Based on the tale of King Porus, who fought against Alexander, The Great to stop him from invading India, the show is said to have been made on a budget of Rs 500 crore. The trailer is grand and you can totally count on the fact that VFX is going to be amazing. It has been shot in Thailand and you would see that in the trailer.
Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil actor Lakshya Lalwani has been roped in to play the role of Porus, while Razia Sultan actor Rohit Purohit plays the role of Alexander. Isn't that a promising cast?
In the trailer, you will get to see some really awesome costumes which will give you the Greek vibe. The best part of the trailer was how it started describing India as a Golden Sparrow.
Talking about the show, director Siddharth Kumar Tewary earlier told a leading daily, "History is written by those who ruled, I like telling stories of inspirational characters. The channel wanted me to make a show that celebrates the golden age of India. That's when I thought about 'Porus', a story set around 350 BC — a time when India was the richest nation and was known as the Golden Sparrow. Our riches attracted many invaders and Alexander, the biggest conqueror in the world, set his eyes on us. It was Porus who stopped him from entering India, by waging a war on the banks of river Jhelum. This is the story of India's first defender. He may have lost the battle, but he won the war."
