The pre-release event of the highly anticipated film Adipurush was held in Tirupathi with great enthusiasm and fanfare. Chinna Jeeyar Swami attended the event as the chief guest. The entire film’s main cast graced the event, except for Saif Ali Khan, who portrays the character of Lankesh. This absence has sparked speculation among fans and industry insiders, prompting discussions about its reasons.
One possible explanation for Saif Ali Khan’s absence could be a strategic move by the film’s team to downplay the character of Lankesh. Given the sensitive nature of the character and the potential for negative backlash or criticism, the team may have chosen to limit Lankesh’s promotion during the pre-release event. By keeping Saif Ali Khan away, they might have aimed to prevent any unforeseen controversies surrounding the character.
However, a section of fans and enthusiasts expressed their disappointment at Saif Ali Khan’s absence. They believe his presence at the event could have been a momentous occasion, marking his debut in the Telugu film industry. With his recent signing of the highly anticipated film NTR30 titled Devara, fans hoped to witness his active participation in promoting Adipurush in Telugu and North Indian markets.
While Saif Ali Khan’s absence at the pre-release event has raised questions, it remains to be seen whether he will be actively involved in the film’s promotional activities, particularly in the North Indian region, where he enjoys a significant fan base.
Adipurush, directed by Om Raut, promises to be an epic cinematic experience, bringing to life a beloved tale from Indian mythology. Starring Prabhas in the lead role of Lord Sriram and featuring Kriti Sanon as Janaki, the film has already garnered immense attention and anticipation. The pre-release event itself was a testament to the grand scale and magnitude of the project, with the entire cast and crew present to celebrate this milestone.
As the film’s release date approaches, fans eagerly await its arrival in theaters, hoping for a cinematic spectacle that lives up to their expectations. Adipurush will hit the screens on the 16th of this month.
