‘He is not entering a temple, but a Durga Puja Pandal,’ Ayan Mukerji addresses one of Ranbir Kapoor’s entry scene in Brahmastra | Hindi Movie News

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s ‘Brahmastra’ trailer has been the talk of the town. Fans have gone gaga about the intriguing visuals, and the elements showcased in the video. However, at the same time, the trailer was subjected to criticism too, due to one of Ranbir Kapoor’s entry scene wherein the actor wore his shoes inside a temple.

Recently, Ayan, the director of the film took to his Instagram handle to clarify the same. In his justification, he wrote, “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”.

He also added, “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. In my experience, we only take off our shoes, right on the stage where the Goddess is, and not when you enter the Pandal.”

On a closing note, he wrote, “It is 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 which pays respect to, and celebrates – Indian culture, traditions, and history. That is at the heart of why I made this movie, so it is very important to me that this feeling, reaches every Indian who is watching Brahmāstra!”

Meanwhile, apart from Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the film also stars Nagarjuna, Mouni Roy, and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal roles. The film is slated to release in theatres on September 9.
