An animation firm claims that Adipurush's poster, which showcases Prabhas carrying a bow and arrow is a duplication of their design. When comparing its own Shiva poster to the Adipurush poster that featured Prabhas as Raghava, Vaanar Sena Studios stated that the creators should at the very least give it credit.
A collage of the Adipurush poster and a "Lord Shiva still" was re-shared by Vaanar Sena Studios. The photograph had a caption next to it that read: "Looks like makers inspired Adipurush first look poster from Lord Shiva still. Such a shame, T- Series should mention the original creator, who developed the artwork @vaanarsenastudios."
One of the user commented, “Hello, the original artwork on the right is by the artist @markeviv Please mention the same in your post. Let it reach the makers so that the due credit is given to this incredible artist. This is so disappointing to know!” Vivek also re-shared one of the posts demanding his credit for the poster on their Instagram Stories.
Saif Ali Khan plays Lankesh in Adipurush, and Kriti Sanon plays Janaki. The movie's teaser has drawn criticism ever since it was unveiled last week at a significant occasion in Ayodhya. The characters' appearances have drawn criticism, and several celebrities have also voiced their opinions. Om Raut, the film's creator, replied to the criticism by saying it wasn't "meant for the little screen."
Adipurush, which will be directed by Om Raut and produced by T-Series and Retrophiles, will hit theatres on January 12, 2023. The movie will be released in the following languages: Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.
