The disappointing teaser of 'Adipurush' has sparked a new conversation across social media platforms, with Netizens saying that Prabhas has made a blunder by accepting to do a mythological film with a Bollywood director. Bollywood has no tradition of making theatrical, realistic mythological dramas.
For whatever reason, 'Adipurush' has been made as a live-animation movie that reminds us of Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan. The action sequences, however well-choreographed they might be, may enthuse only kids if the film turns out to be as cartoonish as the teaser.
T-Series is one of the producers of 'Adipurush'. Netizens feel that Prabhas shouldn't have entered into a deal with the banner. 'Radhe Shyam' too was co-produced by T-Series.
Vijay Deverakonda's 'Liger' had a prominent Bollywood connection, with Dharma Productions spearheading the project in Mumbai. Even Mike Tyson's presence in the film is attributed to Karan Johar.
The Telugu audience might blame Bollywood production houses for the woes of Prabhas and VD, but the fact is that 'Radhe Shyam' and 'Liger' were made by Telugu directors. Both scripts were nurtured in Hyderabad before Bollywood banners stepped in to back them.
