Speaking at a pre-release promotional event for the film, SS Rajamouli said, "Creating a world that Ayan has created is not easy. Ayan has created a power which still has some limits. He provided the scope to create a bigger villain and also created a scope for the struggle for good to win over evil. It's not an easy job. It's not a fairy tale but a commercial way of telling a story. But the film also says that love is the strongest of all astras. This is what I like about Brahmastra. Ayan made sure that among all the astras, including Vanara Astra, Agni Astra, Jalastra and Brahmastra – love is the strongest. Not just telling this fact in dialogues, he made sure that his point comes across. That love will win over everything."
He added, "Ayan dreamt about creating a world that we have never seen before -- the magnificent world of astras that we have learnt from our history, our puranas,as children, we heard about these astras but have never seen their splendour. That is what Ayan has dreamt. It has been a long journey from 2014. He has been ably supported by Karan Johar, Ranbir, Alia, Nagarjuna, and Amit sir. Thank you all for making me a part of this fantastic journey.
The filmmaker also said, "I gave five years of my life to Baahubali 2. Here, we have a person who gave 10 years of his life for a vision he believed in. I saw vision in Ayan's narration, and wanted to support it."
