In the film, Prabhas is portraying the role of Raghava, Kriti as Janaki and Saif as Lankesh, based on Lord Rama, Goddess Sita, and Ravana respectively. Earlier today, the Madhya Pradesh minister spoke to the reporters and expressed his views on wrongfully depicting Hanuman in the teaser.
According to PTI, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra told the reporters, “I have seen the trailer of Adipurush. There are objectionable scenes in it. The dresses and look of Hindu deities as seen in the trailer were not acceptable. Hanuman ji is shown wearing leather, whereas the description (in the scriptures) of the deity’s costume is different… These are scenes that hurt religious sentiments. I am writing a letter to Om Raut to remove all such scenes from the film. If not removed, we will consider legal action.”
Home Minister Narottam Mishra supported his claims by citing the original work in Hanuman Chalisa and that the film showcases a different depiction of the lord Hanuman.
Meanwhile, Adipurush is produced by T-series and happens to be one of the most expensive films made in Hindi cinema. It’ll be released on January 12, 2023, in IMAX and 3D. It will be released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada languages.
