The first look of movie 'The Black Prince' has been revealed today. The film takes a deeper dive into the realm of Indian history and narrates the story of Maharaja Duleep Singh, the last ruler of India's richest Kingdom. With the release of its first look, let's take another sneak peak into the battle of two kingdoms.
Shabana Azmi will be seen donning the character of Duleep’s mother Maharani Jindan. Maharani Jind Kaur was regent of the Sikh Empire from 1843 until 1846. She was the youngest wife of the first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire, Ranjit Singh, and the mother of the last Maharaja, Duleep Singh.
Indian Punjabi Singer, songwriter, and poet, Satinder Sartaaj will be making his debut with 'The Black Prince'.
Maharaja Duleep Singh, also known as the ‘Black Prince’ in the Sikh history was the last heir of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the only son of Maharani Jindan.
At the age of 15 he became the first ever Royal to be converted to Christianity. He was later taken to England.

The Director of the film Kavi Raz has very delicately balanced these chapters of Punjab’s history and has made sure to keep across a perspective that is not bookish but is close to what actually happened to ‘The Black Prince – Maharaja Duleep Singh’
