Meanwhile, recently Adipurush grabbed headlines wherein a report surfaced stating that the budget of the film wouldn't have spiked so much had Prabhas convinced Om Raut, the director to not shoot in Mumbai. As per the latest report in Times of India, the director insisted that the film be shot in Mumbai, now with the spike in cases, the massive sets have been dismantled and the production has hence incurred a spike in the budget. A source close to the development of Adipurush said, "If Raut had given in to Prabhas' insistence, the budget might not have increased. But who knew that Maharashtra was headed for several curbs! It's a matter that gets highlighted in the postmortem. Today, Hyderabad has a few restrictions. But the erection of the new sets is going on and the unit is hopeful to start the proceedings in the next 7-8 days."
Stating why om Raut wanted to shoot in Mumbai, the source revealed, "The budget of the film would have multiplied as the entire cast and crew then would have to be given lodging-boarding in Hyderabad. Plus, Om, Saif and Kriti are from Mumbai and only Prabhas had to make the move. The crew employed was also from Mumbai."
