Nitish Bharadwaj Praises Nag Ashwin

While showering praises on Nag Ashwin, Nitish stated, “(Nag Ashwin has) made clever use of Mahabharat characters and the futuristic birth of Mahavishnu’s last avatar Kalki. Hindi film producers must learn from the South as they are so deeply rooted in our scriptures and epics that even their inspirational versions seem correct.”

He added, “No doubt, Kalki seems to have definite visual inspiration from Mad Max movies. Yet, it seemed different because, eventually, the sets and production design were less important to me than the foreground story. Ashwin merged the 2 extremely well.”

Ravi Chopra, the son of producer BR Chopra, directed the TV show Mahabharat. First aired on Doordarshan from 1988 to 1990, the 94-episode serial was based on the epic Mahabharat. Girija Shankar, Goofy Paintal, Gajendra Chauhan, Pankaj Dheer, Mukesh Khanna, and Roopa Ganguly were among the other actors who starred in the show.

Speaking of Kalki 2898 AD, with an estimated budget of ₹600 crore, Nag Ashwin’s ambitious 3D spectacle Kalki 2898 AD is being hailed as the most costly film ever made in India.

On June 27, the action drama featuring mythology and science fiction was released worldwide in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, and English. Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Deepika Padukone, Prabhas, Disha Patani, Saswata Chatterjee, and Shobhana are among the stars of Kalki 2898 AD, which is produced by Vyjayanthi Movies.
