Adipurush Release Date, Star Cast, Budget, Production, Trailer

The next Om Raut film Magnum Opus Adipurush, starring Pan India star Prabhas, is set to open in theatres this year. It is Raut’s second Bollywood movie to be directed, following the Ajay Devgn-starring smash Tanhaji from 2020.

As this high-profile 3D bilingual movie was shot in both Hindi and Telugu, it also served as Raut’s debut Telugu feature. Adipurush began filming in February 2021 and finished in 103 days on November 2021.

Movie Producer and Director

Adipurush is Prabhas’ third collaboration with producer Bhushan Kumar following Radhe Shyam and Saaho, and it is sponsored by him along with Krishan Kumar, Om Raut, and Prasad Sutar, and Rajesh Nair.

The movie is produced by Bhusan Kumar’s T-Series Films in collaboration with filmmaker Raut’s own home banner Retrophiles.

Star Cast

A historical action movie with alleged Ramayana inspiration. Saif Ali Khan will play the major antagonist role of Lankesh/Ravana, opposite Prabhas in the titular role of Adipurush/Ram, and Kriti Sanon in the lead opposite Prabhas role of Janaki/Sita.

Fame for Pyaar ka Punchnama Devdatta Nage, best known for his performance in Tanhaji, will portray Hanuman; Sunny Singh will play Lakshmana, Lord Rama’s younger brother; Vatsal Sheth and Trupti Toradmal will also play significant roles.

Budget

This epic film is claimed to have cost Rs 500 crores to produce, with VFX accounting for half of that sum (Rs 250 crores) (Visual Effects). As far as we are aware, the movie’s filming was finished in November 2021, and it is currently in post-production.

Release Date

Adipurush was supposed to be released in theatres on 12 January 2023 in Telugu and Hindi as well as its dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Other Indian, and International languages. However, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadha destroyed that date, therefore there has been some change since then.

Now that the new release date has been confirmed by the filmmakers, director Om himself presents several Prabhas personas from this eagerly anticipated film:

The film’s distributors are AA films. On the technical side, Khathik Palani shot it, and Apurva Motiwale and Ashish Mhatre edited it. Earlier Hindi films Love Shagun (2016) and Zeenat (2018) used cinematography by Karthik, and Sachet-Parampara provided the score.
