Om Raut is all set to bring the magnum opus Adipurush which will see Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan as Lord Ram and Lankesh. The film will show the victory of good over evil.
Recently, in an interview, Saif Ali Khan opened up about his character and said that Raut has tried to make Ravan humane in the film. He also said that the film will justify Ravan’s abduction of Sita.
He told a leading portal, “It’s interesting to play a demon king, less strictures in that. But we will make him humane, up the entertainment quotient, justify his abduction of Sita and the war with Ram as revenge for what was done to his sister Surpanakha by Lakshman, who cut off her nose.”
After this statement by Saif, fans have been trending #WakeUpOmRaut and #ReplaceSaifasLankesh on Twitter on Saturday.
Now, Saif Ali Khan shares clarification regarding his statement on his Adipurush character of Raavan
He said, “I’ve been made aware that one of my statements during an interview, has caused a controversy and hurt people’s sentiments. This was never my intention or meant that way. I would like to sincerely apologise to everybody and withdraw my statement. Lord Ram has always been the symbol of Righteousness & Heroism for me. Adipurush is about celebrating the victory of good over evil and the entire team is working together to present the epic without any distortions.”
