Dipika Chiklia has disapproved of Adipurush teaser saying she does associate 'Ramayana with Visual effects'. In an interview with India Today, the actress said, "I have seen the teaser of Adipurush.

Adipurush teaser trolled over Hanuman's look 

Comparisons are also being made with Lord Hanuman from Ramanand Sagar's serial Ramayana to Adipurush. Actor Devdatta Gajanan Nage is playing the role of Hanuman in Adipurush. Netizens have claimed that Hanuman's look in the film also has similarities with the Islamic attire. The portrayal of Hanuman, with a beard, without a moustache and dressed in leather, also attracted criticism. Commenting on the same, Dipika said seeing that the teaser, she could not make out much about Hanuman's attire but if that is the case, "Then I think that the intention that Valmiki and Tulsidas had while writing the epic, should be maintained because it is an asset of our country.

Om Raut reacts to Adipurush trolling 

Meanwhile, Adipurush director Om Raut said he is "disheartened" by the reaction to the teaser. "I was disheartened but not surprised because the film is made for a larger medium. You can cut it down to some extent, but can’t bring it down to a mobile phone, that’s an environment I can’t control. If given a choice, I had never put it on YouTube but that’s the need of the hour. We need to put it there so that it reaches a wide audience," Raut told reporters at the media preview of film's 3D trailer on Tuesday.
