Prabhas on ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ Budget: ‘This Film is Crafted for International Audiences’

Prabhas Discusses High Budget and International Appeal of 'Kalki 2898 AD'

Prabhas, who stars as Bhairava in Nag Ashwin’s highly anticipated film Kalki 2898 AD, has revealed insights into the film’s high budget and its aim to captivate international audiences. The sci-fi spectacle, featuring a star-studded cast including Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kamal Hassan, is set to be one of the most awaited releases of the year.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Prabhas emphasized the global appeal of the film, stating, “The whole film is made for international [audiences]. That’s why it’s the highest budget and we’ve got the best actors in the country.” The actor also shared his thoughts on being recognized as a pan-Indian star, saying, “We were hearing for the first time people calling me ‘pan-Indian’. That doesn’t really affect me but it’s a good feeling to think that people around the country like me now.”

Kalki 2898 AD is described as a mythology-inspired sci-fi extravaganza set in the distant future. Recently, director Nag Ashwin unveiled a video introducing Bhairava’s sidekick, a robot named Bujji, voiced by Keerthy Suresh. The team spent four years developing this character, which was revealed at an event in Hyderabad. Amitabh Bachchan also expressed his admiration for the project, stating, “When you work on such projects it is never known what the end results shall be… and as the days pass by, and the clips and finer points begin to appear… you wonder how in hell did the Director conceive all this .. and the admiration never stops… Now… I end this DAY… with wonder and admiration.”

The film, initially scheduled for release on May 9, has now been postponed to June 27. Director Nag Ashwin has previously discussed the inspiration behind the film at the Synapse 2024 event in Gurgaon, explaining, “The film starts with Mahabharat and ends in 2898 AD. It spans 6000 years in time. We tried to create worlds, imagining what they would be like while still keeping it Indian and not making it look like Blade Runner.”
