Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is all ready to play Lankesh, the demon King Ravan, in his upcoming film Adipurush. Directed by Om Raut, the film will feature Prabhas and Lord Ram and will show the conquest of good over evil.
Recently Saif opened up about his character and publicized that the director has tried to make Ravan gentle in the film. He also said that the film will rationalize Ravan’s abduction of Sita. He told a media house that, “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 her nose.”
On returning in yet another role with negative shades in an Om Raut film, Saif said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Omi dada again! He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further!
While the fans have been eagerly awaiting the film, Saif’s statement that the film will ‘justify the abduction of Sita by Ravan’ has peeved them. The film is in the pre-production stage and scheduled to go on floors in January 2021.
