Bollywood turned up for the opening ceremony of the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival in Mumbai, where Anurag Kashyap’s new film, Mukkabaaz, was scheduled to open the event.

Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and director Ayan Mukerji announced their ambitious new film, Brahmastra at the Film Mela, leading up to the fest. The film will also star Amitabh Bachchan and is designed as the first part of a trilogy. “It’s the biggest project of my life. All my hopes are pinned on this film. I hope it becomes the biggest success... I am very excited about the cast but I hope the film gets even bigger than the cast,” he said on the sidelines of the festival.

Before the premiere of Mukkabaaz, Anurag said he was “nervous” and thanked producer Aanand L Rai and Eros Now.

“I am dying to see how everybody reacts to it because we have tried to make the film under the radar. The one man I want to thank is Aanand Rai and Eros. They gave me total freedom to do what I wanted to do. They didn’t tell me anything, except ‘go ahead.’ I hope I don’t let my producers and exhibitors down,” he said to PTI.
