In my experience, we only take off our shoes, right on the platform where the deity is, and not when you enter the pandal. It is important for me to personally reach out to every person who is disappointed with this scene. Because, above all, Brahmastra has been made as a film that respects Indian culture, traditions and history. This is the reason why I have made this film. That’s why it is very important for me that this feeling reaches every person who is watching Brahmastra.
