New Delhi: 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. And now, 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.

Om added that even that version of Ramayan had its version of “modern technology” that impressed the audience. “When we saw that, it had a lot of modern technology. One arrow comes, 10 come out of it, then 100 come out of it. We had never seen all of this. This was very new for all of us. We didn’t know about it. It was very popular in those days,” he said. Om seemed to be implying that his film is keeping up with the times and introducing newer technology.

“Ravan is a demon. He was a cruel being so he was given a big mustache, and they showed him as a demon in those times. It was their artistic representation of what a demon would look like. Our Ravan is demonic in today’s times,” he said. “In today’s times, in my artistic opinion, a demon could look like this,” he added.

When asked if he would make any changes in the film based on the backlash that the teaser received, he said, “We need everyone’s blessings. Because this is not a film, we are not treating this like a film, this is a mission for us. Adipurush is a symbol of our devotion. So whatever people are saying, they are all our elders, we are noting everything down. When you see the film, when it releases in January, no one will be disappointed.”
