A film with a higher budget than 'Brahmastra'

Ranbir Kapoor's film 'Brahmastra Part One: Shiva', made with a budget of Rs 400 crore, is one of the most expensive Bollywood films of all time. However, in an interview, Ranbir had said that this 400 crore budget is not just for the first film, but for the entire 'Brahmastra' trilogy. That is, according to this, the budget of 'Ramayana' is more than double that of 'Brahmastra' project.
