not
only
been

to
the

but
has
also
earned
her
widespread

as

fire
scene
being

scene.

From

Deepika

walking

gone

since
the
film’s
release

has
resonated
deeply
with

The
striking
visual
has
led
many
to
dub
her
the
new
“Khaleesi,”
drawing
comparisons
to
the
iconic
character
from
“Game
of
Thrones.”

In
a
recent
interview,
Director
Nag
Ashwin
himself
called
the
scene
his
favorite
in
the
entire
film.
He
said,
“The
visual
of
that
scene
and
the
way
Deepika
holds
herself

the
poise.
I
told
her
that
if
everything
goes
well,
this
is
a
movie
poster
that
will
live
longer
than
you
and
me
probably.”

Nag

discussions
during

writing
process
underlines
her
character’s
significance.
“She
is
the
most
important
part
of
the
story.
We
had
a
lot
of
discussions
on
it
when
we
were
writing
as
well.
I
think
the
simplest
answer
that
we
arrived
at
was
whose
character
do
you
remove
and
the
story
does
not
exist?
And
that
became
Deepika’s
character.
Because
if
you
remove
her
character,
there
is
no
story.
There
is
no
Kalki”
he
added.

These
statements
from
the
director
reaffirm
what
fans
have
been
feeling
since
the
film’s

Deepika
Padukone
is
not
just
a
part
of
“Kalki
2898
AD”

she
is
its
very
essence.
As
“Kalki
2898
AD”
continues
to
captivate
viewers,
Deepika’s
role
will
undoubtedly
be
remembered
as
the
heart
and
soul
of
this
blockbuster
hit.
