SINCE June 16, the day of the release of Adipurush, the Prabhas and Kriti Sanon starrer has been subjected to massive criticism and backlash on social media. Based on the mythological epic, Ramayan, the film was lambasted for its pedestrian dialogues and misrepresentation of its characters, which triggered outrage among the viewers.
Following its recent dip in its box office revenue, Adipurush dialogue writer Manoj Muntashir Shukla took to social media to apologise.
Muntashir tweeted: “I accept people’s emotions have been hurt by ‘Adipurush’. With folded hands, I extend my unconditional apologies. May Prabhu Bajrang Bali keep us united and grant us strength to serve our sacred Sanatan and our great nation.”
As expected, his apology is getting mixed responses on social media platforms.
Muntashir’s apology spread like fire on Twitter and in no time people were bashing him. Though it was accepted by some, majority of the people went overboard with the intensity of their replies.
Adipurush, which was released across the country in Hindi, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil in June, stars Prabhas as Raghav (Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita) and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Raavan).
Produced by T-Series, the big-budget multilingual saga was panned on social media over its poor VFX and colloquial dialogues, with many political parties demanding a ban on the film’s screening.
In Nepal, the film was banned over its dialogue referring to Sita as India’s daughter.
The film, reportedly mounted on a budget of Rs 500 crore, earned Rs 340 crore in first three days but the box office collections went significantly down after the opening weekend. So far, it has raised over Rs 450 crore.
