Shah Rukh Khan as Vanarastra to get a spin-off in Brahmastra Part 2: Dev; Ayan Mukerji confirms
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra has been the talk of B-town ever since its release. The Ayan Mukerji directorial is a winner, right from the VFX to the box office numbers. But the best was Shah Rukh Khan‘s cameo as scientist Mohan Bhargav aka Vanarastra. Fans called him the ‘best part’ of the film and soon a petition requesting a spin-off based on King Khan’s character started doing the rounds. Looks like Ayan Mukerji is also of the same mind.
Ayan Mukerji has shared that not only Shah Rukh Khan fans, but the makers have also been thinking about a spin-off for SRK’s character. He further teased that the spin-off might tell the origin story of the scientist.
Speaking to Indian Express Ayan Mukerji said, “Before the fans were saying it, we were also saying that ourselves. When we were shooting the sequence in 2019, we were also saying on sets. As we discovered the personality of the scientist, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do stuff. We have to do the origins story of the scientist!’”

He further added, “My team also agreed with the idea that Shah Rukh Khan’s character should not be limited to a cameo in just one film. We were also vibing on that frequency, my assistants and I. So, I guess my response to the spin-off demand is that, already thinking about it, hearing everything and are planning our next moves.”
