Adipurush Director Om Raut Kisses Kriti Sanon At Tirupati Temple, Sparks Controversy
New Delhi: The upcoming film Adipurush has raked up yet another controversy. The film’s director Om Raut is being criticised. Raut has sparked controversy on social media after a video of him kissing Kriti Sanon on her cheek went viral. Netizens don’t seem to have a problem with the gesture, which seems harmless. It is the premises.
In the video, Raut can be seen bidding goodbye to Sanon as the latter leaves Tirupati Temple. The team of Adipurush, including the film’s leading man Prabhas, launched the film’s trailer at Sri Venkateswara University Stadium in Tirupati.
Controversy erupted when Om Raut and Kriti Sanon visited the Lord Venkateswara Temple in Tirupati on Wednesday morning. As they were exiting the temple premises, Raut gave Kriti a goodbye kiss on her cheek as she left in her car. The gesture has not gone down well with certain people including Ramesh Naidu Nagothu, the BJP State Secretary in Andhra Pradesh.
“Is it really necessary to bring your antics to a sacred place? Engage in public displays of affection, like kissing and hugging in front of the Lord Venkateswara Swamy temple in Tirumala is deemed disrespectful and unacceptable,” tweeted Nagothu but later deleted the tweet.
