The trailer then showcases that the distant land of Kashi now has all the amenities that humans once enjoyed—like food, water, and shelter—while people from faraway lands are seen suffering and deprived of these necessities. Everyone is seen bowing down to the supreme leader, played by Saswata Chatterjee, who considers himself above all beings.

    The trailer then introduces us to Deepika Padukone, who is carrying a child destined to change the future. Amitabh Bachchan’s Ashwatthama is there to help Deepika’s character.

The intriguing trailer presents a massive reimagining of the Mahabharata set in a dystopian era. We also get a sneak peek of actress Shobana, and Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan as Kali in the glimpse.
