Amitabh Bachchan Expresses Frustration With His Phone During Kalki 2898 AD Trailer Release: ‘Ready to Throw It Out…’

In Kalki 2898 AD, Amitabh Bachchan portrays Ashwatthama, distinguished by a shiny gemstone on his forehead. His promising performance in the trailer has garnered widespread praise.

Amitabh Bachchan has been generating significant buzz for his impressive portrayal of the battered and bruised Ashwatthama in Nag Ashwin’s Kalki 2898 AD, which also features Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Kamal Haasan, and Disha Patani. The trailer, released on Monday, has garnered immense appreciation from netizens for Amitabh’s intense efforts and dedication to his demanding role, especially at the age of 81.

However, while sharing the trailer of Kalki 2898 AD on his blog, Amitabh revealed his frustration with his phone. He wrote, “Trying desperately to fix my phone… and what was set before suddenly changed so tried to get help from all quarters and failed… so frustrating… Was wanting to have English and Hindi typing, by typing in English, a Hindi word and it comes out on Devanagari… but despite several hours of following links and experiments, I am now very close to – BREAKING MY PHONE, BY THROWING IT OUT OF THE WINDOW!!!” He later clarified, “no no no… no such luck… just letting off steam.”

Amitabh also mentioned that he’s contemplating which project to take on after Kalki 2898 AD. He noted that, in the past, actors didn’t have guidance on selecting good scripts, whereas the current generation benefits from numerous agents and consultants assisting them in choosing their next projects.

“So, I’ve been spending time with prospective script readings and exploring various ideas and thoughts to decide what to do next after KALKI 2898 AD and Section 84 IPC. It’s about understanding the insights from market experts—the ‘geniuses’ who analyze and provide input on what’s trending, what cinema audiences are enjoying, etc. Agents, management experts, and professionals now guide these decisions. Back in my day, we didn’t have these resources. We simply looked for the next job to make a living and keep our homes running. Now, the next generation operates differently. They think and plan strategically, while I still just look for the next job to ensure our ‘kitchens can run’.”
