Ramayana Budget: It has been a week since the release of ‘Adipurush’, directed by Om Raut, and after the initial two-three, the film seems to be getting badly beaten at the box office. There is a continuous protest regarding the selection of dialogues, VFX, character of the film, due to which the makers have to bear the brunt at the ticket window.
500 crores ‘Lanka’?
Now the situation is that the film has been able to collect only 5.50 crores on Thursday i.e. 22nd June. While the film collected 86 crores on the first day itself. All the stars including Om Raut have worked hard for this film. There was a buzz about the film for a long time, especially when it was revealed that the budget of the film is 500 crores, then people felt that the pairing of Prabhas and Kriti Sanon is going to create history in the theatre. But the opposite happened, cursing away from creating history, demands are being made to ban the film.
Opposition was heavy on the makers
People say that the film has hurt Hindu sentiments and made fun of ‘Ramayana’. There is a lot of resentment among the public, politicians and some celebs against this film based on the story of ‘Ramayana’. By the way, while making the film, perhaps even the makers would not have thought that 500 crores would be wasted like this. In the meantime, let us tell you how much money the makers had spent on Ramayana serial 36 years ago and then how much they earned.
In which budget was the Ramayana serial made?
Ramanand Sagar’s serial ‘Ramayana’ was telecasted 36 years ago in 1987. You can get an idea of the emotions people had about this serial at that time from the fact that earlier the makers were going to telecast its 52 episodes, but due to the public’s love and demand, 78 episodes were released. It was the costliest serial of that time, which cost around Rs 9 lakh to make one episode. Also, its viewership was so strong that the earning of each episode was around Rs 40 lakh.
