When a person was thrashed for criticising film

Earlier, in an unverified video going viral on social media, a man can be seen being thrashed by a group of people after he pointed out flaws in the film. "Prabhas did not suit in the (Ram) get up. He was like a king and there was royalty in the Baahubali movie. He was taken for this (Ram) role by seeing his performance. Om Raut failed to show Prabhas properly,” the viewer said. He added that he didn't like the film much apart from a few scenes featuring Hanuman and the background score. His comments led to a heated argument between him and other fans of the Telugu star. It soon turned into a physical altercation.

In a separate incident, an audience member was beaten up for sitting in the seat reserved for Hanuman inside the theatre. The video of the incident is also circulating on social media platforms. The producers have decided to keep one seat reserved for Hanuman as a mark of respect in every screening.

As per ANI, a written complaint was lodged against the producer-director of Adipurush at the Andheri police station in Mumbai by the president of NGO Sangharsh, Prithviraj Maske. He claimed portions of the film offended Hindu feelings.
