Apart from Deepika, Kalki 2898 AD features Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Disha Patani in the lead.

The film's timeline will commence with Indian epic Mahabharata and merge with 2989 AD.

Speaking of the film, Ashwin had said as quoted by News 18, "The film starts with Mahabharat and ends in 2898 AD. It spans 6000 years in time. We tried to create worlds, imagining what they would be like while still keeping it Indian, and not make it look like Blade Runner.

"The film begins 6000 years behind 2898 AD is 3102 BC, which is when the last avatar of Krishna is believed to have passed."

The film is slated to release on June 27.
