‘Adipurush’ row: Ayodhya Ram Temple head priest demands ban, alleges wrong portrayal of Lord Ram

The mythological drama ‘Adipurush’, starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan, will release in theatres on January 12, 2023.

‘Adipurush’ : The teaser of Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’ is facing severe backlash on social media ever since its release. Some people are targeting it for ‘poor’ CGI & VFX, while others claim that the film ‘misrepresents’ Lord Ram, Hanuman, and Ravana.

Now, Ayodhya Ram Temple's head priest has also demanded an immediate ban on the film. According to a Hindustan Times report, chief priest Satyendra Das said the film wrongly depicts Lord Ram, Hanuman, and Ravana and therefore is against their dignity. He further claimed that ‘making a film is not a crime but they should not be made to create deliberate controversies to hog the limelight’.

The teaser for Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan’s film was released in Ayodhya on October 2, following which the film landed in controversy.

Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra also claimed ‘there are objectionable scenes’ in the film, reported by Indian Express.

Uttar Pradesh deputy chief ministers Kesav Prasad Maurya and Brajesh Pathak have also slammed the makers of the film.

BJP spokesperson Malavika Avinash has also said that the makers of the film cannot misrepresent history ‘in the guise of creative liberty.’

The Vishva Hindu Parishad claims the way Lord Ram, Ravana and Lakshman have been portrayed in the film is a ‘mockery of Hinduism’ and they will not allow ‘Adipurush’ to be screened in theatres.

Adipurush, which is an adaptation of the Indian epic Ramayana, stars Prabhas as Lord Ram, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist, King Ravana, and Sunny Singh as Laxman.

The mythological drama will release in theatres on January 12, 2023.
