Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has once again become a target of social media trolls. The actor has come under fire for his statement regarding his character of Lankesh aka Ravan in the upcoming film Adipurush. He said that director Om Raut has made the evil character humane and entertaining. He even went on to say that the film’s plot justifies Ravan’s abduction of Sita.
“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 her nose.” said Saif to Mumbai Mirror.
After the interview came out, Saif is being trolled on social media left, right and centre. Many users are demanding boycott of Adipurush, there are others who are tweeting with hashtag #WakeUpOmRaut. Many have demanded removal of Saif from the movie.
