Brahmastra has been one of the highly anticipated movies of 2020 as it features actors Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead for director Ayan Mukherjee's ambitious fantasy action project. The film was originally expected to have a Christmas 2019 release which had then been postponed to summer 2020 due to the heavy computer-generated graphics work in the post-production of the movie. According to sources, the release schedule for Brahmastra has been pushed once again as the movie is now expected to hit the theaters in the last quarter of 2020.

The reason for the delay in the schedule is reportedly the complexities in the visual effects of the film. The cast and crew of the movie have also been in the news recently as they had been filming Brahmastra in Manali and Varanasi under extreme climatic conditions. A big portion of the VFX that the filmmakers envisioned for the film will reportedly take longer than the estimated duration making it impossible to release the film in the summer of 2020.

The source also revealed that the makers of the film do not want to deliver a half-baked film to the audience and want to ensure that the audience is completely thrilled at the announcement of the film's trailer or poster. Their vision is to make the biggest film of Bollywood and hence, leave no stone unturned in any aspect of the film. An announcement of the release date of the film is reportedly expected from the makers as soon as the visual effects in the film are confirmed and finalized.
