MUMBAI, India—May 30, 2024—After a spectacular launch of the fifth hero, Bujji, the first-ever life-sized futuristic vehicle in Indian cinema from the sci-fi epic, Kalki 2898 AD, the makers are set to give the audience an unprecedented introduction into the film’s world through a two-episode animated series, B&B: Bujji & Bhairava. Exclusively premiering on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide on May 31 in Telugu, English, Hindi, and Spanish, the animated series features Prabhas’ character, Bhairava, and his best friend, the futuristic vehicle, Bujji. 

The pioneering series is another milestone for one of the highly anticipated films of 2024, which releases worldwide on June 27, making it the first Indian film to launch an animated prelude. Recreating his likeness in an animated form and lending his voice to his impressive character, Prabhas’ Bhairava and Bujji in the series give an unfiltered glimpse into the origins of their friendship, which evolves into an unbreakable bond. Creating an extraordinary visual spectacle complemented by an unparalleled audio experience, the brilliant animation uses cutting-edge technology to bring to life a captivating story of friendship and adventure. 

Sharing his thoughts on the same, C. Ashwani Dutt, producer of Kalki 2898 AD and B&B: Bujji & Bhairava stated, “Vyjayanthi Movies has completed 50 glorious years. All these years, we have done larger-than-life spectacle movies like Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari and small-scale movies like Yevade Subramanyam, which have always created a benchmark for Telugu cinema. My daughters have worked on television, digital films, and series. For the first time ever, ‘B&B’, an animation series, a prelude to Kalki 2898 AD, is being launched even before the release of the film. This is the most innovative idea, and I am glad it is happening in Vyjayanthi. I am quite excited about this and am certain that it will entertain audiences of all ages.”

Adding to the same, director Nag Ashwin further said, “Bujji & Bhairava is a pure work of joy, just exploring the story of these two characters in Kalki that I enjoyed writing. It introduces audiences to the world and allows us to know more about these characters than the movie allows.”

“We are thrilled to exclusively stream and showcase B&B: Bujji & Bhairava on Prime Video. The two-episode animated series is a fitting precursor to the expansive and enthralling world of Kalki 2898 AD, a magnum opus that promises to leave the audience awestruck,” said Manish Menghani, director, content licensing, Prime Video India. “At Prime Video, we take immense pride in the synergistic collaborations and partnerships, such as this one with Vyjayanthi Movies, that endow us with the ability to build an enviable slate of content that includes the likes of Sita Ramam, Jathi Ratnalu, Mahanati, and many more. B&B: Bujji & Bhairava builds on the enormous scale and fandom amassed by Kalki 2898 AD and its star-studded ensemble cast, making it an exciting prelude that will further accentuate the experience of our customers while getting them involved and invested in the film, even before they watch it.”

B&B: Bujji & Bhairava is a fascinating prelude to Kalki 2898 AD, which features a stellar cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and Disha Patani in key roles, made waves after its groundbreaking debut at San Diego Comic-Con last year, earning massive global acclaim. Directed by Nag Ashwin and Produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, Kalki 2898 AD is a multilingual film, a mythology-inspired sci-fi spectacle set in the future which will release worldwide on June 27, 2024.
