AICWA protest on Adipurush

The AICWA believes that the portrayal of Lord Ram and Hanuman in the movie hurts the sentiment of millions of Hindus around the world. The movie, which is said to be based on the epic Ramayana, has set aside the religious sentiments of millions in its narrative.

One of the actors who had played the lead role in the TV series Mahabharata, Mukesh Khanna said, “You know who had to manage the T-Series who himself used to feature and shoot the Bhajans which was the forte of T-Series. Now, his son producing ‘Ramayana’ like this. Does he honing his father’s reputation or damaging it? If the people of the country don’t stop this, then I’ll think that 100 crore Hindus have not awakened yet.”He accused Om Raut of drawing inspiration from Hollywood filmmaking and injecting the Ramayana with unnecessary elements.

Protest gathering for Adipurush

Quite a few actors and film personalities apart from AICWA have targeted the director of the movie, Om Raut and the script writer Manoj Muntashir Shukla, citing improper portrayal of the characters in the movie. In the video, Khanna stated that Adipurush was a major disservice to the revered Ramayana. He accused Om Raut of lacking knowledge about the epic and criticized “intellectual” Manoj Muntashir Shukla for transforming the sacred tale into “Kalyugi Ramayana”.

The latest movie has been one of the most expensive in the history of Indian Cinema with a budget of Rs. 500 crores and has released last week in India. The movie stars Prabhas in the lead role along with Kriti Sanon as Sita and Saif Ali Khan as Raavan.
