Manoj Muntashir Says ‘Sorry With Folded Hands’ For ‘Hurting People’s Emotions’ In Adipurush, Netizens Are Divided | People News

New Delhi: Filmmaker Om Raut’s recent outing Adipurush received massive backlash upon release. Viewers disapproved of the few controversial dialogues, representation of iconic characters from the epic and depiction of Raavan and his Lanka. The makers even had to change the dialogues mouthed by Hanuman and Indrajeet after being severely bashed online. And now writer-lyricist Manoj Muntashir has apologized for it.


On Saturday, he took to social media and wrote a heartfelt apology for hurting the audience’s sentiments in Adipurush. He said: I accept that public sentiments have been hurt by the film Adipurush.
To all my brothers and sisters, elders, respected sages and devotees of Shri Ram, I apologize unconditionally with folded hands.
May Lord Bajrang Bali bless us all, give us the strength to remain one and unbreakable and serve our holy eternal and great country!
