Adipurush Dialogue Controversy Explained ‘Sita is the daughter of India’

The upcoming film Adipurush has garnered a lot of attention ever since its announcement. Directed by Om Raut, the film is based on one of the greatest legends of Indian mythology, the Ramayana. Featuring Bollywood actor Prabhas in the lead role as Lord Rama, the trailer of the film has already created a buzz on the internet. However, a controversy has now erupted over a statement made in the trailer, regarding the birthplace of Lord Rama’s wife, Sita. In the trailer of Adipurush, Sita is referred to as the ‘daughter of India’. This reference to Sita’s origin has upset many people in Nepal, as she is believed to have been born in Nepal’s Janakpur. This has caused a huge backlash among Nepalese citizens and political leaders, who are demanding an apology from the filmmakers.

Kathmandu Metropolitan City Mayor Balen Shah has been the strongest voice in this controversy. He has announced that if the movie does not correct the ‘mistake’ and acknowledges Sita’s true origin, no Indian film will be showcased in the capital territory of Nepal. He has also criticized the portrayal of the ‘conquest mentality’ shown in the movie, which he believes undermines the relationship between Nepal and India.

This controversy highlights the delicate nature of historical and cultural references in the film. While it might seem like a small detail to some, the way in which characters and events are portrayed can have a significant impact on the way that audiences perceive those characters and events. In the case of Adipurush, the filmmakers may have inadvertently stepped on the toes of an entire nation by referring to Sita as an Indian rather than a Nepalese. However, it is worth noting that the Ramayana is a story that is revered across much of Southeast Asia, and as such, it is not surprising that many people feel a strong connection to its characters and themes.
