Adipurush: Hindu Mahasabha furious over Saif Ali Khan’s look ‘not a tilak on his forehead, like terrorist Khilji’

The teaser of ‘Adipurush’ starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles was released on Sunday. Film makers are being trolled for the teaser. Social media users are sharing a lot of memes on its VFX. With the arrival of the teaser, its criticism has also started. The controversy surrounding Saif Ali Khan’s look of Ravana seems to be increasing. Now Hindu Mahasabha and BJP have also joined this whole controversy.

Messing with mythological characters is not tolerated.

The story of Adipurush is based on Ramayana. Saif Ali Khan is playing the role of Ravana in the film. Swami Chakrapani Maharaj, the national president of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, has expressed displeasure over Saif’s look. He said that tampering with the mythological characters of Hinduism will not be tolerated. Chakrapani Maharaj said, ‘Saif Ali Khan is portrayed in the South Indian film Aadi Purush in the role of Lankapati Ravana, an exclusive devotee of Lord Shiva, like an Islamic terrorist Khilji or Genghis Khan or Aurangzeb, neither a tilak nor a tilak on his forehead. Hi Tripund, playing with our mythological characters cannot be tolerated.

‘Turkey may be dictator’

BJP spokesperson Malvika Avinash also objected to Ravana’s look. Sharing a post, he said, ‘Ravana, a resident of Lanka, was a Shiva devotee, who had mastered 64 arts. Jai (Victory) who was protecting Vaikuntha incarnated as Ravana due to a curse. It may be Turkish dictator but Ravana is not. Bollywood should stop misrepresenting our Ramayana/history. Have you ever heard of the legendary N.T.Rama Rao?’
