Kangana Ranaut, who often remains in controversy over her remarks, has come with yet another allegation stating director Ayan Mukerji changed the title of Brahmastra Part I from Jalaluddin Rumi to Shiva after seeing the immense success of Baahubali, in which Prabhas plays Shivudu’ character.
The recently released Brahmastra has received applause from moviegoers, especially the VFXs and chemistry between Ranbir and Alia. It also stars Shah Rukh Khan in a cameo appearance as Bhargav, a NASA employee.
Kangana stated that Ayan “burnt Rs 600 crores to ashes” and tried to “exploit” religious sentiments of the viewers. “Everyone who called @ayan mukerji a genius should be jailed immediately… he took 12 years to make this film, he replaced 14 DOP’s he shot for more than 400 days for this film and changed 85 AD’s and burnt 600 crores to ashes… Also tried to exploit religious sentiments by changing the film name from Jalaluddin Rumi to Shiva last minute, because of Bahubali success… Such opportunists, such creativity deprived people, success starved greedy people if called geniuses then it’s not manipulation but a well thought of strategy to call din ko raat and raat ko din…,” said Kangana on her Instagram story, whose account was deactivated by Twitter months ago.
She claimed Karan bought reviews and “fake box office collections” and said, “People like Karan Johar should be questioned for their conduct, he is more interested in everyone’s sex life than in his films scripts, he self admittedly buys reviews, stars and fake collection numbers and tickets… this time around he tried to ride Hinduism and south wave… all turned Pujaris suddenly and begged south actors, writers and directors to promote their film… they will do everything but not hire competent writer, director, actors and other talent… why not in the first place hire those they went begging to fix this disaster called Brahmastra.”
Let us take a look at some of the Netizens’ tweets after Brahmastra’s opening day
#Brahmastra is a superb movie with best visual effects, 2nd half was too good.
Ranbir Kapoor and every other actors performed so well and Cameo of SHAH RUKH KHAN As Vanarastra was cherry on Top ❤
Loved it, Can’t wait for Part 2.

After a very very long time, saw long queues for a bollywood movie. I must say, it was worth it. Brilliant direction by Ayan. Sure to end dry spell.#Brahmastra
