Despite such humongous response, it seems Rajamouli was irked when the trailer was compared to Hollywood flick Hercules.

In a recent interaction with the media, the filmmaker was asked to comment on a part in the trailer that resembled a war scene from 2014 release Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson. This irked Rajamouli, who lashed out at the reporter saying that he should watch the film before coming to a conclusion. He further explained that war or action scenes in movies do have similarities but what matters is how the sequence is shot and presented.
