Prabhas Adipurush has been mired in controversy ever since the film's first teaser was launched on October 2 by the star cast at an event in Ayodhya. Now, even as an online protest against the film intensifies over representation issues, a poster featuring Prabhas has been accused of plagiarism. The matter was raised on social media first and managed to reach Vaanarsena Studios, who were allegedly the first ones to create the poster along similar lines with Lord Shiva.
