Recently Actor Saif Ali Khan wooed himself into another controversy after he revealed that the makers of his upcoming movie ‘Adipurush’ have decided to show ‘Raavan’ as humanely as possible. Explaining about the movie, actor says that the movie will also justify the reason behind the abduction of Mata Sita.
The movie ‘Adipurush’ is allegedly based on Ramayan and the Bhahubali actor Prabhas will portray the role of Lord Ram.
In a conversation with Mumbai Mirror on his upcoming project Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan explains that he was quite excited to play the role of ‘Raavan’ in the upcoming historical drama. Implying about the character and the concern of the movie, Saif Ali Khan revealed how the moviemakers have decided to portray Raavan as humane as possible.
Many times in the past he was caught distorted India’s cultural history. He also added that they will even try justifying the abduction of Sita by Ravan.
By rising the entertainment quotient in the movie, Saif Ali Khan said that the makers have decided to portray his war with Lord Ram as a revenge to Lakshman’s treatment to her sister Surpanakha. “It’s interesting to play a demon king, less strictures in that. But we will make him humane, up the entertainment quotient, justify his abduction of Sita and the war with Ram as revenge for what was done to his sister Surpanakha by Lakshman, who cut off his nose,” he added.
Saif Ali Khan, who claims to be a ‘history bluff’, seems to have an extremely terrible knowledge on India’s cultural history.
A few months back, the movie ‘Adipurush’ got into a difficult situation when it was announced that Saif Ali Khan would play the role of Lankesh. Several netizens had expressed their anger against the choice of actor for the role of Lanka Pati. The netizens gave for their displeasure because of Khan’s acting skills, nasal voice, height, and most prominently, his views on the history of India.
The actor has time-and-again courted controversy by coming up with ridiculous theories about India’s cultural past. It was evident with the fact that Saif Ali Khan, after the release of Movie Tanhaji, had stated in an interview with the indian author Anupama Chopra that the concept of ‘Bharat’ did not exist before the British came.
Yes, he stated that.
According to Saif, Tanhaji movie’s script was based on a ‘wrong’ portrayal of history. In the interview, he had also claimed that he did not believe in the script of the movie as it was not in sync with the history of India.
Due to this he always remains in a controversy and most of the netizens dislike him.
