Ranveer Singh on Brahmastra: "I thoroughly enjoyed the experience"
Mumbai: Bollywood star Ranveer Singh on Tuesday gave a shout-out to the team of Brahmastra Part One: Shiva and said he thoroughly enjoyed watching the big-screen spectacle. Starring Ranveer's contemporaries Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the Ayan Mukerji-directed epic fantasy movie has been a runaway success, raising over ₹ 360 crores gross at the global box office.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the 'Brahmastra' experience, the 'Astraverse'. It is a fantastic big-screen offering and something unlike anything we've seen in Hindi cinema. I truly appreciate the efforts of my friends and putting that out there," the actor, who is rumoured to be attached with the second part of Brahmastra, said.
Ranveer was speaking at a session during the inaugural day of the FICCI Frames 2022 here.
The actor, known for delivering blockbusters such as Bajirao Mastani, Simmba, and Gully Boy, believes the Indian entertainment sector has witnessed a rapid acceleration in recent years that has led to a "clear distinction" between entertainment meant for the big screen and at home.
"There is now a very clear distinction between what is meant for the big screen. With the films releasing in theatres, it's imperative to have big-screen appeal, visual spectacle, scale, something you can't really experience at home or then a community watch.
"It's not the same when you're sitting alone and watching at home on the couch... It's a completely new landscape with the rise of new verticals... Our Indian audiences are watching shows that have been created in other countries and the reverse is happening too," he added.
Talking about his acting endeavours, Ranveer said his next movie Cirkus, directed by his Simmba maker Rohit Shetty, is "quite disruptive for my own filmography".
Set to be released on this Christmas, Cirkus is based on William Shakespeare's classic play The Comedy of Errors and revolves around two sets of identical twins, who were accidentally separated at birth.
The most special moment for Ranveer during the making of the movie was when he shot with comedy legend Johnny Lever, he recalled.
