When Saif Ali Khan is not acting movies, or spending time with his family, he is finding new ways to land in a soup. After talking about eugenics and nepotism in the same breath, and questioning the factual accuracy of the Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, where he played a key role, the actor has invited the wrath of Twitterati again. This time, by saying that his upcoming film, Adipurush, will justify the actions of Raavan, the demon king. Adipurush: Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan Starrer to Hit the Screens on August 11, 2022 (View Post).
In Adipurush, Prabhas plays the role of Lord Rama, whereas, Saif is Raavan. In a recent interview, Saif said, "It’s interesting to play a demon king, less strictures in that. But we will make him humane, up the entertainment quotient, justify his abduction of Sita and the war with Ram as revenge for what was done to his sister Surpanakha by Lakshman, who cut off his nose."

"The Whole Movie Should Be Banned"
Why shouldn't the whole movie be banned when it's core idea is to justify Ravana? Why is Saif cornered for revealing the thoughts of a writer? @pammi1995 #SaifAliKhan #Adipurush pic.twitter.com/jkf4hg8ciN

It Has Once Again Become A Left Vs Right Issue
Let me get this straight -Ravan abducted Sita, a married woman without her consent, kept her in captivity.#SaifAliKhan claims his character will justify her abduction
& Liberals who keep crying over "unfair treatment" of Sita by Shri Ram are providing arguments in his support pic.twitter.com/Dnq7LdJtde
