Saif Ali Khan who is playing Raavan in the upcoming mythological epic ‘Adipurush’ says his version of the demon king will be more ‘humane’. ‘Baahubali’ actor Prabhas is playing Lord Ram in the Om Raut directed the film.
In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Saif said ‘Adipurush‘ will attempt to ‘justify’ Raavan’s actions.
This is Saif’s second time working with Raut. He also appeared as the antagonist in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
“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 was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror.
The shooting for ‘Adipurush’ will begin in January 2021 in one long schedule. Talking about shooting the film in 3D, a source told Mumbai Mirror, “It will mostly be shot in the studio against a chroma screen. Om and Bhushan have been talking to VFX technicians of international repute, who have worked on films like Avatar and Star Wars, to make the shooting process smooth and mount the film on a certain scale.”
