Moreover, it has been reported that due to the Lok Sabha elections in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on May 13, the producers decided to postpone the release date of Kalki 2898 AD. Since the budget of the film is quite high, the makers cannot rish the viewership of the movie with any mega event around the clock.

New clip teases Big B's mysterious look in Kalki 2898 AD

Kalki 2898 AD is produced by Aswini Dutt of Vyjayanthi Movies. A clip introducing Bachchan as Ashwatthama was aired on TV ahead of Sunday evening's IPL 2024 match between Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans.

In the video, a child can be seen asking the mysterious character who he is. In his deep baritone reply, the man -- covered in bandages and with a bow in his hands -- introduces himself. "Since the last age, I have awaited for the arrival of Dashaavatar. Guru Drona's son, Ashwatthama," he says. In no time, the teaser of Kalki 2898 AD went viral on social media. Big B has been de-aged in the movie digitally.
