It is based on Alex Rutherford's literary work 'Empire of the Moghul: Raiders from the North.' The story is about a young king facing challenges as a rampaging army and brutal enemies threaten his destiny, throne, and survival. Actor Kunal Kapoor said, “We have heard many stories about Babur and the Mughals, but very little about who they were, where they came from, and how they came into India. In this fictional take, this is a character with a lot of complexities, and that is what intrigued me as an actor. The trailer is just a small glimpse into the world of The Empire.”
The web series brings together India's finest talent, spectacular visuals, and a gripping narrative as the audience witnessed in the trailer. 'The Empire' was shot across multiple locations in India and Uzbekistan. It brings a spectacular and imposing experience studded with epic scenes of battlegrounds, stupendous forts, and vast landscapes. Showrunner Nikkhil Advani said, “The Empire is a dream project that I have nurtured for years. The narrative we are exploring is something none of the makers have ever attempted in the history of Indian entertainment and given this story a fictional and creative bent. It's overwhelming to see the trailer receive resounding praises and we hope that it makes for an unforgettable viewing experience.”
