'Adipurush' won't distort history, suggests Om Raut

Last year, Saif Ali Khan landed 'Adipurush' into a controversy by saying that the film will portray Ravana's humane side. The Bollywood actor is essaying the demon in the Prabhas film.

In his latest interview, director Om Raut has tried to placate the fears among a section of the audience by saying that 'Adipurush' will not distort history. He suggested that cinematic liberty doesn't mean that historical facts and timelines are tinkered with at will. 

With this clarification, it's clear that the director doesn't want 'Adipurush' to court any more controversies. 

The film has Prabhas in the role of Lord Rama. It is being shot in Mumbai. The pan-India 3D epic drama will hit the cinemas in the August of 2022.
