In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Divyenndu was asked about working with Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in Brahmastra. Divyenndu laughed and said, “It's fake news. I don't understand how my name is there on their Wikipedia page. Maybe for a sequel. I don't deny but not for this one."
He added, “I never had a meeting for this film and we never talked about it. I am really hoping that they don't add my name in the film's credit. People will say that ‘it's really bad that they cut your role in the film.’”
