He said, "Our film starts in Mahabharata and it ends in 2898. That’s the title of the film, it’s called Kalki 2898 AD. It spans 6,000 years of distance and time. So trying to create worlds that are there here, imagining what it could be like, still keeping it Indian and not make it look like a Blade Runner or a Tokyo Spice Punk..." When asked why the mysterious figure 2898 was included in the film's title, Ashwin explained that 6000 years ago corresponds to 312 BC, when Krishna's last known avatar appeared on Earth. The film begins during the Mahabharata era and ends 6000 years later in 2898 AD.
