Adipurush Overcomes Backlash, Crosses Rs 200 Crore at Box Office.

Adipurush, the highly anticipated film starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan, directed by Om Raut, has made a strong impact at the box office, despite facing backlash from fans. The movie, which draws inspiration from the ancient epic Ramayana, has sparked mixed reactions among netizens, with some expressing dissatisfaction over the portrayal of the characters and storyline. However, this negative reception hasn't hindered Adipurush's box office performance.

According to early estimates for the second day, Adipurush has already surpassed the impressive milestone of ₹200 crore in box office collections. On its opening day, the film garnered ₹140 crore. These figures include both the regional and Hindi versions, with the Hindi release also achieving significant success. Continuing the trend, Adipurush reportedly earned approximately ₹65 crore across all languages on its second day, with the Hindi version contributing around ₹37 crore to this total. These exceptional numbers have propelled the film's cumulative box office collection past the ₹200 crore mark.

Notably, Adipurush has also achieved considerable success overseas, joining the prestigious ₹100 crore club on its opening day, alongside other notable films like RRR and Pathaan. While the final figures for the second day are yet to be announced, the film has undeniably made a strong impact in both domestic and international markets.

In Adipurush, directed by Om Raut, the story of Ramayana unfolds with Prabhas portraying the role of Raghav (Lord Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita Maa), Sunny Singh as Shesh (Lord Laxman), and Saif Ali Khan as the villainous Lankesh (Raavan). The film revolves around the abduction of Janaki by Lankesh and the ensuing battle between him and Raghav. Despite the film's success at the box office, many fans have expressed disappointment with certain aspects, such as the dialogues and Saif Ali Khan's appearance, and have even called for a ban on the film.
