The new trailer for Adipurush has finally been released, and it's a major improvement from the teaser that left many questioning Saif Ali Khan's look as Lankesh. Directed by Om Raut, who previously delivered the blockbuster hit Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Adipurush promises to be another epic retelling of a classic tale.
The three-minute-long trailer follows the story of Ramayana, with Prabhas playing the role of Raghava, Kriti Sanon as Janaki, Sunny Singh as Lakshmana, and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh. The trailer starts with Lord Hanuman telling the story of Raghava, who was born human and became a God. The events of Ramayana are then shown in an impressive way, with a brief glimpse of Saif as Lankesh in the guise of a sage praying in front of a massive shivling. He is seen listening to a voice saying, “You have already acquired everything that was worthy in the universe, but you are still called a devil. Acquire Lakshmi, and you will become Lord Vishnu.”
Adipurush will be released in five different languages, including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam, and the trailer has been released in over 70 territories worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Russia, Egypt, and other places. Moreover, the film will also be screened at the Tribeca Festival in New York on June 13, and Prabhas expressed his excitement about the premiere.
"I am honored that Adipurush will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Festival, New York. It's an absolute privilege to be part of a project that mirrors the ethos of our nation. To see our Indian films, especially one that is so close to me, Adipurush, reach the global stage makes me extremely proud not only as an actor but as an Indian too. I look forward to seeing the audience response at Tribeca," he said.
The Adipurush trailer promises an epic cinematic experience, with stunning visuals and powerful performances from the cast. Fans of the Ramayana will undoubtedly be eagerly anticipating the release of this film, which is set to be a grand retelling of a beloved Indian epic.
