Project K is the maiden collaboration of Prabhas and Nag Ashwin. Ashwin wrote: “Dear @anandmahindra sir...we are making an Indian sci-fi film with Mr.Bachan, Prabhas and Deepika called #ProjectK. A few vehicles we are building for this world are unique and beyond the tech of today...if this film does what it is supposed to, it will be the pride of our nation.”

Requesting Anand Mahindra’s support, Ashwin further wrote: “I admire you a lot sir..we have a talented, fully Indian team of engineers and designers..but the scale of the project is such that we could use a hand..such a film has never been attempted before...it would be an honour if you can help us engineer the future.”

In February 2020, the project was officially announced via a special video which was released on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Vyjayanthi Films, the producers of the movie.

On joining the sets of the film, Amitabh Bachchan wrote on Twitter: “Travelled…and the mahurat of the first day tomorrow. A new film, a new beginning, a new environ .. 'NEW' never fades .. it grows exponentially (sic),”

Elaborating about the actor's role, Nag Ashwin had tweeted, “Not a guest role or a special appearance...but a full length role so important, that his character’s name was the working title of an early draft...thank you @SrBachchan sir for the privilege...we will make it worthy of your time #Prabhas #DeepikaPadukone (sic),"

On roping in Amitabh Bachchan, producer Ashwini Dutt said that he's thrilled to be associated with him. “The late legendary Shri NTR was an admirer of Shri Amitabh Bachchan and had even acted in the Telugu remakes of a few of his superhit Bollywood films. Shri NTR and I had watched the landmark film Sholay several times when it ran for over a year at NTR's Ramakrishna Theatre. After all these years, it is truly a glorious and immensely satisfying moment for me to welcome Indian cinema’s greatest icon, Shri Bachchan to be a part of this prestigious movie under our banner, Vyjayanthi Movies. It is a production house that began its cinematic journey with Shri NTR and also was named by him,” said Ashwini.
