Mumbai, June 24: The All India Cine Workers Association has written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the Mumbai Police, demanding the registration of a case against the producer, director, and writer of the movie Adipurush. The letter, dated June 24, 2023, highlights concerns regarding the portrayal of Hindu deities and characters in the film, alleging that it has hurt religious sentiments.

The association expresses its dismay over the release of the movie Adipurush on June 16, 2023, in theaters across the country. They claim that the movie has hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus who hold deep reverence for Lord Ram, Goddess Sita, and Lord Hanuman.
