Vyjayanthi Movies has unveiled the official final trailer for Kalki 2898 AD, the upcoming sci-fi epic directed by Nag Ashwin, known for Yevade Subramanyam, Mahanati, and Pitta Kathalu. This film is the first installment in the anticipated Kalki Cinematic Universe and ranks as the second-most expensive Indian film ever made, with an estimated production budget of ₹600 crore (US$72 million).

While specific plot details are scarce, the film's synopsis sets the stage: Kalki 2898 AD is rooted in Indian mythology and unfolds within a dystopian society set in the desertified city of Kasi in 2898 AD, now the only known city. The city is under the rule of a totalitarian elite called Supreme Yaskin, who governs from a hovering megastructure known as the Complex. The narrative spans millennia, from the events of the Mahabharata in 3102 BC, marking the beginning of Kali Yuga, to the year 2898 CE. At the heart of the story is Kalki, the tenth and final avatar of the Hindu deity Vishnu.

The film will be released worldwide in multiple languages, including Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and English. In addition to standard screenings, Kalki 2898 AD will also be available in IMAX premium formats, promising an immersive viewing experience.

The star-studded cast includes Prabhas as Bhairava, Amitabh Bachchan as Ashwatthama, Kamal Haasan as Supreme Yaskin, Deepika Padukone as SUM-80, Disha Patani, Rajendra Prasad, Saswata Chatterjee as Commander Manas, Brahmanandam as Rajan, Pasupathy as Veeran, Anna Ben as Kyra, Shobhana, Keerthy Suresh as BU-JZ-1, and Anant Vidhaat Sharma.

Prabhas, widely known as the "Rebel Star," gained international fame for his lead role in S. S. Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Beginning and its sequel, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. His recent work includes Adipurush and Salaar: Part 1 - Ceasefire.

Amitabh Bachchan, one of India's most revered actors, has an illustrious career spanning over 200 films. His notable works include Sholay, Don, Mohabbatein, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Khakee, Veer-Zaara, Black, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and Piku.

Deepika Padukone, currently one of India's leading actresses, has starred in numerous blockbuster hits such as Om Shanti Om, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express, Happy New Year, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Pathaan, Jawan, and the upcoming Fighter. She is also set to appear in Singham Again later this year.

With its grand scale, star-studded cast, and intriguing blend of mythology and futuristic elements, Kalki 2898 AD is poised to make a significant impact on the global cinema stage. The film’s innovative approach and high production values reflect the growing ambition and international appeal of Indian cinema. As the release date approaches, anticipation continues to build for what promises to be a groundbreaking addition to the sci-fi genre and a notable milestone in Indian filmmaking.
