Brahmastra has garnered mixed reviews from both critics and audiences. Amid the reactions, a report carried by a leading daily claimed that Brahmastra’s negative reviews led to India’s largest theater chains PVR and Inox cumulatively losing over Rs 800 crore in market capitalisation on the release day. Now, in a series of tweets PVR Pictures CEO Kamal Gianchandani has slammed these media reports for making false claims. The CEO was confused whether to call it “a lack of understanding” or an intentional move “to cast doubts.”
Calling the report “false” and “negative”, Gianchandani said, “It amazes me, the false and negative info about Brahmastra on the internet and in the media. Is it a lack of understanding or is it intentionally designed to cast doubts? Just so that we don’t miss crucial facts.” He also confirmed that PVR Cinemas did a net business of Rs. 8.18 crore for Bramhastra on day 1.

The film also has a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan, whose name is inspired by his character in Swades, which was released in 2004.
Siddharth Anand says, "Pathaan has two spectacular songs. And fortunately both are so incredible that they are potential chartbuster anthems of the year."
In the now-viral picture, one can see Ayushmann, coming out of his vehicle’s sunroof, waving at Mannat, while innumerable onlookers are capturing the moment on their cellphones.
