Last month, Om Raut and Bhushan Kumar announced their next magnum opus - Adipurush, which will be a modern day retelling of the Ramayana. Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan have been locked on for the film to play the main protagonist and the antagonist. Now, we hear that post Covid, this will be the biggest Indian film to be produced. 

When we spoke to Om Raut, he tells us, "I had done a research on this in the past. The lockdown was a blessing in disguise for me. As a writer, I could be in my place and plan this whole project. There was this script that I had on my mind and that's how Adipurush happened. I had written one draft years ago but we changed a lot of things when we revisited the idea now." After the super success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, people are looking forward to Adipurush which also promises to be a visual spectacle. "The idea is to bring a technique that has never been used in films before. I love making it look grand and visually stunning. Plus, Prabhas is the biggest superstar we have in entire India right now. So when we told him about the film, he was very happy and interested. I couldn't have asked for a better hero."

Prabhas' last few films have anyway been mounted on a gigantic scale, especially after the blockbuster Baahubali series. But Adipurush will in all probability be his biggest film post Baahubali. A source tells us, "While many are slashing down budgets and cost of production, Om and Bhushan are dreaming big with Adipurush. It will be the biggest Indian film to release in theatres post Covid-19. It will have a lot of VFX work involved and a technique never seen before in Indian films. They are planning to mount it on a lavish scale and a whopping budget of Rs 350-400 crore is set just for the shoot and production of Adipurush." We tried reaching out to T-Series but they chose not to respond to the text.

What’s the point of seeing so-called “Hindu films” made by anti-Hindu forces who deny Hindu and Indian history in the first place?? Don’t forget what short-elf Saif said about India after Tanhaji became a hit! Changed his tune in an instant and said “Bharat didn’t exist before the British”... No thanks! I’m not going to help line these gadars’ pockets. Check out the Ramayana anime-version made by a famous Japanese studio (can be found on YouTube) or watch the 80’s series instead. This stupid movie will be boycotted. It’s their karma. If it was up to BollyDawood they would depict Sita Ma doing an item number! Disgusting.

So casting short-elf Saif...the same idiot who said that India didn’t exist before the British “brought us together” is being cast in a film on one of the holiest books in Hinduism which is tied to our land‘s history itself!? Even the Japanese have more respect for us! In the 90s a Japanese anime studio made a beautiful version of the Ramayana in and in a very tasteful manner too (no short blouses on Sita Ma, like I’m sure these Bollywood idiots will try to show). The anime is available on YouTube by the way if anyone is interested. Anyways, Bollywood seems to have realized that the Indian majority are sick of our religion being degraded by these nachne wale. So now they’ve started making films like Tanhaji and on Ramayana to make money but they are the SAME ones tweeting nonsense against Ram Mandir. Well Indians and Hindus abroad too, are not stupid. We have finally woken up. No more taking advantage of our sentiments. Boycotting all this nonsense. What’s the point of seeing “Hindu” films made by anti-Hindu forces who deny Hindu and Indian history in the first place??

How can they cast Saif for Ravanna’s role?Dint they find a better person to play the part?The fake sikular nawab would end up saying Ramayana never happened and that there was no concept of Rama until British came!And his pouty biwi would add”We did not force you to watch oyr movies,mat jhao na theatre!

Dude it's not possible because She is busy write now. Currently she is shooting for Matrix 4 and then probably from January She will be shooting for Citadel which takes 5 months to complete, then she will be doing A film with Mindy Kaling which takes around 2-2.5 months and then She will be shooting for Sheela- A Biopic on Ma Anand Sheela directed by Oscar winning Director Barry Levinson which takes around 4-4.5 months this completing entire 2021. She can't do any Hindi movie in 2021. She will definitely do 1 or 2 Hindi movies in 2022. Whereas Adipurush shooting starts from 2021 January to May or June. And it will release in 2022 because VFX and Post Production will always takes time..
