'THE BLACK PRINCE' MOVIE
ON THE LAST KING OF PUNJAB
If you thought The Viceroy's House will be the only period set movie we will watch this year with the story going on in India, you were wrong: here's another one! Ready to open up in cinemas in USA, Canada, Australia, India and UK July 21st is THE BLACK PRINCE, a movie based on the true story of the last King of Punjab, one of the most powerful and prosperous Kingdoms of the 19th century before it was ruthlessly annexed by Britain!

THE BLACK PRINCE is a story of Queen Victoria (Amanda Root) and the Last King of Punjab, Maharajah Duleep Singh (Satinder Sartaaj). His character as it evolves, torn between two cultures and facing constant dilemmas as a result. His relationship with Queen Victoria will be the most impactful relationship in the film, the Queen representing the English culture he was drawn into. The Black Prince begins a lifelong struggle to regain his Kingdom. It takes him on an extraordinary journey across the world.

THE TRAGIC MAHARAJAH
Produced by Brillstein Entertainment (12 Years A Slave), THE BLACK PRINCE, was written and directed by Kavi Raz carefully capturing the tragic, yet fascinating true story and legacy of Maharajah Duleep Singh, providing a visual narrative of one of India’s most noble kings, and his fragile relationship with, Queen Victoria, who was Godmother to his children. Jason Flemyng also stars as Dr. Login, his foster parent!

DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
The King, Maharajah Duleep Singh, was placed on the throne at the age of five only to be robbed of his throne by a bloody treason at the hands of trusted courtiers. He was then torn from his mother and taken to England by the British at age fifteen. While in England, he was introduced to Queen Victoria, who took an immediate liking to him, calling him THE BLACK PRINCE. He was indoctrinated into Christianity and baptised, changing his life forever! Maharajah Duleep Singh died in 1893 at the age of 55 years, a lonely pauper in a hotel in Paris! The movie will also mention the historically significant and priceless Kohinoor diamond, which was purportedly gifted by a young 13 year old Maharajah to Queen Victoria in a ceremony held in 1850, at Buckingham Palace, London. His life story filled with faith later on inspired India's fight for independence!
