According to sources close to the production, the film, originally set to hit theaters on May 9, will now be delayed to a later date. An official announcement regarding the new release date is expected from the makers soon.

Directed by Nag Ashwin, known for his previous works like “Yevade Subramanyam” and “Mahanati,” “Kalki 2898 AD” also features Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan in pivotal roles.

Speaking about the film at an event held at IIT Bombay, Nag Ashwin highlighted its unique concept, stating, “In India, we haven’t explored much in the sci-fi genre. This film ventures into a futuristic world of its own, which is a rarity in our cinema. It’s exciting because it presents India in a futuristic and dystopian setting, a perspective we haven’t seen before.”

He further explained, “The film is set in a timeline just before and after the Midjourney era, and we witnessed significant advancements, especially with text-to-image and image-to-text generators, which facilitated our work.”
