The actress is known for her work in films like Ijaazat, Utsav and Gentleman
Contiloe Productions, which has given us a number of historical shows, including Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat is planning a biopic on the life of Maharaj Ranjit Singh. Actors Eijaz Khan and Sneha Wagh have reportedly been finalized to play the role of Ranjit Singh’s parents Maha Singh and Raj Kaur respectively.
Anuradha will play the role of his daai maa (nanny). It is a powerful author-backed role and the lady has said yes to it. She has also done the show Dekho Magar Pyaar Se on Star Plus. The show will air on Life OK, which already has a big show, Nagarjuna lined up to replace Piya Rangrezz.
The life of Maharaj Ranjit Singh has never been chronicled in film or TV. This project will perhaps be the first to throw light on the great Sikh warrior. The makers are yet to zero down on a leading man for the role.
Ranjit Singh’s legacy is a tremendous one. Known as a secular ruler, he was also a fearless warrior. His conquests made Punjab a huge kingdom encompassing parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Western Tibet. He also brought about reforms in the Sikh army, which had Hindus, Muslims and Europeans in high commands.
He was the one who gilded the upper floors of the Harmandir Sahib in gold giving it the name of Golden Temple.
