Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra is inspired by the Himalayas and he would’ve ‘never written it’ otherwise


The idea for fantasy trilogy Brahmastra is inspired by the Himalayas, said director Ayan Mukerji. "I would never have written Brahmastra, if not for the Himalayas. It was where the idea for the movie - the entire trilogy - came to me, and no other place on earth could have inspired it," Ayan posted on Instagram.

He shared this with a photograph in which he is seen atop a peak with the snow-capped Himalayan mountains serving as the perfect backdrop, as well as the context for his post. "How do I describe what the Himalayas make me feel? I just can't, because words fall short. Their magnificence and spirituality is something I constantly keep going to, because it makes my soul better. Amongst all my travels in this world, I rate my time in the Himalayas the highest, and amongst all the things I love about India, I feel proudest that we have the Himalayas," Ayan added.


He described it as the "home of the Gods". See Ayan’s post:

Brahmastra, produced by Dharma Productions, is releasing this Christmas. Also backed by Fox Star Studios, the movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna in key roles.

The mountains have a special place in Mukerji's heart. He had shot parts of his 2013 film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in Manali, and Kashmir.
