The commemoration of the arrival of 'Adipurush' has been done at the cinema houses. The figures of advance ticket booking at theaters are telling that in the Ramkatha pandal (theatre) where Hanuman ji is present, victory is bound to ring. For Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan and Devdutt Nage starrer Bhagwanmai Ho Uthi film 'Adipurush' (the film to be screened on Friday) has seen excitement outside the talkies since Monday.
'Adi Purush' is Ramayana base story. It is said that where Ram is discussed, there is Hanuman. With this announcement, a seat has been reserved for Hanuman ji in every talkie. It is felt that Hanuman ji will definitely be present there to watch the film. That seat will not be sold. This arrangement has been made for Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada language release theatres. That is why the film's posters are captioned: "The Adipurush of every Indian".
For every action there is a reaction. What became of the discussion of reserving a seat in theaters in the name of Hanuman ji, the blacksmiths got a chance. The one who will sit on the seat next to Hanuman ji, the supreme devotee of Lord Ram, will be lucky... will pay more money. And, the news started coming that the seats near that one seat were being sold by increasing the price! The producers of the film, T-Series, had to announce that "there is no increase in the prices of any seats, people beware!" An alert has been given on Twitter by T-Series.
Director Om Raut, the writer of 'Adipurush', requested the producer Bhushan Kumar, distributor Anil Thadani and the executives of the film to leave a seat for Hanuman ji in every talkies, saying that his grandmother used to say that wherever Ram is discussed, Hanuman ji is there. That's why everyone accepted his intention to leave a seat for Hanuman ji in every theatre. And, its benefits are also visible. After a long time, news has been heard of black tickets being bought in the cinema, even if it is about taking a seat adjacent to a seat.
Let us tell you that in the film 'Adipurush', South star Prabhas has played the role of Ram and Kriti Sanon has become Janaki i.e. Sita. Saif Ali Khan is in the role of Ravana (Lankesh) and Devdutt Nage is in the role of Bajrang i.e. Hanuman ji. Posters of both Prabhash and Kriti Sanon have come to be sold in the markets as Ram Sita, just like the posters and pictures of Arun Govil-Deepika were seen during the days of 'Ramayana' serial.
However, the first day advance booking reports of the film are very positive. It is being said that this film can cross Shahrukh Khan's film Pathan, which recorded the biggest grosser of 2023. If this happens then it will be called the grace of Hanuman ji... Jai Shri Ram!!
