About Kalki 2898 AD

Kalki 2898 AD, an upcoming sci-fi film written and directed by Nag Ashwin and produced by C Aswani Dutt, is set in a post-apocalyptic world in the year 2898 AD. The star-studded cast includes Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Deepika Padukone, Disha Patani, and Brahmanandam. The film is slated for a global theatrical release on June 27.

Earlier, Mumbai Police used a viral video featuring cricketer Hardik Pandya to talk about road safety. The viral moment was captured after India’s resounding victory against Pakistan by seven wickets. Pandya, who took on the role of an anchor, conducted candid interviews with his teammates. As he attempted to interview Ravindra Jadeja, he found him on a phone call. That’s when Pandya humorously said, “Phone kappo.”

“When we spot you on the phone while driving,” wrote Mumbai Police while sharing the video on Instagram. The video shows Pandya approaching Jadeja. He then says, “Phone pe hai, to phone kappo [are you on a call? Disconnect it]’. Mumbai Police said that this is how they react when they see people talking over the phone while driving.
