2898 AD, with names like Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan and Deepika Padukone is one of the most anticipated films of 2024, it is directed by

and is backed by Vyjayanthi Movies. The makers of the film got a jolt a few days back when an unseen image of Prabhas from a key scene of the film was leaked online. This gave out a major clue about Prabhas’ role in the film and given the strong fan following of the actor, it was even widely shared.

It is being reported that the makers were able to locate the source of the leak, which was an employee of the VFX company hired by the makers. The employee has been asked to leave and legal action is also being planned on the VFX company.
And to make it even more difficult, the makers of the film have issued a public notice, warning of criminal actions against unauthorised individuals sharing any materials of Kalki 2898 AD, including any scenes/images/footage/music/stills.
