Mukesh Khanna compares Kalki 2898 AD with Shaktiman, says – My film will be better and bigger

Nag Ashwin’s Kalki 2898 is making a splash at the box office. The film is getting good response. Inspired by Hindu scriptures and set in the year 2898 AD, the film stars Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Kamal Haasan in lead roles. Mukesh Khanna has seen the film and compared his film Shaktimaan to the film, which he has spoken about many times. Although Mukesh feels that he is scared of the grand scene of the film, he hopes that Shaktiman will also succeed.

Why is Mukesh afraid?

As for expectations about Shaktiman, Mukesh said, ‘To be honest, I was a little scared when I saw the scale of the project. I am not someone who can confidently say that I can do this. I wonder if I can handle something of this magnitude. Such a project requires a lot of hard work and a dedicated team. Thousands of people work hard behind films like Avatar and Baahubali. Everything from storyboarding to scoring is taken care of.

Can’t be strong without my involvement

He continued, ‘I wish I could bring this level of dedication and resources to Shattiman as well. It remains to be seen what Sony and I will create. I am powerful though. I have maintained this character for over 40 years. How can they make it without my involvement? I have converted Shaktimaan into a disco drama. How can I approach this differently?

Shaktiman will be a hit

Mukesh wrote on his Instagram post, ‘Will Shaktiman be better than Kalki? It can happen and it definitely will. Behind it is the South Indian film industry. We have Sony International. Kalki is yesterday’s story. Shaktimaan is a story of today and forever. The present is more powerful than the future because it is in our hands.

Let us tell you that Kalki 2898 AD has earned 600 crore rupees globally in the first week itself. The film has been made in a budget of 600-700 crore rupees, which is being liked not only in the country but also abroad.
