Adipurush Controversy: The controversy over Bahubali fame Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan starrer film 'Adipurush' is increasing continuously. Since the launch of the teaser of the film in Ayodhya, all kinds of reactions are coming on it. Now Bhishma Pitamah of Mahabharata i.e. Mukesh Khanna has also given his reaction on the teaser of the film. Furious at the filmmakers, he said that from where this film is looking like Ramayana. He has given it a completely Mughal form.

'Lag Rahi Mughaliya Era Movie'

Sharing the video on his YouTube channel, Mukesh Khanna said, "The ones playing the role of Ram in the film neither look like Ram nor do Hanuman look like Hanuman. Ravana also does not look like Ravana. Where is this Ramayana coming from? This is looking like a movie from the Mughal period. It is clear that you are making fun of our religion. At a time when films are being boycotted everywhere, you are again creating a new controversy. In such a situation people will catch you. Then you will also defend it by calling it freedom of expression.

'Envelope aisa toh how will the film be'

Mukesh Khanna said, 'Every Indian has a special perception about Ramayana. People believe that Lord Shri Ram did not keep a mustache. Hanuman was also without a beard and mustache. Ravana only had a big mustache. But in this film (Adipurush Movie), Bahubali was made Ram and Saif Ali Khan was made Ravana. You may be investing 450 crores in this film, but if people give their trust in you then you will be nowhere. Lashing out at the film makers, the actor said, 'Now you will say that this is a teaser. If this is the envelope above, then how will the film be.'

'If you have the courage, then show it by saying on your religion'

Furious at Saif Ali Khan, Mukesh Khanna said, 'Saif Ali Khan said before playing the role of Ravana that I want to give it a form of humour. I had given my reaction on this at that time. You talk about Ramayana but in reality you want to take advantage of Ramayana. Who are you to make fun of our religion? If you have the courage, then show it by saying something on your religion.

'A film cannot be made only with special effects'

The actor cautioned the film makers and said, 'In this film (Adipurush Movie), Ram is shown in a mustache. Looks like Ravana Khilji. To tell the truth, it has been given a Mughal form. Where is the Ramayana, where is the Mughal form. are you kidding? I don't know how much people will accept it. Ramayana and Mahabharata cannot be made only with special effects. You cannot call it Ramayana by giving the look of Hollywood's Avatar film. If you try to do this, people will automatically react.
