Mumbai, Sep 22 (IANS): The trailer of the period action series ‘Sultan of Delhi’ was unveiled on Friday and it shows the struggle for power in the intense web of deceit and manipulation where relationships get tested.
The show, directed by Milan Luthria, is based on the book, ‘Sultan of Delhi: Ascension’ by Arnab Ray, and stars an ensemble cast of Tahir Raj Bhasin, Anjumm Shharma, veteran actor Vinay Pathak and Nishant Dahiya in pivotal roles, alongside Anupriya Goenka, Mouni Roy, Harleen Sethi and Mehreen Pirzada in key characters.
‘Sultan Of Delhi’ follows the story of Arjun Bhatia (Tahir Raj Bhasin), who works with Delhi’s biggest illegal arms dealer, Jagan Seth (Vinay Pathak). In a high stakes battle for power, Arjun is tested time and again by those around him.
Talking about his character and the show, Tahir Raj Bhasin said: “The journey of portraying Arjun Bhatia proved to be a very exciting multifaceted challenge. Arjun Bhatia serves as the central character of the series who evolves drastically as the narrative unfolds. Playing the graph of this transformation was both compelling and exhilarating. Arjun's character helped me push my boundaries as an actor in a very different way.”
He further mentioned: “It was a constant balance between a physically challenging part that needed stunt and weapons training and a nuanced emotional journey that was unique to his individual relationships with other characters in the script. A very special dynamic was the friendship I developed with Anjumm Shharma. Our chemistry in the series echoes the timeless camaraderie of iconic duos like Jai and Veeru, and I am eagerly anticipating the audience's response to it.”
Talking about the series, Director Milan Luthria said: “I never expected such a thunderous response to our teaser. Many people called me asking if it was my next film. My team and I have worked very hard on ‘Sultan Of Delhi’, as I didn’t want to leave any stone unturned for my first outing on the web. The attempt has been to achieve a clutter breaker, a page turner of sorts. I hope the audience picks that up and enjoys it to the fullest.”
Produced by Reliance Entertainment, ‘Sultan of Delhi’ will stream from October 13 on Disney+ Hotstar.
