    Kalki 2898 AD: Amitabh as Ashwatthama.. Do you know who is Ashwatthama?

    April 23, 2024

    In the distinguished movie ‘Kalki 2898 AD’, directed by Nag Ashwin and featuring Rebel Star Prabhas, Bollywood’s renowned actor Amitabh Bachchan plays a pivotal role. A teaser showcasing his character was recently unveiled, generating buzz on social media. In the film, Amitabh embodies the character of Ashwatthama, which has piqued curiosity about this character’s role in the epic narratives.

    Who is Ashwatthama?

    Since the announcement that Amitabh Bachchan would take on a role in ‘Kalki 2898 AD‘, there has been heightened anticipation about his character. Reports hinted he would portray a significant figure from the epics, which the film’s team confirmed as Ashwatthama. This reveal has sparked renewed interest in the character, known from the Mahabharata as Drona’s son. Cursed by Krishna in the Dwapara Yuga, Ashwatthama is doomed to live with festering wounds, bleeding and producing pus until the end of time. Religious experts believe that Ashwatthama still walks the earth, his wounds covered in bandages. Amitabh’s appearance in the recent promotional material strikingly mirrors this legendary depiction.

    What’s in the glimpse?

    Introducing Ashwatthama, the film unit released an intriguing video on Sunday. In it, a child asks Amitabh, “Are you immortal? Are you a god? Who are you?” To which Amitabh introduces his character, saying, “The time for the ultimate battle is near. I am Ashwatthama, the son of Guru Dronacharya,” and then vanishes. This glimpse has charmed netizens, heightening expectations for the movie. The background score provided by Santosh Narayanan for this glimpse is highly appreciated.

    Is Nag following Rajamouli?

    Similar to how director Rajamouli showcased key characters in ‘Baahubali‘ through special previews at its release, ‘Kalki’ director Nag Ashwin appears to be adopting a comparable strategy. Rajamouli introduced figures such as Prabhas (Baahubali), Rana (Bhallaladeva), and Anushka (Devasena) using distinctive promotional clips. In the same vein, Nag Ashwin has introduced Amitabh Bachchan’s character. A teaser featuring Prabhas as ‘Bhairava’ is anticipated soon, and there are hints that characters portrayed by Deepika Padukone and Kamal Haasan will be revealed shortly.

    Are Deepika and Kamal’s roles confirmed?

    There’s a buzz on social media regarding the roles being played by Deepika Padukone and Kamal Haasan in ‘Kalki 2898 AD’. It is rumored that Deepika will appear as ‘Kaumudi’ and Kamal Haasan as ‘Kali’. Videos related to their characters are anticipated soon, and clarity from the film unit is awaited.

    Disappointment among Prabhas’s fans!

    The release date for ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ has been a topic of continuous speculation. Initially set for May 9, the film’s debut has been postponed due to delays in production. While new release dates are under consideration, fans of Prabhas were hopeful that the release date would be announced in the ‘Ashwatthama video glimpse’ following the reveal of Amitabh’s character. However, with no definitive date confirmed, there is a sense of disappointment among the fans.
