Prime Video also released a 52-second video in which a bunch of children can be seen asking Bhairava how long they have to wait as summer’s almost over. They also ask him why he’s welding all the time. He asks Bujji to show the kids the ‘surprise,’ and she shows them a glimpse of their adventures in animated style. This lines up with a leaked picture that has been doing rounds on X, widely shared by fans, of an animated Bujji and Bhairava, which fans had guessed would be used for the film’s promotions.

Bujji’s grand reveal

Nag, Prabhas and the rest of the team recently held an event in Hyderabad to reveal the ‘body’ of Bujji to the audience after giving a glimpse of her ‘brain’ in the robotic form. The event saw Prabhas drive Bujji into a massive arena and show her off. Actor Naga Chaitanya and F1 racer Narain Karthikeyan also took the custom-made vehicle out for a ride, giving their first impressions of it. Early on Monday, the makers also released the theme music from Bujji’s teaser.
