‘Adipurush’ row: Mukesh Khanna says 'Hindu Gods aren't handsome like Schwarzenegger, they are beautiful'

‘Look at Ram or Krishna for example. They are not bodybuilders, they have a soft, docile, and grand look on their faces,' said Mukesh Khanna.

The teaser of Prabhas’ ‘Adipurush’ has been making headlines over the last few days and it’s not for the right reasons. Many have expressed their disappointment over the film’s CGI, VFX, and costumes. Actor Mukesh Khanna has also reacted to the recently released teaser and said that the looks of Hindu Gods in the forthcoming film are not true to what people believe.

He said Hindu Gods are not handsome like Arnold Schwarzenegger, they are beautiful.

‘Look at Ram or Krishna for example. They are not bodybuilders, they have a soft, docile, and grand look on their faces. No one can claim they met Ram or Krishna, but from whatever we have seen over the years, they have a feminine look. People who worship them never think of Ram or Hanuman with moustaches,’ he said.

He added that the film will not work as the makers want to use the faith audience has in Ramayan, but also wants to challenge it.

‘You call the film Adipurush, you may tell me that it is the story of a man from the stone Age. Why do you have the title of Ramayan then? We had a huge beard for Bheeshma Pitamah (Mukesh Khanna's role in Mahabharat), you cannot simply show him as a clean-shaven man. Let me tell you that such a film will not work, because you want to use the faith that the audience has in Ramayan but you also challenge the faith,’ he said.

Mukesh further claimed that huge investments and major VFX cannot make a good film. He said makers cannot use looks from ‘Avatar’ and say they are making ‘Ramayan’. He also warned rich people to not use the money to change rituals, religion, or epics.

'Adipurush' stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan. It will release in theatres in January 2023.
