Om Raut's Adipurush released in theatres on June 16 and broke box office records by collecting Rs. 140 crores globally on the first day. While the film created enough buzz, the audience stepped out of theatres disappointed with the language of the dialogues written by renowned writer Manoj Muntashir. Dialogues like "Kapda tere baap ka, aag tere baap ki, tel tere baap ka, jalegi bhi tere baap ki", "Mere ek sapole ne tere Sheshnag ko lamba kar diya", and "tere bua ka bageecha hai kya jo hawa khane chala aaya?" sparked controversy on social media.
Now, after gauging the audience's reaction and the outrage on social media, the makers of Adipurush have decided to alter the dialogues. Valuing inputs from the viewers, the team is reworking to ensure the dialogues in the film resonate with core essence. The modified dialogues will reflect in a couple of days.
Adipurush opened to mixed response in theatres. Headlined by Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon, Devdatta Nage and Sunny Singh, the film is produced by T-Series, Bhushan Kumar & Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, Prasad Sutar, and Rajesh Nair of Retrophiles, Pramod, and Vamsi of UV Creations.
