Adipurush Actor Prabhas To Perform The Ravana Dahan At Lal Qila Ground

Adipurush, the movie starring Prabhas, debuted its eagerly anticipated teaser for the public on Sunday. The film is based on the Ramayana and stars Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan, and Sunny Singh. The teaser was unveiled on the banks of the Sarayu in Ayodhya, one of the world's most sacred places. Actors Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, as well as the director's Om Raut and Bhushan Kumar, were present at the occasion. A life-size Ravana effigy will reportedly be burned by Prabhas at the Ramlila at the Lal Qila Ground in New Delhi. The celebrity will attend the ceremony alongside Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and President Droupadi Murmu.

 
IANS quotes Arjun Kumar, the secretary of the Lav Kush Ramlila Committee, as saying, "Prabhas played Lord Rama in Adipurush and thus we thought to invite him as a chief guest along with the President of India and the Delhi Chief Minister. All three will shoot the arrows to kill Ravana in Ramlila." The Ramlila is happening after a couple of years in Delhi, and hence, the committee wanted to do it on a grand scale. For two years we couldn't organize Ramlila because of Covid but this year we thought to do it on a large scale so that more people can come and watch it. Thus, we involved about 22 celebs, and they all became part of our Ramlila. And this is also one of the main reasons to invite Prabhas as a guest.”
 
The movie, which is based on the Ramayana, depicts the victory of good over evil. In the film, Prabhas portrays Lord Raghava or Lord Ram. The actor remarked, “We are here to take Lord Ram’s blessings for Adipurush. I was really frightened to do this character. I called up Om after three days and said if I make some mistake… With a lot of love, respect, and fear we did this film. May Lord Ram bless us.”
 
When asked what traits he wanted to embody, Prabhas responded, "Dedication, loyalty, and discipline."
 
Prabhas plays Lord Ram in the T-Series Films and Retrophiles-produced movie, which also stars Kriti in the role of Janaki (Sita). Sunny Singh and Saif Ali Khan both appear as Lankesh and Lakshman, respectively. Adipurush is set for an IMAX and 3D release on January 12, 2023. It will be available in theatres in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
