Speaking at the Synapse 2024 event, Ashwin dropped a major bomb, stating that “Kalki 2898 AD” actually begins with the events of Mahabharata and spans a staggering 6000 years in time, ending in the futuristic year 2898 AD. This revelation adds a whole new layer to the film’s narrative, raising several questions about how the events of Mahabharata will be woven into the story and what role they will play in the larger context of the film’s plot.

While details remain scarce, Ashwin did clarify that he didn’t want the film’s futuristic world to resemble Hollywood’s typical sci-fi aesthetic, emphasizing the desire to create a unique vision that retains an “Indian” feel.


This news has sent fans into a frenzy, eager to understand how Ashwin will navigate such a vast timeframe and connect the dots between the mythological past and a futuristic dystopia. The presence of actors like Amitabh Bachchan (rumored to portray Ashwathama) and Kamal Haasan further fuels the speculation, hinting at a grand narrative encompassing mythology, sci-fi, and possibly even reincarnation.

With “Kalki 2898 AD” promising a unique blend of history, mythology, and futuristic spectacle, the film is definitely one to watch out for. As the release date approaches, one can expect even more exciting details to emerge, further fueling the anticipation for this highly ambitious project.
