After outperforming all regional and Hindi films of the year, “Kalki 2898 AD,” originally a Telugu film, has emerged as the latest pan-Indian hit. It is expected to break several box office records in the coming days. However, it remains to be seen if it will surpass the lifetime records of films like “Baahubali: The Conclusion” and “KGF: Chapter 2,” which stand at over Rs 1200 crore worldwide. “Kalki 2898 AD” was touted as the most expensive Indian film of all time, with a budget of around Rs 600 crore. A lot was riding on the film’s success, especially for Prabhas, who has delivered only one hit in the seven years since “Baahubali 2.”

Directed by Nag Ashwin of “Mahanati” fame, “Kalki 2898 AD” is a sci-fi dystopian film featuring Prabhas, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The film blends Indian mythology with sci-fi elements and has been positively received by both critics and audiences. It concluded with the promise of a second part, which will focus on the arrival of Kalki, the tenth avatar of the Hindu lord Vishnu.
