The road to power, a heart-warming friendship and the charm of the 60s, Disney+ Hostar’s upcoming power-packed series, 'Sultan Of Delhi' has it all. Based on the book, Sultan of Delhi: Ascension by Arnab Ray, the series is produced by Reliance Entertainment and Directed by Milan Luthria and Co-Directed and Co-written by Suparn Verma.
The series stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Anjum Sharma, veteran actor Vinay Pathak alongside Nishant Dahiya and the ladies Anupriya Goenka, Mouni Roy, Harleen Sethi and Mehreen Pirzada, making for a perfect ensemble cast. When we think of a hero from the 60s era, well we can only think of a muscular, young man with a sense of rhythm and style that will grab the audience's eyeballs.
Versatile actor, Tahir Raj Bhasin effortlessly slips into the role of the young, handsome and passionate Arjun Bhatia. From action sequences, to driving vintage cars, he will be seen acing it all. With a perfect mustache, perfectly combed hair and solid jackets and turtle-necks, he is here to sweep you off your feet.
Talking about his character in the series, Tahir Raj Bhasin said, “One of the most exciting things about working with Milan Luthria is seeing how much detail he puts into planning, the style and the looks. I remember we spent weeks just getting the hair style right for Arjun Bhatia. Celebrity hair stylist Hakim Aalim was called in and after a few trials and hair cuts we hit upon a perfect look . The costume designers Jia and Malika did endless rounds of costume trials to get jeans with the right vintage cut and the right vintage jackets."
He added, "Arjun’s outfits across the series were basic solid colors like black, white and shades of brown which allowed me to blend in perfectly with the retro era of the 60’s. For inspiration James Dean and Robert Redford were major international influences. Closer to home Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmender ji were iconic benchmarks of style from the 60’s and 70’s. The role allowed me to sport many vintage items like classic watches, shoes and more, something I really enjoyed”
'Sultan of Delhi' is set to stream, 13th October, 2023 onwards, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.ALSO READ: "I had zero connections. I’m not from any film family" - Tahir Raj Bhasin
