The eight-episode internet collection will see the auteur share directorial duties with Mitakshara Kumar, who served as his assistant director on Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Padmaavat (2018) earlier than helming The Empire (2021).

However, given his unparalleled model of presenting dance numbers, SLB has taken the accountability of directing each music. Each episode could have a music, bearing his signature model of grandeur. The compositions are prepared,” says a supply.
