‘Kalki 2898 AD’ Trailer Released, Deepika As Mother is Surprise Element

Mumbai: The much-awaited trailer of Nag Ashwin’s futuristic epic, “Kalki 2898 AD” was released on Monday. Within 18 hours of its release, the trailer amassed 13 million views on YouTube.

The trailer of this sci-fi movie also including Ashwatthama character (played by Amitabh Bachchan) of the Mahabharata, provides an imaginative world of distant future.

Ashwin’s glittering star-studded cast includes Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Kamal Hasan, and Disha Patani. With a budget of 600 cores, it is one of the most expensive Indian films to date.

Set in Kasi (Varanasi), the sci-fi narrative spans from 3102 BC, the onset of ‘Kali Yuga,’ to 2898 AD, centering on Kalki, the tenth avatar of Vishnu. The trailer unveils a city ruled by a dictator.

The surprise element in the intense trailer is Deepika’s character, notably her pregnant state. While her role remains ambiguous, conjectures suggest she carries Kalki’s avatar, supported by Bachchan’s remark dubbing her unborn child as divine. As the dictator perceives the child as a threat, he assigns Prabhas to pursue her, with Bachchan sworn to protect her at any cost.

After “Brahmastra Part One: Shiva”,  Padukone has returned in another maternal role in this movie.
