‘Ramayana’ inspired ‘Adipurush’ hits cinemas worldwide

Dubbed one of the most anticipated cinematic releases of recent months, ‘Adipurush’ starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan hits theatres worldwide on June 16.

To mark the release, producers behind the mega production released a few fun facts about the characters to pique audience interest.

  • The film was made on a huge budget of Rs 500 crores, with Prabhas’ fees reportedly being Rs 100 crores, making it one of the most expensive Indian films to be made.

  • The film’s divine track ‘Jai Shri Ram’ quickly became the most viewed video on various platforms within a mere 24 hours.

  • While ‘Adipurush’ translates in English as ‘the first man’, Om Raut interprets it as ‘the     best man’ in the context of the film.

  • Adipurush’ has extensively used “motion capture technology” that has been previously used in films like ‘Avatar’.

  • Om Raut who collaborates with Bhushan Kumar after the blockbuster success of Tanhaji was fascinated with the 1992 Japanese film ‘Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Ram’, which gave him the idea to adapt the epic Ramayana for the big screen using modern technology.

In the film, Prabhas will play Raghav, which is another name for Lord Ram. Om Raut, changed the names of the characters because he thinks "calling the lead character Ram makes him automatically divine in the eyes of the audience, whereas naming him Raghav makes him human and approachable".

Kriti Sanon plays Janaki, which is another name for Goddess Sita. At the final trailer premiere event in Tirupati, Kriti spoke about her character: "A character that very rare actors get to do in their whole career and I was able to do it in just nine years because of your prayers, blessings and love that I am here with you today. So, thank you for all the love."
