The Black Prince is written and directed by Kavi Raj and features Shabana Azmi, Satinder Sartaaj, Jason Flemyng, Amanda Root, Keith Duffy, David Essex, Rup Magon and Sophie Stevens.
It is a story of a life of Maharana Duleep Singh, one of the important chapters in the colonial history that has remained untouched and unknown by many Indians who do not hail from the state of Punjab. Life wasn’t all royally exquisite for Punjab’s last ruler Maharaja Duleep Singh, youngest son of the mighty Maharaja Ranjit Singh. He became a king at the age of five, separated from his mother at the age of 11, and was deported to England at the age of 15. Maharaja Duleep Singhs story of trials, tribulations, and tragedies is the least royal kind of life you would want. In the land of her majesty, Maharaja Duleep Singh grew up under the patronage of Queen Victoria, however, this little kid posed a threat to the British Empire in India.
The movie is produced by Brillstein Entertainment Partners (Academy Award Winning film 12 Years a Slave), The Black Prince, is a period drama written and directed by Hollywood filmmaker Kavi Raz which is filmed widely across the UK and India.
The Black Prince has been shot extensively in England, with some scenes in Bikaner. The film is slated to be released internationally in cinemas on 21st July 2017.
