The trailer of Bujji & Bhairava was released by the makers on Thursday. Featuring an animated avatar of Prabhas, the two-episode series is a prelude to the film Kalki 2898 AD which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Disha Patani. It is directed by Nag Ashwin.

The trailer gives a glimpse into setting up the world for the Kalki universe. It shows the developing friendship between Bhairava and his robotic vehicle Bujji. The animation uses cutting-edge technology to bring to life a story of friendship and adventure.

Speaking about the series, director Nag Ashwin said in a statement, “Bujji & Bhairava is a pure work of joy, just exploring the story of these two characters in Kalki that I enjoyed writing. It introduces audiences to the world and allows us to know more about these characters than the movie allows.”

Adding to the same, producer C. Ashwani Dutt said in the press release, “Vyjayanthi Movies has completed 50 glorious years. All these years, we have done larger-than-life spectacle movies like Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari (1990) and small-scale movies like Yevade Subramanyam (2015), which have always created a benchmark for Telugu cinema. My daughters have worked on television, digital films, and series. For the first time ever, ‘B&B’, an animation series, a prelude to Kalki 2898 AD, is being launched even before the release of the film. This is the most innovative idea, and I am glad it is happening in Vyjayanthi. I am quite excited about this and am certain that it will entertain audiences of all ages.”

Manish Menghani, director, content licensing, Prime Video India, said in the statement, “B&B: Bujji & Bhairava builds on the enormous scale and fandom amassed by Kalki 2898 AD and its star-studded ensemble cast, making it an exciting prelude that will further accentuate the experience of our customers while getting them involved and invested in the film, even before they watch it.”

B&B: Bujji & Bhairava is produced by Vyjayanthi Movies and is set to release on Prime Video on May 31. Meanwhile the film, Kalki 2898 AD will release worldwide on June 27 this year.
