"I can feel the pain and anger."
Social media users believe that Prabhas is angry with Om Raut as a video has circulated online.
The video appeared online following the poor reception that the Adipurush teaser trailer received.
The film stars Prabhas, Saif Ali Khan and Kriti Sanon, and it is based on the epic Ramayana.
There had been a lot of anticipation, however, the teaser trailer did not go down well.
Much of the criticism was directed toward the heavy use of CGI and VFX, which has been poorly executed.
As a result, viewers have called out director Om Raut.
Fans now believe that lead star Prabhas is angry with Om over the way the film has initially turned out after a video went viral.
The short video shows Prabhas in a hotel lobby asking Om to come with him, presumably to his hotel room.
However, the actor has a stern look on his face and the tone of his voice sounded serious.

The video went viral and there is speculation that Prabhas is angry with the director.
One person said: “Never saw Prabhas so angry.”
Another said: “Prabhas looks genuinely angry.”
A third wrote: “Prabhas never looked this angry before. He has always been a shy and humble guy.
“Om Raut had it coming. He had no idea how to shoot or plan for the CG of Adipurush.
“Took references from Hollywood to create what doesn’t even look like Ramayana.”
One person who was disappointed by the teaser trailer felt they could relate to Prabhas’ expression, writing:
“I can feel the pain and anger.”
Previously, Om Raut said he would not have directed Adipurush if Prabhas passed on the film.
He said: “I always had Prabhas in my mind when I was writing Raghav’s character – it became so compelling for me.
“If it was not him, I would have not made the film.”
Om revealed that he travelled to Hyderabad in 2020 to discuss Adipurush with Prabhas.
The actor described the meeting as a “super exciting day” but admitted that after three days, he got a little stressed out.
“I thought it’s the most precious film for the country – can I do it?”
But Om told him not to worry, adding:
“It was a beautiful thing that happened. And I think it’s the most prestigious film in my life.”
On why he accepted the film, Prabhas said it was Om’s “intriguing screenplay and how it integrates the history and culture of India”.
Calling Prabhas the “quintessential superstar”, Om said:
“The way he has played it is divine. It’s extremely spiritual on many levels, yet at the same time, it’s a commercial flick.
“So, it has that crazy balance of playing to the gallery, obviously, like everybody does, but at the same time, we had to maintain the sanctity and purity of the character and stay within that boundary and try to achieve what we want to achieve.”
