The majority have voiced their disapproval of Raavan’s appearance in the movie. The role of the movie’s primary antagonist will be played by actor Saif Ali Khan. “The way Ravana has been portrayed is wholly unacceptable and inappropriate. We urge that the movie be immediately banned through the media “At a recent event, Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, spoke to the media.
He claimed that the big-budget Ramayana adaption “Adipurush”, which was helmed by Om Raut of “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior” fame, did not depict Lord Rama and Hanuman as they are described in the epic and hence violates their dignity.
The video, according to BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj, makes fun of Hindu gods.
“In the movie, Raavan appears to be a Muslim invader, and Hanuman’s appearance has been grossly altered, which is extremely offensive. Filmmakers believe they can take any amount of artistic license. This can’t be allowed, “Soon after the teaser’s release, he said at another event.
“No one can be permitted to mislead the Hindu mythology and corrupt the image of Hindu gods and goddesses,” Ram Janmabhoomi Temple Chief Priest Mahant Satyendra Das remarked.
The preview for the movie, according to Sunil Raj of the fringe group Hindu Rashtra Sena, also paints Sita in a negative light. “She appears less like a goddess and more like a movie heroine. We won’t permit the movie to be released.” Sita is played by Kriti Sanon in “Adipurush”.
People have also voiced dissatisfaction with the film’s subpar VFX and numerous characters’ unnatural appearances, especially Saif’s Raavan. Several online users have linked Saif’s appearance in the movie to that of Alauddin Khilji rather than Raavan because the actor is sporting short spiked hair, a long beard, and kohl lined eyes.
