Rajamouli took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the trailer’s link, stating just how pumped he is to watch the film.

The new trailer confirms what many have already guessed: that Deepika’s character, Sumati, is carrying Kalki. “God resides in your womb,” says Amitabh’s character, Ashwatthama, in a scene before he fights Prabhas’ character, Bhairava, and everyone who comes in his way to save her and her baby. 

Kamal’s character, Supreme Yaskin, also comments on how man won’t change no matter how many changes he gets. His withdrawn look from the film as a sage is also revealed. The new trailer also shows Prabhas in a new robotic suit, ready to take on the world for his bounty.

About Kalki 2898 AD

In a video played at the pre-release event, Nag explained that the world of Kalki 2898 AD is divided into Kasi, Complex and Shambala. He said, “Ganga is dry and people are struggling. A mega city called Complex has ample resources. The people of Kasi dream to enter Complex but it’s a trap to make them work for it. Shambala, the Shangri La, a mystical world is the place for refugees and rebels, those fighting against the Complex.”
