New Delhi: Veteran actor Sunil Lahri, who is well known for playing the iconic character of Lakshman in the evergreen Ramananda Sagar directorial Ramayana, has spoken about his views on Om Raut’s latest release Adipursh.
Calling the magnum opus “Disappointing”, Sunil stated that he had high expectations from the movie prior to its release. He further went on to say that it’s not at all justified to play with your own culture in the name of doing something different. The movie’s characters are not defined and the public is unable to connect to them on an emotional level.

Sunil also voiced his anger over the movie’s objectionable dialogue writing by saying, “Can you ever think Hanuman saying Tel tere baap ka or Megnad using words like abey Chal Nikal lye”?
Taking a dig at Adipursh Ravan’s looks, the veteran actor said that he can’t understand why Ravan is seen riding a giant bat instead of his Pushpak Vimana in the movie or why Lakshman and Megnad fighting underwater. Sunil ended his video with the remarks that Adipurush makers should feel sorry for playing with the emotions of the Public.
Notably, In a separate interview, Sunil stated that if he has to ignore all the flaws of Adipursh and focus on something positive in the movie, then it will definitely be Saif’s acting as Ravana because he is the only one who has done justice to the character given to him.
