"I had seen Adipurush's first look much before everyone and I believe Prabhas fits the role of Lord Ram perfectly. Prabhas' career is already at the pinnacle and Adipurush will take it to the next level. There's a lot of devotion across the country ever since the Bhoomi Pooja for Ram Mandir. Everyone is chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans. The fact that the film is based on Lord Ram will be an added advantage," said SS Rajamouli.

The director said, "We are all waiting to go back to shoot but I'm waiting for the doctor's advice on it."

He added, "We have already released Ram Charan's first-look and are yet to release Jr NTR's. Once we begin shoot, we will immediately shoot Tarak's part and maybe even release the teaser in ten days. We will also be able to release the film six to seven months after shooting commences. But there's a lot of uncertainty still."
