Ever
since
the
teaser
of
Om
Raut’s
magnum
opus

Adipurush

dropped
online,
the
controversies
surrounding
this
Prabhas-Saif
Ali
Khan
just
refuse
to
die
down.
In
the
latest
turn
of
events,
a
plea
has
been
filed
in
a
New
Delhi
Court
seeking
a
stay
on
the
release
of
the
film,
stated
a
report
in
PTI.

The
plea
has
been
filed
by
advocate
Raj
Gaurav
against
producer
Bhushan
Kumar
and
director
and
co-producer
Om
Raut.
In
his
complaint,
Gaurav
alleged
that
the
defendants
had
manipulated
the
basics
of
the
Hindu
epic
Ramayana.

“The
defendants
have
hurt
the
religious,
cultural,
historical
and
civilizational
sentiments
of
the
plaintiff
and
other
Hindus
by
depiction
of
Hindu
gods
Lord
Ram
and
Lord
Hanuman
in
a
very
unwarranted
and
inaccurate
way
in
the
teaser
or
promotional
video
of
their
upcoming
movie
Adipurush,” the
plea
read.

The
applicant
alleged
that
while
the
traditional
picture
of
Lord
Ram
was
that
of
a
serene
and
calm
person,
who
believed
in
forgiveness,
the
makers
in
their
promotional
video
have
showed
him
as
“atrocious,
revengeful
and
angry”.
He
also
objected
to
Prabhas’
character
wearing
a
leather
strap
and
modern
footwear
made
of
leather.

In
his
plea,
Gaurav
further
alleged
that
Lord
Hanuman
was
depicted
in
an
“atrocious
manner”,
wearing
leather
straps
all
over
his
body
and
his
appearance
was
against
the
description
in
the
religious
verse
of
Hanuman
Chalisa.

The
plea
stated
that
the
character
of
Ravan,
a
staunch
Brahman,
was
“awfully
cheap
and
appalling”,
while
the
vanar
sena
was
shown
as
a
“whoop
of
chimpanzees.”

“That
prima
facie
the
teaser
or
promo
of
the
movie
is
so
atrocious
wicked
and
diabolical
that
it
along
with
the
pursuant
movie
which
is
to
be
released
on
January
12,
2023,
should
be
outrightly
banned
in
its
present
form
in
the
interest
of
religious
feelings,
sentiments
and
aspirations
of
Hindus
of
India
and
elsewhere,” the
plea
said.

The
plea
urged
the
court
to
grant
ex
parte
and
ad
interim
stay
of
the
movie
in
its
present
form
along
with
a
permanent
injunction
restraining
the
defendants
from
depicting
Lord
Ram
and
Lord
Hanuman
as
shown
in
the
promotional
video
(teaser).
Further,
it
also
sought
directions
mandating
the
defendants
to
remove
the
promotional
video
of

Adipurush

from
all
social
media
platforms.

The
matter
has
been
listed
for
hearing
on
Monday
(October
10,
2022)
before
senior
civil
judge
Abhishek
Kumar
of
Tees
Hazari
court.

Upon
its
release,
the
teaser
of

Adipurush

was
heavily
criticised
for
its
poor
VFX.
Speaking
about
the
epic
film,
it
features
Prabhas,
Saif
Ali
Khan,
Kriti
Sanon
and
Sunny
Singh
in
pivotal
roles.
