The makers of Prabhas’ Kalki 2898 AD have released the first single from the film. Titled ‘Bhairava Anthem’, the video song features the actor along with singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh in Punjabi outfits.

The makers took to social media to share the song.

The two-minute-44-second-long video features the two of them moving to the peppy beats of the song along with the AI character Bujji’s futuristic vehicle which Prabhas’ character Bhairava drives around in the film. The song’s Tamil and Telugu versions were also released along with the Hindi version.

Kumaar pens the Hindi version, voiced by Diljit Dosanjh along with Vijaynarain. The Telugu version is crooned by Deepak Blue, Diljit Dosanjh, and Santhosh Narayanan with lyrics by Ramajogayya Sastry and Kumaar. The Tamil version brings Vivek and Kumaar’s lines to life by Santhosh Narayanan and Diljit Dosanjh. The film’s music by Santhosh Narayanan.

Helmed by Nag Ashwin, Kalki 2898 AD also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Deepika Padukone. The rest of the cast includes Disha Patani, Pasupathy, Anna Ben, Saswata Chatterjee and Rajendra Prasad.

Kalki 2898 AD will be released worldwide on June 27 in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and other languages. Earlier this month, the production house rolled out two episodes of an animated web series Bujji & Bhairava, a prequel to the film, on Amazon Prime Video.
