raut: ‘Adipurush’ shifted to June 2023, filmmaker Om Raut says he wants to provide full viewing experience for viewers

Filmmaker Om Raut announced on Monday that the release of his upcoming film “Adipurush” has been postponed until June 16, 2023, as his team needs time to present a “full visual experience” to viewers. The news comes a month after the first teaser for the big-budget film was heavily criticized on social media for the quality of the visual effects as well as its depiction of Hindu deities.

The film, starring “Baahubali” star Prabhas in the title role of Lord Ram, was set to be released on January 12, 2023.

”Adipurush” is not a movie, but a representation of our devotion to Prabhu Shri Ram and our commitment to our Sanskriti and our history.

“In order to give the full visual experience to viewers, we need to give more time to the teams working on the film. ‘Adipurush’ will now be released on June 16, 2023,” Raut said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“Adipurush” is Raut’s follow-up project to his 2020 hit film “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior,” which recently won the National Award for Best Popular Film.

‘Adipurush’ is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar of T-Series, Raut, Prasad Sutar and Rajesh Nair of Retrophiles.
