Adipurush writer Manoj Muntashir admits mistake months after release; confesses relocating abroad to avoid death threats


Manoj Muntashir shares that he has learned his lesson after the Adipurush debacle. Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan starrer Adipurush might have earned Rs 340 crores in India upon release, but it tanked terribly and was trolled brutally online. The reason being the caricaturization of Gods, lords and legends from the Hindu epic, Ramayana. Not just the dialogue but also the looks of the characters of Ram, Raavan, Sita, and others were heavily criticised by fans. Om Raut and Manoj Muntashir defended their work on Adipurush which only added to the wrath of fans. But now, Muntashir, the writer of Adipurush has admitted his grave error.
