In my work, in my life, in my career, and definitely in Brahmāstra and its journey ahead.”
On putting the ensemble for the fantasy epic, the director added, “When we started writing the characters, I was very clear about who they were and what I wanted them to represent. And I got very lucky, that some of the best talent in the country – not only liked those characters but supported the overall vision of the project and what we are trying to create. I am very grateful to the entire cast for that support. It has made Brahmāstra what it is today.”
