The All Indian Cine Workers Association on Tuesday, June 20, wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding a ban on the screenings of Adipurush starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and directed by Om Raut. In a detailed statement addressed to PM Modi, the association stated that the screenplay and dialogues were portraying Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman in a negative light while adding that the film was hurting the religious sentiments of the Hindus. They also requested the Prime Minister to order an immediate ban on Adipurush in theatres, including OTT platforms in the future.
"All Indian Cine Workers Association Demands Ban on Screening the Movie Adipurush, This Movies screenplay and dialogues are clearly defaming the Image of Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman. Adipurush Movie is Hurting religious Sentiment's of Hindus and Sanatan Dharma.
Prabhu Shri Ram is a God for everyone in India not matter what religious faith one comes from, this Movie Depicts lord Race and even Ravan who looks like a Character of a video game, with dialogues hurting every Indian in the country and across the Globe.
We request Hon'ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji order to stop screening this Movie and immediately order a Ban of Adipurush Screening in the Theatres and OTT platforms in the Future.
We need FIR against the Director (Om Raut), Writer (Manoj Muntasir Shukla ) & the Producers of the Movie who have hurted the Hindu Sentiments and Save the Image of our Bhagwan She Ram, Maa Sita & Ramsevak Bhaghwan Hanuman.
Actor Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif All khan shouldn't have been part of such a disgraceful movie ever made in the history of Indian Cinema, Adipurush is a complete disaster of our faith in Shri Ram and Ramayan."

Despite Adipurush getting mixed reviews, the mythological action film based on the Hindu epic Ramayana has raced to Rs. 375 crores in worldwide gross collections in four days and is going strong in cinemas. The sensational opening has helped the fortunes at the box office and it remains to be seen how farther the film will go in the days ahead.
We are grateful for your love and devotion ❤️ Jai Shri Ram! 🙏— T-Series (@TSeries) June 20, 2023
