Applause Entertainment's Sameer Nair who calls himself a big fan of revisionist narratives of history.

Mr Nair stated,"Our history books have been written by victors and often paint very two-dimensional pictures about past empires. When Abhimanyu Singh (Contiloe Pictures) and I first discussed this idea, we immediately moved away from a typical historical to a darker and edgier version of the Mughal empire, a version in which symbolically the Taj is more a monument of blood, than a monument of love."

Abhimanyu Singh, who has been credited for producing a series of historicals for the small screen, says the new series will show viewers the historic journey through a fresh lens.

"It will take viewers on a historic journey showing them an unseen perspective of this illustrious dynasty which lead to their rise as the greatest empire in medieval times and the quest for power, within it, that finally lead to its downfall."
