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.
Adipurush Movie Makers
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.
Adipurush 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.
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.
Adipurush Release Date
Adipurush was scheduled to premiere in theatres on August 11, 2022, in Telugu and Hindi as well as its dubbed versions in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Other Indian, and International languages. However, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadha destroyed the release date.
Since the producers took the response to the teaser seriously and are working on the VFX for it, the film is now now out of the running for Sankranti 2023.
According to the filmmaker Om Raut, “16 June 2023” will be released on that date:

The holiday season is now especially memorable for Darling Prabhas’s followers. The teaser is a visual feast, but both critics and fans have had conflicting reactions to it:
आ रहा हूँ,
अधर्म का विध्वंस करने 🏹
