In an unexpected twist, the release of Om Raut‘s much-awaited mythological epic drama, Adipurush, faced a hurdle in Nepal when the Nepal Censor Board objected to a dialogue stating that Goddess Sita was India’s daughter, asserting that she was actually born in Nepal. However, in a recent development, the board has granted permission for the film’s screening in Nepal after the makers of Adipurush took the decision to remove the controversial dialogue. The film is set to release worldwide on June 16.
Initially, journalist Rahul Raut took to Twitter to inform audiences about the Nepal government’s objection to the dialogue and the subsequent decision by the Censor Board to withhold the film’s release until the error was rectified. However, in a subsequent tweet, he shared an update stating that the Nepal censor board has now passed the film after the contentious dialogue claiming “Sita is India’s daughter” was eliminated. Nonetheless, there is a possibility of some backlash in Kathmandu upon the film’s release.
Directed by Om Raut, Adipurush features a stellar cast including Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan, Devdatta Nage, and Sunny Singh in pivotal roles. The film serves as a modern retelling of the revered Indian epic, Ramayana.
This development regarding Adipurush’s clearance for release in Nepal highlights the significance of cultural sensitivity and the respect given to religious sentiments. The decision to modify the dialogue showcases the willingness of the film’s makers to address concerns and maintain harmony. As audiences eagerly anticipate the worldwide release of Adipurush, it will be interesting to witness the impact of this mythological extravaganza that brings together exceptional talent and offers a fresh perspective on a timeless tale.
Stay tuned for further updates and reactions surrounding Adipurush as it takes audiences on an immersive cinematic journey, delving into the rich tapestry of Indian mythology.
