Has the release of Adipurush been delayed by the makers? Recently, social media has been abuzz with rumors that Prabhas and Kriti Sanon the mythological action starrer, whose trailer was launched on October 2 at Ayodhya, will skip the earlier locked release date of January 12, 2023 and will now hit the big screens at a later date. This news, if true, will be a disappointment for Prabhas fans as they have been eagerly waiting for the release of the film. The film features Prabhas as Lord Ram. Adipurush is a modern adaptation of the Ramayana.
Prabhas starrer Adipurush has opted out of the Sankranthi 2023 race
Adipurush was slated to release on the occasion of Sankranthi on January 12 next year. However, if reports are to be believed, the theatrical release has been pushed to summer 2023. The exact release date has not been confirmed yet, nor has the makers made any official statement in this regard. However, going by the buzz on social media, the Prabhas starrer has indeed been postponed and the makers will release an official statement this week itself.
Sankranthi release date is locked
Sankranthi has always been a favorite among producers and next year too many big releases are slated to debut in theaters on the festive occasion. The makers of Vijay starrer Varis recently confirmed that the film will release on Sankranthi as they released a new poster of the upcoming action flick.
Other big films releasing on Sankranthi 2023 are Chiranjeevi and RaviTej’s untitled Mega 154 and Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Veera Simha Reddy.
Adipurush teaser reaction
Earlier, when the teaser of Adipurush was launched, many fans were disappointed with the film’s VFX and compared it to an ‘animated film’. Director Om Raut also responded to the trolling that the first shots of the film received. Apart from this, the clothes and looks of the Hindu deities were also criticized as seen in the trailer. Om said he is “disheartened” by the response to the Adipurush teaser. “I was disappointed but not surprised because the film is made for a bigger medium. You can cut it to some extent but you can’t take it to mobile, that’s an environment I can’t control,” he said. .
