Based on the real life story of the last King of Punjab, the project will be directed by Kavi Raz and features the acting debut of acclaimed singer-poet Satinder Sartaaj.
The film follows the story of the last Sikh Maharaja — the son of the powerful ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh — who was placed on the throne at the age of 5, after the death of his father. In 1849, Punjab was annexed to British India.
The young prince was removed from the throne and eventually sent off to England. His attempts to return to India and reclaim his kingdom were thwarted by the British. He ended up a pauper, dying alone in a Paris hotel in 1893.
