But the reaction the first teaser of the Prabhas starrer isn’t what the makers of the movie might have anticipated.

The mega budget project which is currently touted to have been produced at an expense of Rs. 400 crores has already been delayed once from the August 2022 deadline which was originally planned.

    After the release of Adipurush teaser, filmmaker Om Raut had defended the project against rampant criticism saying the movie is meant to be experienced on the big screen and mobile phones. Reports had also suggested that Prabhas, who is leading the project, is unhappy with how the teaser turned out. However, such speculations were quickly snubbed as the mega star enthusiastically took part in initial promotional events.
