Based on the real life story of the last King of Punjab, the project will be directed by Kavi Raz and features the acting debut of acclaimed singer-poet Satinder Sartaaj.
Brillstein Entertainment Partners executive Jai Khanna will co-produce The Black Prince, described as the tragic yet fascinating story about the last king of the state of Punjab (in north India), Maharaja Duleep Singh. Written and to be directed by L.A.-based Indian filmmaker Kavi Raz, Prince will feature the acting debut of one of Punjab’s most acclaimed singer-poets, Satinder Sartaaj.
The bilingual English-Hindi project is budgeted at about $5 million and is out to potential producing partners in India. Set in India and the U.K., Prince is eyeing a late September start date. Brillstein will help shepherd the various international cast, crew and production logistics, as well as begin to secure international sales.
