Adipurush screening with altered dialogues now

Adipurush is based on the Hindu epic Ramayana but many have accused the film of modernising the characters and dialogues. Amid heavy criticism, the makers finally made changes in lines like ‘Kapda tera baap ka (the cloth belongs to your father)’ which has now been changed to ‘Kapda teri Lanka ka (the cloth belongs to your Lanka)’.

Adipurush box office

According to a report on, the film collected 5.5 crore on day 7. This takes the first week collections of the film to an estimated 260.55 crore in all languages at the domestic box office. Adipurush has however, crossed 400 crore worldwide gross. T-Series on Thursday tweeted that the film has earned 410 crore gross in six days.

The continues fall in daily numbers suggests the changes are too little, too late for the audience. In the opening weekend, Adipurush made on a budget of 500-600 crore, raced to 340 crore in just three days — 140 crore on day one, followed by 100 crore each on day two and three at the worldwide box office. But it witnessed a drastic slide soon after as negative word of mouth spread on social media.

Nepal lifts ban on Adipurush

As per latest development, a Nepal court on Thursday lifted the ban on Hindi films, including Adipurush, asking authorities not to halt the screening of any movie passed by the country’s censor board. A dialogue of Adipurush in which Sita is mentioned as “India’s daughter”, had led to the ban on all Hindi films, which was announced by Kathmandu Mayor Balendra Shah. Sita, also referred to as Janaki, is believed by many to have been born in Janakpur in southeast Nepal.
