Amitabh Bachchan on why he couldn’t attend Project K launch
Recently, Big B has opened up on the reason he couldn’t attend San Diego Comic Con. On Saturday, the megastar took to his blog and wrote, “Alright .. so .. San Diego and K, the project .. a great moment for the film and the makers and all those that went there for the release of the first look for it .. I was pushed hard by Nagi Sir to come along, but work and medical restrictions have kept me away from many such occasions .. so .. but I must admit the first look was pretty darn good .. wasn’t it .. style, music, frames .. everything.”

Speaking about the film, he said, “And finally the reveal of K .. KALKI .. mythologically so important .. 2898 AD!! AD has been changed has it not? Yes .. AD, which I think was ‘anno domini’, meaning ‘in the year of the Lord’.. was changed to CE – common era .. and BC, became BCE – before common era! Why so .. have no idea .. it was related to the birth of Christ , before and after, hence .. but , each region in the World has its own year and month and named according to their calculated calendars.”
Speaking of Project K at Comic-Con, Amitabh Bachchan said that he had no idea about the same until Abhishek Bachchan, his son spoke to him about it. He said, “I must admit unabashedly that I had no idea what Comicon meant or was until I told Abhishek, or rather asked him what this is all about and he said .. with a shocked look on his face: ‘Dad .. Comicon ? this is a huge deal ‘. And today as I partake in a Zoom call at the release I cannot but be in bewildered admiration for Nagi Ashwin and his team for putting together an astonishing film.”
The film stands directed by Nag Ashwin and is slated to release next year. Check out the first glimpse if you haven’t yet!
