While there’s no news about who will bag the lead part, here are few actors whom we feel can bring alive the great Emperor on the tube!
After the much-lauded show on the life of Emperor Ashoka Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Contiloe Entertainment is producing a series on the life of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The life of the founder of the Sikh Empire was chronicled once before on Doordarshan by Raj Babbar on a finite TV series. This one promises to be a big budget extravaganza and will be aired on Life Ok. Maharaja Ranjit Singh was a great administrator, a secularist, a fearless warrior and a kind human being. It is a role with varied shades and one actors would love to dig into. Here are a few actors whom we feel will do justice to the role…
One of the seasoned actors on TV, Iqbal has fantastic screen presence. He is quite fluent with Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu, which is a huge asset. The Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do actor has a great combo of looks, acting chops and person. And he has never done a historical show before.
Maharaja Ranjit Singh was a tall man with great personality. One of the actors who fit into these physical attributes is Siddhant Karnick. The handsome guy has a theatre background and is academic enough to research into the role. Post Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani, would you like to see him in a biopic.
Tall, lean with slightly droopy eyes, Barun matches the looks of the fearless warrior. He is a Punjabi so language is not an issue. Barun has said that he wants to do diverse roles and his popularity will help the show immensely. Don’t you think so?
Kunal Karan Kapoor
He literally lived the character of Mohan in Na Bole Tumne Maine Kuch Kaha. After that stellar outing, Kunal has been missing from the small screen. A fabulous actor, we feel he will do complete justice to the layered character of the Sikh ruler.
With his height and chiseled features, he also matches the look of the valiant Sikh warrior. Rishabh also has an on-screen intensity, which is quite effective.
