The
teaser
of
Prabhas-Saif
Ali
Khan’s
ambitious
film

Adipurush

which
was
unveiled
a
few
days
ago,
drew
sharp
criticism
for
its
poor
VFX
and
inauthentic
representation
of
sacred
texts.

Adipurush Director Om Raut Reacts To Netizens Comparing Ravana’s Look To Padmaavat’s Alauddin Khilji

When
the
first
sneak-peek
of
the
magnum
opus
dropped
online,
a
section
of
netizens
even
felt
that
Saif
Ali
Khan’s
character
Lankesh
(Ravana)
looked
more
like
a
character
from
the
Mughal
era.
A
few
even
compared
it
with
Ranveer
Singh’s
Alauddin
Khilji
from
Sanjay
Leela
Bhansali’s

Padmaavat
.

In
a
recent
interview
with
News18,
director
Om
Raut
reacted
to
these
comparisons.
He
also
added
that
he
was
expecting
a
positive
response
to
the
teaser.

The
filmmaker
was
quoted
as
saying,
“In
order
to
make
him
intimidating,
there
is
a
certain
visual,
a
certain
image
that
comes
to
mind,
which
we
tried
to
capture
through
our
imagination.
But
definitely,
that
has
got
nothing
to
do
with
any
Khiljis
of
the
world,
Nadir
Shahs
of
the
world,
Genghis
Khans
of
the
world,
Babars
of
the
world.
Not
at
all
remotely
is
there
a
connection
between
them.
So
in
today’s
times,
people
perceive
Alauddin
Khilji
as
a
villain.
So
it
is
very
understandable,
when
they
look
at
Ravana,
the
greatest
villain
of
all
time,
they
might
see
glimpses
of
Khilji,
they
might
see
glimpses
of
Kans
also,
they
might
see
glimpses
of
Duryodhan
also,
they
might
see
glimpses
of
Genghis
Khan
also.”

Raut
said
that
the
main
goal
for
him
is
to
present
this
film
to
the
younger
generation
of
the
audience
who
has
grown
up
watching
Marvel
movies
and
other
Hollywood
blockbusters.

Speaking
about

Adipurush
,
the
film
boosts
of
a
stellar
ensemble
cast
which
includes
Prabhas,
Saif
Ali
Khan,
Kriti
Sanon
and
Sunny
Singh.
The
film
is
slated
to
hit
the
theatrical
screens
on
January
12,
2023.
