London: The highly anticipated magnum opus of the year, Kalki 2898 ADis just days away from its release. Building on the mounting excitement, the film held a grand gala night in Mumbai on June 19th, truly living up to the immense buzz surrounding it.

This star-studded event featured an unparalleled Pan-India cast, including legends and luminaries such as Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, and Deepika Padukone. Producers C. Aswani Dutt, Swapna Dutt, and Priyanka Dutt were also in attendance, adding to the evening’s glamour. The highlight of the night was the remarkable gathering of such an exceptional ensemble. Each star shared their experiences and excitement about being part of this ambitious project, further fueling the anticipation among fans.

Producer C. Aswani Dutt expressed heartfelt gratitude for the overwhelming support and enthusiasm for Kalki 2898 AD. Present at the event he said, “Here are the great  Amitabh Ji, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas and Deepika. Four are here and you all people came. I am very happy for this and I wish a great success for them.”

Present at the event, Superstar Amitabh Bachchan opened up about his experience of working in the magnum opus. He said, “It’s been a great honour to have worked on this project. To work in a setup where they have gone beyond what most of us have been doing all our lives in this film industry. And I really appreciate that they’re moving a little ahead of time and making us a part of it, working in conditions that we never thought we would be able to work in. I want to congratulate Nag Ashwin and the production for thinking of something like this film. It was a great honour for me to be a part of it.

Adding to it Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Haasan said, “I always wanted to play the badman  because badman gets to do all the good things in the film when heroes are singing romantic songs and waiting for the heroine where he can just go and do what he wants, so I thought I am gonna play the bad man so it’s gonna be fun but then he wanted it to be different and I am almost like saying in the film with a bad idea.

Adding to it, Deepika Padukone further stated, “It’s been a great learning experience. A completely new world and we went through different phases of discovering what this movie is all about. The magic that is in Nagi’s (Nag Ashwin’s) head is now here finally for everyone to see. We as actors have discovered that along the way. It’s been an incredible experience, at both a personal and professional level.

Talking about working with legends and sharing the screen with Amitabh Sir and Kamal Sir,” Prabhas added, “I should thank Datgar and Nagi for giving me the opportunity to work with such great legends. It’s bigger than a dream. And I don’t know what to say. When I first met Amitabh Sir, I touched his feet. He said, ‘Don’t do it. If you do it, I’ll do it.’ Sir, please. I can’t even think. We grew up watching you.”

Furthermore, he said, “Kamal Sir, when his Sagar Sangam came out, I asked my mother, ‘I want his dress.’ My cousin, if he had indulged, had a tummy. And they used to put a cloth on his stomach. They used to act in front of us like him. And now I’m working with them. This is like something unbelievable.”

Regarding Deepika he said, “I always wanted to work with her. She is someone who can reach such an international level, and she is a great actor. It was beautiful to work with her.”

Directed by Nag Ashwin and produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, Kalki 2898 AD is set to release theatrically on June 27, 2024. With a star-studded cast featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Disha Patani, the film promises to be an unparalleled cinematic experience.
