It’s always a delight to watch storytellers and producers push the boundaries and attempt something never done before. Leading OTT player Disney+Hotstar has upped the gamble with a new eight-episode series titled ‘The Empire’ which promises to be a visual spectacle and change the game.
Starring Kunal Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Drashti Dhami, Dino Morea, Aditya Seal, Imaad Shah, Rahul Dev, and Sahher Bambba, ‘The Empire’ is a period-drama that brings back a fictional story from the bygone Mughal era. The series is based on writer Alex Rutherford’s book ‘Empire of the Moghuls’ first novel ‘Raiders from the North.
While the comparisons from Bollywood biggies ‘Jodha Akhbar’, ‘Padmaavat’, and ‘Baijrao Mastani’ are bound to happen, the trailer does manage to hold its own. Check it out:
‘The Empire’ has been produced by Nikkhil Advani and will be releasing on Disney+Hotstar on the 27th of August.
