Ayan claims that he became good friends with the Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan while working on the film Swades. Ayan’s testimony is supported by the fact that Shah Rukh Khan appeared in Swades. He also mentioned that because of his personal relationship with Shah Rukh Khan, he was able to collaborate with Karan Johar and make direct touch with him. During the course of an interview, he was asked about it and he responded as follows:

“The internship enabled me to become familiar with the celebrity Shah Rukh Khan and provided me with the much-needed confidence to text message Karan Johar in a manner that was not relayed through an intermediary. Later, we connected at a film festival that was held in Goa in 2004, and as a result, I was given the opportunity to work as an assistant to Karan Johar on the set of his film Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna.”

Ayan appeared in a cameo capacity in the Bollywood film Home Delivery, which was released in 2005. In the movie, he worked alongside such notable actors as Boman Irani and Ayesha Takia, as well as Vivek Oberoi. In the 2006 release of Karan Johar’s Hindi film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Ayan Mukerji had a role in the production as an assistant director and also appeared in a cameo. Ayan Mukerji not only served as an assistant director on the Bollywood film Wake Up Sid, which was released in 2009, but he also played an important part in the process of writing the film’s script. During the time that they were working together on the movie, he allegedly became very good friends with Ranbir Kapoor. This information comes from Ayan. Ayan has shown his appreciation to Ranbir on a number of occasions for all the help and support he gave him when he was just starting out in his profession. Ayan, when asked about it in an interview, made the following statement:

“He is now an integral part of both my creative process and my everyday life. When two people solely work with one another and do so on a consistent basis, there is a risk that they will become dependent on one another. But the fact of the matter is that there is nothing about the collaboration that makes it come off as being in any way inappropriate. It is simply adding to the depth of the films that I want to make.”

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was a Bollywood film that was released in 2013, and Ayan Mukerji was not only responsible for directing and preparing the script, but he also had a cameo appearance in the film. Ayan Mukerji made the announcement that he will be directing the mythological Bollywood blockbuster Brahmastra in 2022, some ten years after he had last helmed the production of a film. The film was titled Brahmastra. In addition to that, he mentioned that the movie will be released as part of a trilogy and that it was conceived on the basis of Hindu mythical stories. He also disclosed that Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Amitabh Bachchan will be starring in the film in their respective roles. During an interview, he remarked,

“The Brahmastra is woven with highly robust threads, each of which goes to great depths. When I was a kid, one of my favorite things to read were books about Indian culture and history. I was profoundly influenced by the gods and goddesses of our culture as a result of the many stories that my father used to tell me about them. Shiv bhagwan and Vishnu bhagwan, Ganpati ji and Hanuman ji , maa durga and maa kaali. The lives of most persons born and raised in India are naturally infused with a certain level of spiritual depth and even science related to Indian philosophy.”

When I was a young filmmaker, I found it quite enjoyable and I paid close attention to how Hollywood routinely used technology to bring their tale to life in the form of blockbuster movies.”
