In the midst of the fervent anticipation surrounding the release of Adipurush, a rumor began circulating on social media, alleging that the movie discriminates against Dalits and that they would be denied access to watch the film. This shocking claim not only surprised movie enthusiasts but also caught the attention of the hardworking team behind Adipurush, who had already strived to overcome any negativity surrounding the film since its teaser was released last year. Despite the recent positive response to the film’s promotions, including trailers and songs, false rumors of discrimination threatened to cast a shadow over the project.
However, the makers of Adipurush swiftly and strongly dismissed these baseless allegations. Clarifying their stance, the team issued a statement to counter the misinformation, emphasizing their unwavering commitment to equality. They declared, “The statements made in relation to #Adipurush are false and misleading! Team Adipurush firmly stands for Equality, emphasizing no discrimination based on caste, color, or creed. We urge everyone to help us combat this falsehood by reporting it whenever encountered! #PrathiBhaaratheeyudidhiAdipurush #GoodOverEvil.”
