At the teaser launch, Prabhas said he was afraid to do the role.

The much-awaited first teaser of Prabhas starrer Adipurush was unveiled on Sunday at Ayodhya. Helmed by Om Raut, the film also stars Kriti Sanon, Saif Ali Khan and Sunny Singh. The teaser was released on the banks of river Sarayu in the holy land of Lord Ram, Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

At the teaser launch, Prabhas said he was afraid to do the role. The actor said, “I was really frightened to portray this character. After three days of fear, I called Om (Raut). We made the film with lots of love and respect. Now, we need Lord Rama’s blessings. Jai Shree Ram.”

When asked what qualities he would like to imbibe from his character, Prabhas said, “Dedication, loyalty, and discipline.”

Earlier in the day, a source told Bollywood Hungama, "The team of the film will walk from a specially constructed bridge on the River Sarayu. They'll come on the stage after which a giant poster of the film, which is 50 feet in size, will be unveiled. Then on a screen, the teaser will be shown. Interestingly, the promo will be played in all the five versions - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam – one after another."

The source revealed that the first-look event of this scale has never happened before for a film in India. The source stated, "Around 10,000 people are expected to witness the event. 250 policemen and 200 bouncers have been deployed. We are confident that this event will be talked about and will be remembered for years to come."

The film is based on Ramayana, showcasing the triumph of good over evil. This religious town where the launch event will take place in Uttar Pradesh is also the birthplace of Lord Ram, making the location much more relevant for this grand event.

Produced by T-Series Films and Retrophiles, the film features Prabhas as Lord Ram, while Kriti plays the role of Janaki (Sita). It also stars Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh and Sunny Singh as Lakshman. Adipurush is a visual extravaganza slated to release on January 12, 2023, in IMAX and 3D. It will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam in theatres.
