During the earlier Live session mentioned, Alia was speaking about the less aggressive approach to the promotions of the film. She had then said,”We will promote the film, and we will be everywhere, but if the question you are asking is why we are not phailod everywhere, right now our focus is…” Ranbir then pointing at his wife’s baby bump had made the comment, “Well I can say somebody has phailod.” Alia was taken aback and Ranbir immediately said, ‘It’s a joke., it’s a joke.’

Brahmāstra is a new original universe inspired by deeply rooted concepts and tales from Indian history but set in the modern world, with epic storytelling of fantasy, adventure, good vs evil, love, and hope; all told using cutting-edge technology and never-seen-before visual spectacles. The story is set in modern-day India, against the premise of a secret society called the Brahmānsh; who generation after generation have protected many divine ‘Astras’ (weapons) that were created in ancient India and safe-guarded from the eyes of the world. The most powerful and the most deadly amongst these divine weapons; the Lord of all the Other Astras – named after the most powerful weapon of the Gods, the Brahmastra, is now waking up. And it threatens to completely destroy the universe we know today.
