Actor Ranbir Kapoor said that he acted in Brahmastra without getting paid. This was said in a media interview. Director Ayan Mukerji has also admitted this. The director said that Ranbir made the film after making many sacrifices and did not get paid.
‘The truth is that the film was made with a lot of personal sacrifice. Ranbir is not paid as a star. This is a big deal. Because otherwise this film would not have been made.
Alia was also given a very small reward. It was 2014 when Alia became a part of the film. There was no stardom like today. The director added that the reward was very small.
In the interview, Ranbir also clarified the reason for giving up the reward. ‘You asked whether I charged anything or not. Actually I did. This is the stake for life for me and I am also the producer of the film. No remuneration was charged for the first part. But my belief in the amount of money that the film will make in three parts is beyond anything I can get as an actor’; Ranbir said.
