Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Sunday refused to believe that the worldwide box office collection of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’ has reached 160 crore in two days since its release on September 9.

The actor has accused the filmmakers of putting out fake numbers and said that she wants to interview co-producer Karan Johar to understand his ‘mathematics’ behind the figures. She took to her official Instagram handle and shared a series of stories about Brahmastra's box office collection.

“Released on Friday and on Sunday it's a big hit already and by the way made huge profits also. In 250 cr (that also a fake figure). 650 cr (reported to be 410 cr) budget (including VFX). Just because Prime Focus is co-producer doesn't mean VFX doesn't have any cost. Yeh Karan Johar mathematician ka maths...humko bhi seekhna hai (I also want to learn this maths by mathematician Karan Johar)," she wrote.

Kangana Ranaut further said, "This Box Office India handle has been harassing me and many like me because he is on payroll of the mafia...Today he declared Brahmastra a big hit in one day, where according to him it has only earned 65 cr so far. He did major smear campaign against Manikarnika (cost 75 cr...theatrical revenue 150 cr). He declared it a flop. Thalaivii ( 100 cr prerelease recovery) pandemic release...he declared it a disaster. Also they did major harassment on Dhaakad failure and ticket sales. What you sow is what you reap. I am here now I want to understand this mathematics. I don't do underhand conspiracies, I don't backstab. I challenge openly and righteously."

“I want to interview Karan johar and understand why is he declaring gross collection of Brahmastra and not nett collection? What is the desperation? Also after making 60 cr (that's the nett collection they have declared, I don't believe in this number but nett amount India is 60cr for two days according to them). Even if we believe them, how come 650 cr film emerged a hit already," she said in her last Instagram story.
