To prepare for a role, one must live the character and it gets challenging to do so especially when the backdrop of the show is from the past era. Tahir Raj Bhasin shares how he lived the character before the shooting began for Sultan of Delhi
Talking about the same, Tahir Raj Bhasin said, “To start with I read the original book to get a sense of the overall story. To understand the political and economic state of the country at the time I watched a few documentaries that really put the state of Delhi after the partition in perspective. After our costume trials were done I took the vintage jeans and boots so I could literally walk in the character's shoes. I used old spice for weeks before the shoot because I associate its scent with vintage nostalgia. I also had a playlist of classic rock from the 60’s and 70’s.”
Sultan of Delhi is set to stream, 13th October, 2023 onwards, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar
