We are proud of our culture,” Pathak said in a assertion.

This is our records they’re representing; they can not do it inside the guise of creative liberty,” she said. Saif Ali Khan can be visible as Ravana inside the film even as Prabhas is Lord Ram and Kriti Sanon is Sita.

I am writing a letter to Om Raut to take away all such scenes from the film. If not removed, we can don’t forget criminal action,” Mishra said.
