Readers may recall that in the past few weeks, Om Raut has been constantly in the headlines for visiting Vaishno Devi Temple, a prominent Ram Mandir in Mumbai, and Karmanghat Hanuman Temple on various occasions. As mentioned above, he recently visited Uttar Pradesh and met the Chief Minister of the state, Yogi Adityanath. Raut took to his social media handle and shared a photo to give a peek into his meeting with the CM.
In the photo, the director and the CM can be seen posing with smiles on their faces while the latter gifts a statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to the latter. In the caption, Raut wrote in Hindi, “The nation is made up of traditions and culture. As a result of the values and traditions instilled in him by Rajmata Jijabai during his childhood, Shivaji became the flagbearer of Hindu sovereignty and rose to become the illustrious Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.”
He further added, “During a visit to Uttar Pradesh, I experienced immeasurable joy upon giving a statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Rajmata Jijabai as a gift to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.”
Coming back to Adipurush, Om Raut, who previously helmed the hugely successful Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, has been working hard to ensure that the forthcoming film lives up to its hype. The film is expected to be a visual spectacle, with stunning sets and grand action sequences that will transport audiences to the ancient world of Ramayana. In addition to Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan, the film also stars Kriti Sanon as Sita, marking her first collaboration with Prabhas.
