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.”
The Empire brings alive a spectacular and imposing experience studded with epic scenes of battlegrounds, marvelous forts, and vast landscapes.
