While speaking about the film on the podcast, Rana expressed his excitement for Nag Ashwin's sci-fi action-thriller despite not being part of the film. He opined, “The next big moment is Kalki. Nag Ashwin is a very dear friend. Not just India and the Indian diaspora but everyone in the world will connect to Kalki. For a long time, I have been waiting for an Avengers moment from our side. That’s what has excited me to be part of it.”

Rana had previously accompanied the Kalki 2898 AD team to the San Diego Comic-Con when it was tentatively titled Project K. While speaking about the Prabhas-Deepika Padukone star in an interview at India Today conclave, Rana said, “We celebrate each other’s cinema fully. Like there is another film called Project K, which Nag Ashwin is directing with Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. That’s a film we are really looking forward to in Telugu. That film will, I think will break the boundaries that both Baahubali and RRR haven’t done. Pushing that boundary to the next edge. I am really looking forward to that film and it could really become a global film from Telugu (cinema).”
