Mohit Raina on Adipurush Downfall: Talk about Lord Shiva, Actor Mohit Raina is the first name that comes to the mind because of his flawless and mass appealing work for playing Lord Shiva in Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev. Mohit, who has already been accepted by the audience in an epic role reacted to the audience backlash, Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan, and Kriti Sanon-starrer Adipurush faced. Audience as well the makers had high hopes from the Om Raut-directed cinematic adaptation of Ramayana to become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. Unfortunately, the film faced eminent negligence and criticism even after a record-breaking start. The film suffered a free fall and crashed at the box office. Unallied depiction of iconic characters and controversial dialogues penned by Manoj Muntashir rattled the audience.

While talking to a newspaper, Mohit has put up his opinion on the drawback of Adipurush. According to Mohit, when a maker tries to make content based on an Indian epic, or on its characters, they are liable to take care of audience sentiments. He said “Agar aap creatively kuch karte hai, ya aapka kuch creative aspect hai, ya vision hai, ek certain project ko le ke, Aur aap audience ke liye banate hai. Toh aap (makers) unke liye responsible hai. You’re liable towards them (When you go creative with a certain subject, you are making it for the audience. So, the makers are liable and responsible to our audience’.)”

We are Nothing Without Audience – Raina

Raina further added that when we make a series or a film, we make it for the audience because we are nothing without them and we want maximum participation from them. “Hum jab kuch banate hai toh apne liye toh banate nahi, Hum jo consume karte hai, woh apne liye toh karte nahi.” Mohit explained it further by giving an example of dining out. “When we go out to eat, we either order our food or we ask the chef to recommend his best dish. When we don’t like a particular thing in the dish, we asked Chef to rectify it, and he does it. Because at the end of the day, we are delivering to their customers- to the audience.” Mohit continued, “So definitely the makers have to be responsible and they need to understand that we are here to serve the audience. Agar audience hi dekhne ke liye nahi hogi, toh hum banayege kis ke liye (To whom are we catering, if we don’t have an audience for our content).”

According to the reports, till day 25, Adipurush earned Rs 404.25 crores approx. Also Mohit’s latest film, Ishq-E-Nadaan is streaming on Jio Cinema.
