“My mom says, every time Ramayan is staged, Hanuman ji comes to watch it. So my request to Bhushan sir, Anil (Thadani, the distributor) sir, that for our Hanuman ji, in every show of Adipurush, one seat should be kept vacant. Everywhere in the world, wherever there is an Adipurush show, I request the producer and distributor to keep one seat for Hanuman ji, he will come to see Ramayan,” Raut said as he started tearing up. Prabhas, who was standing next to the filmmaker, gave him a side-hug and kept his arm around his shoulders to comfort an emotional Raut.
