Ayan Mukerji Confirms Shah Rukh Khan’s Character Spin-Off
In conversation with the Indian Express, Ayan not only shared that Shah Rukh Khan‘s fans, but the creators have also thought about a spin-off of his character. In fact, the idea was first floated while they were filming for the series. Ayan teased that the spin-off might tell the scientist’s origin story. The actor’s role in Brahmastra has sparked several fan theories, including his return in the sequel. The fans have asked the director to put on a spin-off of Brahmastra’s Mohan Bhargav.
Asked about fans’ demands for a spin-off, including an online petition, Ayan said: “Before the fans said it, we said that ourselves. When we shot the series in 2019, we also said on sets. When we discovered the scientist’s personality, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do things. We have to do the scientist’s origin story!’”
The filmmaker added that his team also agreed with the idea that Shah Rukh Khan’s character should not be limited to a cameo in just one film. He said: “We were also vibrating on that frequency, my assistants and I. So I think my response to the spin-off question is, we’re already thinking about it. We’re hearing everything and planning our next steps. ”
