Aswini Dutt

Kalki 2898 AD starring Prabhas is one of the highly anticipated films of the year in Indian cinema. With its captivating genre and the talented director Nag Ashwin at the helm, this film has the potential to achieve worldwide success.

The producer Aswini Dutt spared no expense, investing around 500-600 crores in its creation.

In a position like this, any producer would be cautious not to upset an influential leader who could impact the film’s release and push him into losses.

However, long before the election results were announced, Aswini Dutt fearlessly voiced his concerns about the tyrannical government of YSRCP.

He openly criticized YS Jagan’s autocratic rule in Andhra Pradesh and confidently predicted that the alliance of TDP and Janasena would overthrow the YSRCP government, securing over 160 seats out of 175 and forming the new government in AP.

Aswini Dutt never wavered, even if his prediction turned out to be incorrect, and YS Jagan remained in power. He knew that Jagan could potentially halt the film’s release in Andhra Pradesh, causing substantial losses for such a high-budget production.

The film trade experts were skeptical of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s return to power. Given that Ashwin Dutt openly supported TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu and was known to be an adversary of Jagan, it seemed unlikely that the Andhra Pradesh chief minister would favor him.

Nevertheless, Aswini Dutt fearlessly faced these challenges like a man of steel, undeterred by those who believed that Kalki 2898 AD would never see the light of day due to his direct confrontation with Jagan. Aswini Dutt remained unfazed.

Now, with the Assembly election results revealing a decisive victory for the TDP alliance as predicted by Aswini Dutt, Kalki is set to release on record number of prints, along with special hikes and benefit shows, much to the delight of Aswini Dutt.

As they say, fortune favors the bold.
