Abhishek Bachchan Praises Amitabh Bachchan’s Kalki 2898 AD Trailer as “Astounding”


In a heartwarming gesture, Abhishek Bachchan took to social media to laud the newly released trailer of his father’s forthcoming film, Kalki 2898 AD. Directed by Nag Ashwin, the movie delves into a mythological sci-fi realm, with Amitabh Bachchan portraying the character of Ashwatthama, the legendary son of Dronacharya.

The poster shared by Abhishek features a gripping confrontation amidst a futuristic backdrop, signaling an intense narrative awaiting audiences. Describing the trailer as “mindblowing!!!!”, Abhishek’s excitement was palpable as he tagged the ensemble cast, including Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Disha Patani, and Nag Ashwin, along with the production house Vyjayanthi Movies.

For those who missed it, the trailer offers a tantalizing glimpse into the world of Kalki 2898 AD, set in a dystopian Kaashi, the last bastion of humanity on Earth. Amidst the struggle for survival, a pregnant woman portrayed by Deepika Padukone becomes the focal point of a power struggle, with Amitabh Bachchan’s Ashwatthama recognizing the divine significance of her unborn child.

Adding to the intrigue is Prabhas as Bhairava, a formidable force determined to protect the pregnant woman against the machinations of the ruling king, played by Saswata Chatterjee. The trailer also showcases Kamal Haasan in a role that promises to be a departure from his previous portrayals.

Scheduled for a theatrical release on June 27, Kalki 2898 AD marks the much-anticipated on-screen collaboration between Prabhas and Deepika Padukone.
