'Kalki 2898 AD' :  Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's transformation into Ashwatthama for Nag Ashwin's 'Kalki 2898 AD' is receiving widespread praise from fans and the industry.

Each day, he underwent a three-hour prosthetic session to achieve the desired look for the immortal character inspired by the Mahabharata. The transformation was crucial to depict Ashwatthama's age and wisdom effectively.


Several make-up artists dropped behind-the-scenes pictures showing Amitabh Bachchan's dramatic transformation for his role in the film.

Bachchan's transformation and the detailed costume design contribute significantly to bringing the epic narrative of "Kalki 2898 AD" to life.

Da MakeUp Lab's official Instagram handle posted pictures of the actor, captioning them, "Behold the transformation of Amitabh Bachchan Sir into Ashwatthama: a timeless legend brought to life by a legendary actor."


Just a couple of days back, make-up artist Karandeep Singh also shared some behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets of 'Kalki 2898 AD.'

Since the release of 'Kalki 2898 AD,' both fans and the film industry have been praising the performances and the entire team behind the movie. On Sunday night, Amitabh Bachchan, accompanied by his son Abhishek and friends, went out to watch the movie.

In a blog post, Big B shared several pictures from this outing and mentioned that it was the first time he watched 'Kalki' in theaters since its release. He attended a late-night show on Sunday. The photos captured the father-son duo enjoying the movie. Bachchan expressed his satisfaction with the experience, stating, "A Sunday of Sundays... the well-wishers at GOJ and then to Kalki with some friends to see on big screen... seeing the film for the first time... Had not been out for years... but so satisfying to be out to witness all the progress..."

The film, set in a dystopian future, required unique design elements for different settings, including the last surviving city of Kasi, the Complex, and Shambala.
