Ayan Mukerji shares a new detail about Dev from Brahmastra

Ayan Mukerji's fantasy drama 'Brahmastra' is still having an amazing box office run after 3 weeks of its release. The film had amazing visual effects and several exciting characters played by actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna among others but one character which has become a talking point is Dev.

Dev was mentioned several times in the film as one of the antagonists and he was only displayed as a faceless silhouette. In recent media interaction, director Ayan Mukerji has revealed that he initially wanted to show Dev's face at the end of the film.

Talking about how integral Dev is to the entire saga, Ayan told Hindustan Times, "The conversation, the vision, and the actor for Part Two Dev were very developed by around 2019. There was a point at which in the middle of making Part One, we really found the time to start pursuing this whole Dev vision. The real Brahmastra story and conflict come alive in Part Two. In terms of Dev, I will go out on a limb and say he is possibly the most exciting character that I will be taking on in my career so far. I am extremely thrilled about the potential of Dev and I hope things align for us in the next three years in a way where we can be able to give you guys in our minds for this.”

Sharing his initial plans for the character, the filmmaker said, "To be honest, for a long time, we were going to end the film with even the face reveal of Dev’s character. It was with a lot of thought and a desire to create some curiosity in the minds of the audiences that we ended the film where we did.”
