When the teaser of 'Adipurush' was flooded with negative reports in the first week of October, Prabhas tried to do damage control. He personally promoted the teaser by attending the screenings of its 3D version. In Hyderabad, he requested ace producer Dil Raju to praise the teaser and the film. Screenings were held for fans as well.
At that time, the makers were planning to release the film on January 12, 2023. The new date is June 16, as we all know. The film has been postponed to busy some time in order to upgrade the visual quality of the mythological drama.
The decision contradicts what Prabhas and director Om Raut were saying after the teaser was out in October. They were confident that the film's big-screen avatar will blow away the audience's minds. Then why does the film need an upgrade?
In other words, the makers of 'Adipurush' have contradicted themselves. And the hungama done by Prabhas means nothing.
