Directed by Nag Ashwin, the project stars Prabhas and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. The science-fiction film will hit the theaters in January next year.

The long-awaited first look of Project-K was released at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) in the United States. Veteran actor Kamal Haasan attended the launch along with several other cast and crew members of the film. Directed by Nag Aswin, the film stars Prabhas and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. On the other hand, Kamal Haasan will be playing a negative role in the upcoming project. At the global event, the veteran actor shared the reason behind accepting to act as a villain in this ambitious film and there is no doubt that he will do justice to it.

At the San Diego Comic Con, Kamal Haasan joined a panel discussion with other members of the team including Prabhas and Rana Daggubati. Speaking at the event, he said, “I accepted this film because I come from analog cinema. Without negative, there is no positive. Therefore, a negative role is an important role in a film. Two negatives make a positive.” His reply drew massive applause. The clip of the event was shared by one of his fan pages on Twitter.

Before launching the first preview, the Project K team gathered for a get-together. Kamal Haasan wore a classic black jacket with a white shirt, while Prabhas looked dapper in a blue blazer with a black T-shirt.

Vyjayanthi Movies shared a few pictures on social media and mentioned how they missed one of the cast members, legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan. He wrote, “Armies meet Kamal Haasan, Prabhas. Wish you were with us in San Diego today, Amitabh Bachchan sir. Can’t wait for all of our veterans to see the amazing frame of Project K.”

With a sneak peek, the makers of the film revealed the official title of the film, which is Kalki 2898 AD. It will replace the working title of Project K. The teaser shows a world fighting a deadly war where the people are ruled by dark forces. There is violence and tyranny everywhere. It is a multilingual science-fiction film directed by Nag Ashwin. Produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, it marks the first collaboration between Deepika and Prabhas. The film is going to release in January next year.
