The film starts in the Mahabharat era and extends to 2898 AD, based on the Hindu belief of Kali Yug. It features Prabhas as Bhairava, Amitabh Bachchan as the immortal Ashwatthama, and Kamal Haasan plays the lead antagonist.

One popular theory suggests Deepika is playing Sumati, Kalki’s mother. Fans point to a scene where Ashwatthama mentions she is carrying a divine child, and a bounty notification names her as SUM-80, hinting at Sumati. This theory suggests Prabhas is not Kalki but might play dual roles as Bhairava and Kalki.

Another theory posits that Bhairava is a mentor to Kalki, aligning with Vishnu’s avatars’ connection to Shiva.
