Meanwhile, there were reports that ardent fans of Nagarjuna demanded a spin-off of Nagarjuna’s character in Brahmastra. They praised the actor for making the most of his screen time in the film. The actor, also known for his films like Zakhm and Khuda Gawah, said in a recent interview that he does not know whether this will happen or not but he would love to be a part of it if it materialises.

Brahmastra, the first film in the Astraverse trilogy, focuses on DJ Shiva who discovers there are supernatural factors dictating his life. He goes on to find about the existence of astras (supernatural weapons), Brahmansh (a group of individuals who wield these astras), the most powerful astra Brahmastra and the battle to control it. The film, mounted on a budget of around Rs 450 crore, also stars Amitabh Bachchan (Guru), Mouni Roy (Junoon), Nagarjuna Akkineni (Anish Shetty) and Shah Rukh Khan (Mohan Bhargava) in significant roles.
