The two-minute trailer opens with a cryptic exchange. Amitabh Bachchan, portraying the enigmatic Ashwathama, delivers a powerful line to Deepika Padukone’s character: “They say the whole universe resides within God. But God himself resides in your womb.” This sets the stage for a series of intriguing scenes, showcasing Deepika in various settings while cryptic pronouncements fill the air. The tension escalates as the trailer depicts a fierce clash between Amitabh and Prabhas, hinting at a major conflict brewing.

Desolate landscapes flash across the screen, followed by a powerful statement from Kamal Haasan, “Despite the endless opportunities spanning over generations, man fails to redeem himself and he never will.” This line resonates with the film’s futuristic reimagining of the Mahabharata, set in a dystopian Kaashi. A prophecy foretells the overthrow of the ruler by a child, a child carried by Deepika's character. Prabhas steps in as Bhairava, a skilled hunter, while Amitabh’s portrayal of Ashwatthama has already captured hearts.

Adding to the buzz, the cast of Kalki 2898 AD recently converged at a grand event in Mumbai. The evening witnessed a heartwarming moment when Amitabh, after purchasing the film's first ticket, presented it as a gift to Kamal. “I will give it to my colleague, my dear friend, my brother Kamal Haasan,” declared Amitabh before inviting him on stage. This gesture of camaraderie further fuelled the excitement surrounding the film.
