The first glimpse of the film shows Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Prabhas in a futuristic world. It shows Deepika, Amitabh and Prabhas as warriors in a war-like situation. Kalki 2898 AD will release in 2024.

A video from the SDCC event has been going viral on YouTube where the director was seen talking about Hanuman and Indian mythology. “For us to be here… I think we are on the shoulders of all this mythology and 100 years of Cinema… Here if you have Superman who can fly into space, we have Hanuman who can eat the sun. If you have Thor or Hulk who can break a building, we have Hanuman who can lift a mountain. I’m very interested for the world to meet India.”
