Krishna To Kalki: Prabhas Takes Us To Mahabharat Time

Prabhas is a national phenomenon, and any news about his films sparks national interest for sure. That too, when a filmmaker like Nag Ashwin imagines something very significant, it surely garners the attention of all the film industries in India.

Nag Ashwin's "Kalki 2898 AD" is a film that narrates a story spanning 6000 years from 3102 BC to 2898 AD.

Nag Ashwin revealed that the film starts with a background from the time of the Mahabharata.

Nag Ashwin stated, “The film starts with Mahabharat and ends in 2898 AD. It spans 6000 years in time. We tried to create worlds, imagining what they would be like while still keeping it Indian, and not make it look like Blade Runner. The film begins 6000 years behind 2898 AD is 3102 BC, which is when the last avatar of Krishna is believed to have passed.”

Saying about the extensive Art Work used for the film he shared, “We had to build so many sets, designs, vehicles for this film. It was a lot of process to ideate, conceptualize, build it, prototype, machinery, ageing. Had I used OpenAI's Soras, I wouldn’t need to do this. It could just be a prompt and I wouldn’t need to go for VFX. I am also thinking that, in the process of this struggle, will some magic come through? Because we take months to perfect this, something new could happen. If it’s as easy as a prompt, are you missing something as a creator?”

The film is scheduled for a May 8 theatrical release. Santhosh Narayanan works as the music director and the pan-Indian mega production is under the aegis of producer C Ashwini Dutt on his Vyjayanthi Movies banner.
