After the great success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, all eyes were on filmmaker Om Raut for his next film. When he announced that his next one will be an even bigger movie called Adipurush, it was a pleasant surprise for everyone.
Based on the story of Ramayan, it stars Prabhas as Lord Ram, Saif Ali Khan as Ravana and Kriti Sanon as Sita. Produced by T-Series and Om Raut, the film is set to be one of the most expensive Indian films of all time.
Adipurush has got people talking on social media since its announcement. Now a co-producer, Bhushan Kumar has shared something that will make everyone much more excited. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, he said, “There is a devotional connection with the film. All said and done, we do Ramayan which has all the Ramayan characters and the story is the same at that time. But this is a different view of Ramayan. I can’t reveal much. The kind of realism it is made with, the kind of special effects it has, has never been seen in Indian cinema. The sequence of the war is also very realistic ”.
Bhushan Kumar also praised Om Raut and added, “Om Raut is very talented. He showed us his talent in Tanhaji. Now he’s got a head start on that in terms of VFX and everything in between. The story is iconic and you cannot compare it to any other. I can’t compare the Ramayan to any of my movies, or other industry movies, or anything. So Ramayan, with that kind of take, with that kind of cast, directing, visual effects, action sequences, and songs, I think it’s going to be a very different experience as far as theaters go. August of next year, ”he added.
Adipurush is scheduled for release on August 11, 2022.
Meanwhile, Om Raut recently won the Filmfare Award for Best Director for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
