Describing his role in the movie, Saif had said, "My character is a failed Naga sadhu, who has strong notions of revenge... I even got my ears pierced for the role, which I was worried about initially. My hair has grown a lot. It bothered me throughout summer, when I was shooting in Rajasthan’s sweltering heat."

In an exclusive conversation with Firstpost, Saif Ali Khan talks about his concerns as an open-minded actor.
Moreover, the film has been registering constant growth from its first day all across the nation, which was just exponential on the second day with approx. 200% growth in multiple cities.
The makers of Adipurush were advised against signing Saif Ali Khan for Raavan. But they wouldn’t listen. Their argument was, it is the role of the villain. Which is akin to arguing that Raavan is the villain of the Ramayana. He may or may not be.
