Starring Kunal Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Dino Morea, Drashti Dhami, and others, ‘The Empire’ releases on 27th August 2021 on Disney+ Hotstar.
One of India’s biggest video-streaming platforms Disney+ Hotstar has joined hands with prolific. Filmmaker Nikkhil Advani of Emmay Entertainment to present the biggest show created in India.
Talking about the look, Dino Morea shared,
“The look for the show is something director Mitakshara & I worked on. We needed Shaibani Khan to be deadly, and from the feedback I’ve been getting, I think we have succeeded. Everyone who has seen the trailer so far has loved Shaibani Khan’s look. Comments like savagely sexy to delicious – quite interesting I’d say! “
Being compared to Ranveer Singh’s character look,
“Khilji is obviously a compliment, Ranveer looked & played that part beautifully.”
Director Mitakshara adds on Dino’s character,
“I feel animals are a great reference point for behaviourism. Their instincts are bang on. And so, I told Dino that he should study a Panther. Regal and subtle, patiently waiting for its prey and they attack without warning. And Dino understood that so well. He has done a great job and justice to the character.”
