Manoj Muntashir, the writer of the much-discussed movie “Adipurush,” issued an apology today for offending people’s religious sentiments with his contentious dialogues.
Taking to Twitter, Manoj Muntashir wrote, “I accept people’s emotions have been hurt by Adipurush. With folded hands, I extend my unconditional apologies. May Prabhu Bajrang Bali keep us united and grant us strength to serve our sacred Sanatan and our great nation.”
His post received a range of responses from internet users, many of whom believed that it was too late to request an apology.
You can’t apologise now, said a user on social media.
Another person commented, “Badi jaldi Maafi maang liye sahab But thik hai, Der aaye durust aaye.”
The epic Ramayana adaption “Adipurush,” which was directed by Om Raut, has received harsh criticism since it was released. In the movie, Saif Ali Khan plays Ravana, while Sunny Singh plays Laxman and Prabhas plays Lord Ram. Kriti plays Goddess Sita.
Many reviewers and critics expressed dissatisfaction with specific dialogues in the movie. ‘Marega Bete’, ‘Bua Ka Bagicha Hain Kya’, and ‘Jalegi Tere Baap Ki’ are a few of the dialogues for which the producers have received criticism.
After receiving such criticism, the writers of “Adipurush” revised the dialogues.
Manoj had asked for protection amid the argument, claiming that his life was in danger. The Mumbai Police have said they are looking into the case and have given him security.
The producer, director, and writer of the movie should be charged, the All India Cine Workers Association demanded in a letter to Mumbai Police and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
In fact, as unsatisfied viewers compared the 1987 Ramayan to the blockbuster show, the criticism and controversy surrounding Adipurush propelled the movie back to small screens.
