Audiences have rejected the film due to its poor VFX and cringe-inducing dialogues. Despite being teased for distorting facts, some of the actors have spoken out in favor of the film. Recently, actor Siddhant Karnick, who played the role of Vibhishan in the film, defended the film saying that it is important to show that ‘our gods are cooler than superheroes’.

He further added that such films should be presented in pop culture format so that children can learn about gods. Siddhant said, “I see my cousins and even some adult friends of mine wearing superhero T-shirts that are largely fictional characters like Spider-Man and Superman. And here we have our own itihaas (history) full of superheroes and mythological gods whose stories and images are still in text form. We need to use pop culture smartly so that we can pass on the stories of our gods to our children’s generation, show them that our gods are cooler and much more layered than fictional superheroes. I’m Don’t tell us to shun Western superheroes. Not at all, but it’s time we put our own Gods in the spotlight and deliver these stories in a superhero language that today’s kids are used to.”
Meanwhile, actor Lavi Pajni, who played the role of Kumbhkaran in Adipurush, expressed his disappointment. Earlier, he said in an interview that he was offended by dialogues.
