Adipurush teaser reaction
Earlier, when Adipurush teaser was launched, many fans were disappointed in the VFX of the film and compared it with an 'animation film'. Director Om Raut had also reacted to the trolling the film's first footage had received. Additionally, the dresses and look of Hindu deities as seen in the teaser also received criticism. Om had said he is "disheartened" by the reaction to the Adipurush 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," he said.
