Bhairava Anthem

On Sunday evening, the team of Kalki 2898 AD released the song, Bhairava Anthem, on all music platforms. Composed by Santosh Narayanan, the peppy number is an experimental mix of Punjabi and Telugu lyrics with Diljit Dosanjh and Deepak Blue’s vocals. The Telugu lyrics are replaced in the Tamil and Hindi versions while the Punjabi lyrics remain the same.

On Saturday, the team released a short promo that was also received well by fans. While the makers were supposed to release the video on Sunday, they pushed release to Monday morning, writing, “The wait is almost over for the #BhairavaAnthem. Just a little longer, and you can enjoy it. In the meantime, listen to it on your favourite music streaming platforms! #Prabhas x @diljitdosanjh. Full Video Song out Tomorrow at 11 AM.”

Fans react

As soon as the song was released on music platforms, fans took to X (formerly Twitter) to share their thoughts. One fan wrote, “Already naaku ekkesindi #BhairavaAnthem. Hindi and Tamil good but Repeats lo Telugu kuda ekkesindi. (I already like Bhairava Anthem. I like it in Hindi and Tamil but have begun liking it in Telugu after hearing it repeatedly)”

Another wrote, “I generally am not a fan of Punjabi songs in every Damn Hindi movie. I had my reservation on the #BhairavaAnthem. But The Way the Tune complimented the Punjabi Lyrics are Absolute Fire. The Non-Punjabi Lyrics are also great and Character expository.” Fans were also thrilled to see Prabhas dressed in Punjabi attire for the song.
