Anjumm Shharma: “We would spend weeks with the action team, learning how to hold and fire different types of guns”


Mumbai, Oct 12: The road to power, a heart-warming friendship and the charm of the 60s, Disney+ Hostar’s upcoming power-packed series, Sultan Of Delhi has it all. Based on the book, Sultan of Delhi: Ascension by Arnab Ray, the series is produced by Reliance Entertainment and Directed by Milan Luthria and Co-Directed and Co-written by Suparn Verma. 

Re-imagining the charm of old India and creating a visual spectacle on-screen, Milan Luthria marks his OTT directorial debut with this larger than life mass entertainer, ‘Sultan Of Delhi” which is all set to release on 13th October 2023. The series stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Anjumm Shharma, veteran actor Vinay Pathak alongside Nishant Dahiya and the ladies Anupriya Goenka, Mouni Roy, Harleen Sethi and Mehreen Pirzada, making for a perfect ensemble cast.

Mehreen Pirzada : “My look was inspired by Audrey and Marilyn Monroe which made me feel very cool”. Learning how to use different types of guns requires great amount of understanding, concentration, practice and learning. 

Actor Anjumm Shharma shares his experience of training and using a gun during the shoot of Sultan Of Delhi as he said “Sometimes, we would spend weeks with the action team learning how to hold and fire different types of guns. We could not be shown as though we were formally trained to hold guns because the characters had to have a rough grip with the guns which we had to get right with multiple rehearsals. We would play around with dummy guns by tossing it or revolving it with our fingers to get a hang of it and be precise with the actions and movements while using the guns.”

Sultan of Delhi is set to stream, 13th October, 2023 onwards, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar
