Everything you need to know about Adipurush
High on budget and heavy on VFX, Adipurush is directed by Om Raut of Tanhaji fame, and stars Kriti Sanon as Sita, Sunny Singh as Hanuman and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh, the Ravana of this epic fantasy drama. Having wrapped up shooting, the film is currently in its post-production stage.
Slated for a 3D release on January 12, 2023, the film was originally supposed to release in August this year, but was pushed to next year. But it is not just the whopping overall budget of the film that is massive about this upcoming film. Prabhas’ fees for this modern-day retelling of Ramayana is reportedly Rs 100 crore, more than even the box-office collection of most films. The film will release in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
Producer Bhushan Kumar confirmed the budget of the film in an interview to Pinkvilla. He said, “Adipurush is made on a budget of Rs 500 crore. For that film, we know that the opening will be giant with houseful board across. So, we will try to optimise the demand for the film by going ahead with blockbuster pricing. We know people will come to see it irrespective of pricing as it is a one-off it’s kind event cinema and there is only limited capacity. So, we would make sure, to go all out with this film.”
The film completed all its shooting schedules in November 2021, and the promotional campaigns will start in October 2022.
