It is known that the makers of 'Adipurush' have asked Indian distributors/exhibitors to keep one seat vacant across all shows of the film. The seat is meant for Lord Hanuman. At the film's pre-release event on Tuesday, director Om Raut requested overseas distributors, too, to do the same.
The move has been ridiculed by some folks on social media. They may be in a minority, but they are loud.
The makers of 'Adipurush' have been accused of trying to cash in on the devotional sentiments of Hindus by announcing the 'one seat vacant' gesture after making the movie with commercial considerations in mind. In order to change the perception, what T-Series and People Media Factory can do is they must announce that a small percentage of the profits from the movie will be donated to some sacred cause related to Lord Ram. That way, they will earn respect and trolling might also stop.
Probably, Prabhas too can pledge some part of his remuneration towards the Ayodhya temple being built currently.
