  • Like any other film, makers determine whether to renew a movie based on various factors such as box office collection, mass reception as well as viewership numbers, production costs, and more.
  • As of now, there’s a possibility of the renewal of Kalki 2898 AD but we are weighing the possibility of Part 2.


The genre of post-apocalyptic fiction is science-fiction is barely explored in Indian Cinema but the 2024 film – Kalki 2898 AD changes that. The film stars big names like Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas and Deepika Padukone in pivotal roles and narrates the story of a post-apocalyptic city in India where evil has taken over the world. 

The film was initially looked at from a sceptical lens but as soon as it was released, fans of Indian flicks from all over the world raved about the film, making it the best-received movie of the year so far. 

After watching this action-thriller, you may be wondering if this post-apocalyptic sci-fi film will be coming back with a second instalment. Here’s what we know:

What is Kalki 2898 AD about?

Kalki 2898 AD narrates the story of a city named Kasi that has gone into ruins, 800+ years after the present time. An evil ruler like Supreme Yaksin takes over the world to leave the poor in ruins while the rich enjoy the luxuries of the new world. In this evil world, the people who still believe in God are hoping for a miracle in the form of a reincarnation of Lord Krishna. 

Meanwhile, an ancient warrior named Ashwattama wakes up from hibernation after thousands of years to protect the unborn child that could be the reincarnation of the lord as evil forces try to kill the child. 

We have ongoing coverage of the film on the website, including a movie review and an ending explained article. You can find them HERE.

Will there be a sequel to Kalki 2898 AD?

If you, like us, sat through the end of the film, you know that Kalki 2989 AD ends with a cliffhanger and a “To Be Continued” note. Based on this ending, we know for a fact that Kalki 2989 AD will be renewed for a second part.

There is also a direct hint from the filmmaker – Kalki 2989 AD who reveals his interest in trying to expand the Kalki Cinematic Universe. In terms of a release date, expect around a year turn-around or more for the sequel of this film. So, we may as well expect Kalki 2 to be released in 2025 or later. We will be sure to keep this page updated once the makers announce a release date for the sequel.

What could happen in Kalki 2898 AD 2?

From the way things end in Kalki 2989 AD, Bhairave kidnaps SUM-80 to take her to Supreme Yaksin himself with the hope of getting a chance to live inside the complex. It is also clear that Bhairava possesses an aura that resembles that of the warrior Karna. We can expect Karna to return and he can go back to helping his old friend – Ahswattama.

From the ending, it is also clear that Supreme Yaksin is back to being his older self. Now, Yaksin could try to hunt SUM-80 down to find the powerful serum from her unborn child. This could all also change if SUM-80 ends up delivering the baby before Bhairava can take her to Yaksin. This leaves hope for the reincarnation of Krishna to protect the humans from Yaksin.

For now, though, we’ll have to wait and see what’s in store for us next.
