Chandrayaan-3 successfully landed on the Moon on August 23. While everyone was celebrating, some people on X (formerly Twitter) took the chance to slam Prabhas's movie 'Adipurush.' The mythological epic didn't do well at the movies, and now its budget and results are being compared to the Chandrayaan-3 mission. When Prabhas's movie 'Adipurush' came out on June 16 with high hopes, reviewers and moviegoers both gave it harsh reviews.
At 6:04 p.m. on that amazing August day, Chandrayaan-3 gently touched down on the south pole of the Moon. This was a big step in India's history. In a funny twist, critics used social media to point out that Chandrayaan-3 had a smaller budget than Prabhas's movie 'Adipurush.' Chandrayaan-3 cemented its place in history, but 'Adipurush' was a big flop at the box office.
The Hindu novel Ramayana was the inspiration for the big mythological action movie 'Adipurush.' Om Raut is in charge of the movie, and the main parts are played by Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan. When the movie came out, it got a lot of bad reviews. Fans thought the visual effects were sloppy and called it a 'cheap attempt.'
The film started out with a budget of Rs 500 crore, but changes to the visual effects pushed the price up to Rs 700 crore, making it one of India's most expensive films. It is said that 'Adipurush' made around Rs 400 crore at the box office.
