Adipurush to release on June 16, 2023
Earlier, Adipurush was slated to release on January 12, 2023, in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.
Adipurush sparked outrage months before its release due to its depiction of deities on film. The film’s appearance, as portrayed by Saif Ali Khan, has also been criticised by the audience.
The film’s director, Om Raut, has spoken out against the VFX and the villain’s appearance. Om told Aaj Tak that he was highly influenced by Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan and is confident that he has “done nothing wrong” with Adipurush.
“I am a big follower of Lord Ram. I have done nothing wrong in this film. We have not tampered with history, and I would call this history, our proud history. We kept the purity of this history while working on this. When I saw Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan on Doordarshan, it had a huge impact on me,” he said.
