Nag Ashwin’s "Kalki 2898 AD" is garnering attention not only for the performances of its lead actors - Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kamal Haasan - but also for its intriguing cameos. Among these, the cameo of Lord Krishna has sparked considerable curiosity. Unlike other characters in the film, Lord Krishna's face is never fully revealed; only his body and hair are shown, and his face is consistently depicted in silhouette. This mystery led fans on a quest to identify the actor behind the enigmatic portrayal.

Adding to the layered portrayal of Krishna, another actor contributed significantly, albeit in a different capacity. The voice of Krishna, which captivated many viewers, was provided by Arjun Das. When a fan praised Arjun Das on X (formerly Twitter) for his voice work in "Kalki 2898 AD," he responded with humility, attributing the credit to director Nag Ashwin and producer Swapna Dutt. This collaborative effort between Krishnakumar and Arjun Das brought a unique dimension to the character of Lord Krishna, enhancing the film's narrative depth.

Krishnakumar, who debuted with the 2010 film "Kadhalagi," had taken a hiatus from acting to work as the artistic director of The Little Theatre Group. He returned to cinema in 2020 with the Amazon Prime anthology film "Putham Pudhu Kaalai." His portrayal of Chaitanya, Suriya’s friend in "Soorarai Pottru," further elevated his profile in the industry. In 2022, he appeared in Dhanush’s "Maaran," continuing his ascent in the Tamil film industry.

Kalki 2898 AD hit theatres on June 27 and was released in multiple languages. The film received generally positive reviews, although some critics found the first half of the movie lacking. Despite this, the film's conclusion sets the stage for a potential sequel, leaving audiences eager for more. The innovative storytelling, combined with the stellar performances and intriguing cameos, ensures that "Kalki 2898 AD" remains a topic of discussion in the cinematic world.
