Many believe that 'Adipurush' is being made to cash in on the growing Hindutva-inspired religious and ethnic sentiment in India. No less a politician than KT Rama Rao of the TRS recently commented that 'Adipurush' is one of the "BJP propaganda movies" in the making. Leaving aside the political narratives, both genuine and ingenuine ones, it seems the pan-India film is surely getting its Hindutva momentum going.
Today, reports are strongly emerging that the 'Radhe Shyam' actor Prabhas and the team of the epic 3D mythological movie are going to be in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh on October 2 to unveil the film's teaser in a big way. The association of Ayodhya with the political and cultural nationalistic history of India is well-known.
The choice of Ayodhya, where a grand Ram Temple is being built, builds an aura around the film.
'Adipurush', directed by Om Raut, will hit the cinemas on January 12, 2023.
