Om Raut was inspired by the 1992 animation film Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama and wrote Adipurush. While the former was an animation film, the latter was a motion-capture 3D film

It was originally made with a budget of Rs. 400 crores. But the teaser, released last year, got a poor response. Everyone slammed the poor VFX work. Then the makers postponed the release and reworked the VFX by spending additional 100 crores. The total budget now stands at Rs. 500 crores

 Kriti Sanon was not the first choice for the female lead role. The makers considered the likes of Anushka Shetty, Anushka Sharma, Keerthy Suresh, and Kiara Advani before Kriti came on board.

Prabhas became the highest-paid actor in the country by taking a remuneration of Rs. 150 crores for Adipurush.

During Adipurush’s shoot in 2021, the film’s set caught fire in Mumbai. Luckily, no injuries or casualties were reported. Later, the makers built a new set and shot the remaining scenes

Adipurush was supposed to have a world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on June 13. For some unknown reasons, the plan was dropped.
