Two Hollywood films inspired Kalki 2898 AD

In an interview with Zoom, director Nag Ashwin claimed that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars were his inspiration for Kalki 2898 AD. He said, “We grew up watching Marvel films. I would say Guardians of the Galaxy was more of an influence than Iron Man. Definitely, Star Wars is a huge influence. I love Star Wars, so that is subconsciously a part of my aesthetic.”
