The AI-powered car has continued to captivate audiences since its introduction, with creators recently unveiling a special clip featuring Kantara actor Rishab Shetty attempting to operate Bujji, a Batmobile-like vehicle of the future. In a unique celebration planned by the Kalki 2898 AD team in Kundapura, Karnataka, they honoured the Kantara actor, showcasing his interaction with Bujji in a specially crafted video.

The video began with the rhythmic beats of traditional dhol welcoming Rishab and Bujji. As the actor took Bujji for a thrilling ride, a crew member watched over from the rear seat. The caption read, “KALKI X KANTARA: @rishabshettyofficial gets behind the wheel of #Bujji. #Kalki2898AD.”

Reflecting on his experience with Bujji, Rishab mentioned, “The glimpse in the teaser was enough for me to know the range of Bujji in the film.” He added, “It was an amazing experience to take Bujji for a spin.” He concluded by wishing the film’s team good luck, saying, “All the best, Bhairavaa and Bujji. Kalki 2898 AD is releasing on June 27. Go to the theatres and experience it on the big screen; all the best Prabhas sir.”
