While there is no official confirmation on Dulquer Salmaan's role in Kalki 2898 AD, the star almost confirmed the news while promoting his upcoming movie King of Kotha.
It seems director Nag Ashwin has some more surprises when it comes to the star cast of his upcoming science-fiction magnum opus, Project K , officially titled Kalki 2898 AD. As if the movie's cast is not already overflowing with star power, the young director seems to have also roped in Dulquer Salmaan, who is a pan-India movie star in his own right.
While there is no official confirmation on Dulquer's role in Kalki 2898 AD, the star almost confirmed the news while promoting his upcoming movie King of Kotha . During the promotions in Hyderabad, Dulquer was asked about his involvement in Kalki 2898 AD. While he refused to give a straight answer, he shared his experience of being on the set of the movie.
"I can't reveal anything about Project K, but I will just tell you, I went to the sets and I was blown away. I thought it was such a...I think only Nagi can think like that. He's a director who surprises you right? Whether it's his first film Yevade Subramanyam, a completely different shift to Mahanati and then he goes and does Project K, which is set in the future. And the sets are so interesting because it's pretty much nothing there. It's all in his imagination," Dulquer said.
When he was pressed further for more information, he requested to keep the questions limited to his movie King of Kotha. "I shouldn't be talking about it. I don't know whether I am in film or not," he added.
However, many have taken Dulquer's ambiguous response as a confirmation of his involvement in Kalki 2898 AD.
Written and directed by Nag Ashwin, Kalki 2898 AD is a big-budget cinematic extravaganza. The major highlight of the movie is its star cast which has some of the biggest names in the Indian film industry, including Prabhas, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone.
Last month, the filmmakers released a glimpse of Kalki 2898 AD , revealing the character looks of Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. Kamal is said to be playing the main antagonist in the movie, which is said to be envisioned as a movie franchise.
