Prabhas’ Adipurush release postponed
After the scathing response to its teaser, the makers of ‘Adipurush’ have decided to postpone the film’s release from January 12, 2023 to June 16. The multilingual mega budget film directed by Om Raut stars Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan as the leads. It is the retelling of Indian epic, Ramayana. While Prabhas plays the role of Lord Ram, Saif Ali Khan essays the antagonist role named as Lankesh, who is actually Raavan from the mythological epic.
The film’s teaser, which got released last month, was slammed mercilessly by netizens. The teaser came as a huge surprise as not many knew that the makers were attempting a live action film. Ever since its release, social media users have been on a rampage trolling the the shoddy VFX works that resemble cartoons. The makers have now been forced to rework all the VFX, which has now resulted in the postponing of release.
‘Adipurush’, which also stars Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh, is planned to be released in 3D format in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada languages.T Series and Retrophiles production are jointly producing it.
