Earlier, while talking about the series, Milan said in a statement that Sultan of Delhi is the first web series he has created. Set in the sexy 60's, it has an enduring, pacy approach filled with elements of glamour, action, music, punchy one-liners, and entertainment. The series follows the journey of Arjun Bhatia (Tahir Raj Bhasin) and examines a tale of ambition, treachery, bravery, and the ultimate struggle for power. Milan always endeavours to provide audiences with an entertaining experience through his stories, and Sultan of Delhi is one such beautiful journey. He is thrilled to be collaborating with Disney+ Hotstar to bring this story to life.
Reliance Entertainment produces the series, which Milan Luthria co-directs and co-writes with Suparn Verma and is based on Arnab Ray's book Sultan of Delhi: Ascension. Milan Luthria makes his OTT directorial debut with Sultan of Delhi, a larger-than-life series scheduled for release on October 13, 2023. The series has been co-directed and co-written by Suparn S. Varma.
The series reimagines the allure of old India and creates a visual spectacle on screen.
