards another “very special movie” to “step into and direct” that he said “challenges and terribly excites me”. With this, he says, he is opening up to all the “positive energies” of the Astraverse.

Well, well, our guess is that this one is likely to be a spin-off on the main story and will be a relative quickie that will come way before Part 2. Let us see…!

The Dharma Productions’ franchise and creation is now the third announced universe in Hindi cinema after Rohit Shetty’s Cop Universe and Dinesh Vijan’s Horror Comedy universe, while Yash Raj Films’ Spy Universe comes fourth. Dharma supremo Karan Johar is also co-producer in the Rohit Shetty cop world with Simmba and Sooryavanshi.
