Aamir Khan could not make ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ a hit. Now whenever a new film of Salman Khan will come, then it will be known what is going on in his market price. At present, among his three Khans, Shahrukh Khan seems to be at the forefront. His ‘Raees’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’ did some decent earnings, but ‘Fan’, ‘Zero’ and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ failed miserably. He hasn’t had any major hits in years. Nevertheless, the craze for him has suddenly increased for some time now.
What is the reason for this, no one can say with certainty. But his nominal role in ‘Brahmastra’ has created a ruckus. In this film, as soon as he comes on the screen, he feels like electricity running in the theatres. Many onlookers were seen standing in excitement, as if welcoming Shahrukh. Till now people were waiting for his ‘Jawan’, ‘Pathan’ and ‘Dunky’, but now it seems that the audience will be most waiting for the next part of ‘Brahmastra’ in which Shahrukh is going to play a big and influential character. . Its director Ayan Mukerji has announced it.
So in eight days of release, ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’ has crossed 300 crores all over the world. However, it will have to show ten-twelve more days just to clear its budget from the box office. But right now the money for OTT, TV and music rights is not included in this. Adding them, the earnings of this film will go far beyond its cost of 410 crores. Anyway, except Kangana Ranaut, all the concerned parties have accepted its success. That’s why director Ayan Mukerji and actor Ranbir Kapoor reached Somnath temple in Gujarat to pay their respects, although most Bollywood people have been seen going to Tirupati in such cases.
Excited by the success of the film, Ayan has started preparing for ‘Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev’ which he claims will be grander and better than the first part. The reason for this he told is that we have learned from the first part how such a film is made. They want to release the next part at the end of 2025. This will be a very important film for Shahrukh Khan as even more audience than him will be waiting for it. Overall, the situation is such as if ‘Brahmastra’ has benefited from being a hit, Shah Rukh has benefited more than Ranbir Kapoor and Alia.
