On its eighth day at the box office, the highly-anticipated film Adipurush, featuring renowned actors Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan, seems to be nearing the end of its theatrical run. Although the film had an impressive first week, accumulating approximately ₹260 crores across all languages in India, its performance has taken a downturn. On Friday, the film managed to add a mere ₹3.25 crore to its collection. This article will explore the challenges faced by Adipurush and shed light on the recent modifications made to the film in response to criticism.

Struggling at the Box Office

On the eighth day of its release, it managed to earn only ₹3.25 crore, marking its lowest daily earnings thus far. This puts the film’s total domestic collection at approximately ₹263.15 crore.

Criticism Surrounding Adipurush

Adipurush, an adaptation of the revered Indian epic Ramayana, has faced substantial backlash following its release. Critics and reviewers alike have expressed concerns over certain dialogues present in the film. Lines such as “Marega bete” (The son will die), “Bua ka bagicha hai kya” (Is this your aunt’s garden?), and “Jalegi tere baap ki” (Your father’s funeral pyre will burn) have garnered negative attention. In response to the criticism, the filmmakers have taken steps to modify some of these problematic dialogues.
