MUMBAI: Director Ayan Mukerji is all excited for one of his most ambitious project "Brahmastra" and hopes the film becomes "the biggest success of his career as well as of the film industry".

Ayan is rather close-lipped on anymore information about his "dream project. "I will not be able to give information right now but all I can say is, this film is a modern day film." 

"It is set in India as it exists today but the name of the film is called 'Brahmastra' because the energy, wisdom and powers in the film come from ancient India. 

"As far as costumes are concerned, there are some which may not be the way you would expect them to be".

"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." 

The cast -- Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt -- all come together "because of the story and theme of the film", Ayan said, speaking at the opening ceremony of the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival on Thursday here.
