A video from the SDCC event has been going viral on YouTube where the director was seen talking about Hanuman and Indian mythology. “For us to be here... I think we are on the shoulders of all this mythology and 100 years of Cinema... Here if you have Superman who can fly into space, we have Hanuman who can eat the sun. If you have Thor or Hulk who can break a building, we have Hanuman who can lift a mountain. I'm very interested for the world to meet India.”

Prabhas, Kamal Haasan and Rana Daggubati were present at the event. A report claimed that Deepika Padukone won't be a part of the event, due to the ongoing strike by the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (SAG-AFTRA) in the US. The actor is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
