While the film received critical acclaim, some viewers felt the first half lacked the action-packed punch of the latter portion. Interestingly, Kamal himself seems to share this sentiment. “I signed Kalki 2898 AD for the second part. I am playing a very small role in Kalki 2898 AD, but it’s the next part that intrigued me”

The actor elaborated, In this part, I have shot for very limited days. But I liked the trust they have, for agreeing to me on contract for a film to be made.”

In Kalki 2898 AD, Yaskin appears frail and dependent on life-support systems, hinting at a long and possibly augmented life. The film also reveals he’s the mastermind behind a vital serum carried by Deepika Padukone’s character, SUM-80. The movie’s closing moments leave viewers with the strong implication that Yaskin will play a more pivotal role in the upcoming sequel.
