Director Ayan Mukerji released a statement clarifying a scene in his upcoming film Brahmastra, where actor Ranbir Kapoor wears shoes as he rings a bell. In the Brahmastra trailer, released on Wednesday, Ranbir was seen running towards a decorated venue, outside which was written ‘Dussehra Mahotsav’. Also seen were a string of bells hung above the entrance door, as he rings one of them before entering the venue.

On Sunday, Ayan announced the trailer of Brahmastra on ‘4K’ on Instagram and penned a long note. He also shared a poster of the film featuring Ranbir. He captioned the post, “4K! Trailer in 4K. A better resolution is, of course, the better way to see these images we worked so hard to create! So though delayed – here it is!
Ayan also wrote, “2) We had some people in our community, upset because of one shot in our Trailer – Ranbir’s character wearing shoes as he rings a bell. As the creator of this film (and a devotee), I wanted to humbly. Address what happened here. In our movie, Ranbir is not entering a temple, but a Durga Puja Pandal. My own family has been organizing a similar kind of Durga Puja Celebration for… 75 years! One, which I have been a part of since my childhood, “he added.
“In my experience, we just take off our shoes, right on the stage where the Goddess is, and not when you enter the Pandal. It’s personally important for me to reach out to anyone who may have been upset with this image … because Above all, Brahmāstra is created as a movie experience that pays respect and celebrates – Indian culture, traditions and history. Okay, that ‘s all! Happy Sunday from rainy Mumbai! #brahmastra, “Ayan wrote as he concluded his post.
Brahmastra features Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in the lead roles. Ranbir and Alia will be seen together for the first time in a movie. The film is ready to hit the theaters on September 9, 2022, in 2D and 3D.
