Kalki 2898 AD: Diljit Dosanjh gives Punjabi twist to 'Bhairava Anthem' as he collaborates with Prabhas

After much anticipation the wait is finally over. The creators of Kalki 2898 AD have unveiled what is being hailed as India’s Biggest Song of the Year—the Bhairava Anthem. This song brings together India's most formidable talents, featuring global icons Prabhas and Diljit Dosanjh in a collaboration that fans have eagerly awaited.

'Kalki 2898 AD' has been a film that can only be called a dream, uniting the country’s top actors, being the first Indian film to make its mark at Comic-Con San Diego, the first-ever Indian film to feature an animated prelude, and even showcasing a 4-ton futuristic vehicle ‘Bujji’ currently touring India. Now, they’ve surpassed expectations by blending the cultural richness of North and South India into an anthem.

The music video, set in the dark and futuristic world of Kashi, is a visual marvel. Sung by Diljit Dosanjh and Vijaynarain, with lyrics penned by Kumaar and music composed by Santhosh Narayanan, the track is a perfect description of Prabhas's character Bhairava in the film. Choreographed by Pony Verma, the video has the unique styles of Diljit and Prabhas, featuring both global artists in black lungis and turbans. The highlight in the video comes when Prabhas picks up his lungi, makes a turn, and walks away with his signature swag, prompting Diljit to join his hands in admiration. Truly a mic-drop moment!!

The trailer, spanning two minutes and fifty-one seconds, draws audiences into a world of Indian mythology, complemented by top-notch sci-fi and VFX. In the electrifying trailer, megastar Amitabh Bachchan brings to life the enigmatic Ashwatthama with unmatched intensity, showcasing his action prowess. Meanwhile, Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan looks truly unrecognisable in his intriguing portrayal. Elevating the excitement, Prabhas dominates the screen with his power-packed action and undeniable chemistry with the futuristic vehicle and his trusted best friend ‘Bujji’. Further, Deepika Padukone adds depth to the narrative with a range of emotions in each frame. Additionally, Disha Patani impresses with her incredible action sequences. The trailer is filled with references to a ‘naya yug’ (new era) on the horizon and an impending battle.

Expressing his thoughts on the film’s trailer, Director Nag Ashwin stated, “My heart is filled with so many emotions today. As a filmmaker, I have always been fascinated by Indian mythology and science fiction. Merging these two elements in ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ is nothing short of a dream, made possible by the incredible talent and dedication of our artists and team. It has taken us a lot to witness this day today. From our producers and star cast to the brilliant creative minds and the entire crew of Kalki 2898 AD, each person has poured their heart and soul into this film. We hope the trailer makes the Telugu audience and the entire  nation proud, leaving them excited for what’s to come.”

Kalki 2898 AD boasts an all-star cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Disha Patani. Produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, the film is slated for a worldwide release on 27th June, 2024.
