At the 'Kalki 2898 ADevent in hyderabad, nag ashwin revealed Anand Mahindra's contribution to the film.

"Bujji, when it comes to the name, might sound small but it’s very special. Making a film itself is tough and making something like this is the toughest. Bujji was the toughest to make amongst all. Back then, I tweeted to anand Mahindra. He activated his team.  They passed us on to jayam Motors in CoimbatoreIt’s a very experimental racing car-building company. It requires huge research to build a car with such featuresThis is something we pulled off here. The car is massiveWe customized and built it step by step, all for kalki and Bhairava. I want to thank the whole team of mahindrathe team of Jayam Motors, and team Kalki.”Ashwin said at the event.

For those unaware, Nag Ashwin reached out to Anand mahindra a few years ago on X asking for help to build Bujji.

Our team in mahindra Research Valley in chennai helped the kalki team realize its vision for a futuristic vehicle by simulating the powertrain configuration, architecture, and performance.”

“The vehicle runs on two mahindra e-motors powering the rear spherical wheel! And Jayem Automotives put it all together…Let the games begin…” He added.

 Prabhas also spoke about Bujji at the launch event in hyderabad on wednesday evening and said, "My director tortured me for three years. I just wanted to come to the event casually. But Nag Ashwin made me perform these stuntsIt was his idea to tease fans that I have ‘someone special’ to build curiosity too. Bujji is very special. If you ask me to choose, I will pick Bujji’s body over its brain. Like all of you, I’m eagerly waiting to watch the movie. I hope you liked Bujji's teaser.”
