It is a type of film Karan has never done before, and he also told that they are not trying to create anything new but portray the real history of what happened in the battle based on facts.
It is a new type of role for most of the cast except Ranveer who has portrayed these kinds of characters in Bajirao Mastaani and Padmaavat.
“It’s like the K3G of the Mughal era. But it’s more extreme; there is more betrayal. It has the tropes of court politics. It’s so rich in texture,” Karan said in a statement.
According to reports, characters of the cast has been revealed, and I have to say that only Sky is the limit.
