The release of 'Kalki ' become contentious, date set for June 20th

The release of ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ has become contentious, with the film’s date set for June 20th. The question arises as to why the release date of the film starring Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan was changed to June 20th, sparking social media outrage for the third time over altering the film’s release date.

The new science fiction drama ‘Kalki’ has already faced criticism, and now the issue of its release has arisen, with Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Amitabh Bachchan starring in the film.

‘Kalki’ was supposed to be released on January 12th

The film ‘Kalki’ was originally scheduled for release on January 12th, 2024, but its date was pushed back to November 2024. However, the saga continues as its new date is now scheduled for June 20th, 2024.

Why was the release date of ‘Kalki’ changed?

The reason behind the changing release date of the film ‘Kalki’ has come to light. Production banner Vyjayanthi Movies shared the date along with the new poster of Prabhas on social media, and lead actor Prabhas also promoted the film by tweeting. The post on Instagram stated that the countdown has begun, and the film will soon adorn cinema halls.

Like Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan also shared the film’s poster on his Instagram, revealing the new release date and promising to take the audience to a world never seen before in Indian cinema.

The official title announcement of the film ‘Kalki’ was made by San Diego Comic-Con in July 2023, with the first look portraying Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Prabhas in a warlike situation. The film depicts India in a futuristic setting, portraying how futuristic India will be, attempting to give the entire country a science fiction makeover.

The reasons for the delay in ‘Kalki’

The reasons for the delay in ‘Kalki’ have also surfaced on social media. It is being suggested that possibly due to the VFX work, the film’s dates were changed. Additionally, the ongoing elections in India have also led to a change in the film’s release date. Since the Lok Sabha elections are creating a frenzy across the country and the voting dates in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh fall on May 13th, releasing the film amidst such circumstances wouldn’t be beneficial for the makers.

‘Kalki’ won’t release on June 20th:

On the other hand, some sources claim that ‘Kalki’ might not even be released on June 20th. However, if the film is deprived of the June 20th date, securing a favorable release date would be challenging because many big films are already lined up for release in South India. With ‘Hindustani 2’ in June, ‘Pushpa 2’ in August, ‘G.O.A.T’ in September, and ‘Dheera’ in October, releasing Prabhas’s film ‘Kalki’ in June poses a significant challenge for the makers.

Director Nag Ashwin’s statement:

Director Nag Ashwin, while speaking to the Indian media, stated that science fiction films aren’t made in India. While we have made some short sci-fi films, our film will be different from all others. This film is made on a global scale because we haven’t seen India in a futuristic or dystopian setting. Therefore, now we need to see London and New York to create India in the same way.

Promotion of ‘Kalki’ outside Mannat:

The promotional team of the Telugu film industry’s superstar Prabhas’s upcoming film ‘Kalki’ gathered outside Mannat, Shah Rukh Khan’s residence. Twitter user Shahrania Jhanvi shared a post stating that the promotion of ‘Kalki’ outside Mannat is ongoing. A picture has also been shared on social media showing three members of the mentioned team, with their faces covered in masks, holding rifles in two hands, and one holding a poster. In the background is the nameplate of Mannat, Shah Rukh Khan’s residence.

It’s worth noting that earlier there was a clash in the release dates of the film ‘Donkey’ and the film ‘Salar’, but both superstars changed the release dates of their respective films.



Q1: Why has the release date of ‘Kalki’ been changed multiple times?
A: The release date of ‘Kalki’ has faced changes due to various reasons, including possible delays in VFX work and scheduling conflicts due to the ongoing elections in India.

Q2: Will ‘Kalki’ still be released on June 20th?
A: There are doubts about ‘Kalki’ releasing on June 20th, as conflicting reports suggest that the film might face further delays. Securing a favorable release date amidst the crowded South Indian film market poses a challenge for the makers.

Q3: What did director Nag Ashwin say about ‘Kalki’?
A: Director Nag Ashwin highlighted that ‘Kalki’ is distinct as it ventures into unexplored territory for Indian cinema by depicting India in a futuristic or dystopian setting, promising a unique cinematic experience.

Q4: What was the promotional event outside Mannat about?
A: The promotional team of ‘Kalki’, led by Telugu superstar Prabhas, staged a promotional event outside Mannat, the residence of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, garnering attention on social media platforms.

Q5: How did other film releases impact ‘Kalki’s scheduling?
A: The clash in release dates of other highly anticipated films, such as ‘Donkey’ and ‘Salar’, added complexity to ‘Kalki’s release planning. Despite this, the superstars of those films did not alter their respective release dates.


Prabhas’ eagerly awaited sci-fi epic “Kalki 2898 AD” faces setbacks, pushing its release to June 20, possibly due to extensive VFX work. Previous clashes with election dates necessitated rescheduling, but securing an optimal release amidst a competitive South Indian film landscape remains a challenge. Director Nag Ashwin’s vision of portraying Indian cities in a futuristic setting adds a unique dimension to the film’s narrative.
Whatever the reasons for the controversial release of the movie Kalki, it is being told that the movie will be a blockbuster, because the two major actresses of this movie are Barbhas and Amayath Bachchan, due to which this movie can be successful, but now it will be seen how successful the movie will be.
