The troubles for Adipurush do not seem to be ending anytime soon. This Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon-starrer has been making it to the headlines from the moment it was announced. As the movie teaser was released, the cast, story, as well as makers, were trolled and now the film has even landed in legal trouble.
While a large section of the audience is upset with the ‘poor VFX’, others claimed that Hindu Gods have been misrepresented in the teaser.
However, amid all allegations, a plea has been filed seeking a permanent and mandatory ban against ‘Adipurush’ producer Bhushan Kumar and director Om Raut.
The notice sent to the Adipurush team claims that the makers have insulted the Hindu religion. It also stated that the ‘role of presenting real characters of Ramayana as Islamisation’ and the ‘obscene expressions given by them have also been described as a controversial act’.
Furthermore, the legal notice also claimed that Adipurush filmmakers and artists have damaged the cultural value of the original character of the Hindu scripture Ramayana. Lord Ram’s image has been tampered with in the teaser of the movie Adipurush with real characters from Ramayana.
The legal notice was sent through advocate Ashish Rai.
Now, in a recent interview with Times Now, the lawyer was asked to elaborate more about the same. To which he said that “The way Indian Hindu civilisation has been made fun of by the producer and artist of Adipurush movie, it is definitely condemnable. Scriptures like Ramayana have a special focus on Hinduism. The manner in which the characters of the Hindu religion Ramayana have been tampered with in the movie Adipurush.”
“Due to this, Hindu civilization and religious Ramayana are being insulted. Therefore, keeping these important points in mind, a legal notice has been sent by NCWU to stop the promotion of the Adipurush movie immediately. If this mistake is not rectified in future, appropriate concrete criminal legal action will be taken against the producer and cast of Adipurush,” he added.
Amid all the allegations, the makers are yet to react to the notice and fans are eagerly waiting for their response to the same.
Adipurush is scheduled to be released on January 12, 2023, in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. Prabhas is playing the role of Lord Ram, while Saif Ali Khan is essaying the role of Raavan aka Lankesh. Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh are playing the roles of Sita and Lakshman respectively.
