WORLD'S MOST INFAMOUS DIAMOND KOHINOOR GETTING ITS OWN EPIC TV SAGA BASED ON A BOOK BY WILLIAM DALRYMPLE! SBS UNVEILS ITS MOST AMBITIOUS EPIC TV SERIES EVER NEW GOLD MOUNTAIN

  KOH-I-NOOR DIAMOND  
GETTING ITS OWN TV SERIES

Earlier this summer I announced that William Dalrymple's THE ANARCHY book on the rise of the East India company will be turned into a TVseries and now another of his books KOHINOOR: The History Of World's Most Infamous Diamond, written together with Anita Anand, will get a series adaptation too by 185 Carat Films from Mumbai! The book describes the winding true story of the Indian diamond, the 27th largest in the world, which is currently part of the British Crown Jewels. The precious stone changed hands between various factions in south and west Asia, until being ceded to Queen Victoria after the British annexation of the Punjab in 1849. The diamond has inspired much folklore over the decades and has become a
Dalrymple's Anarchy is also becoming a series
symbol of power as it passed from one royal to another. 
 
    This famous and cursed diamond wreaked untold devastation as it was viciously ripped from one royal hand to another. It has ended up in its final home, the Tower of London, after being gruesomely wrested from the hands of its last owner, a nine year old Maharaja. Television has never witnessed a historical story of this magnitude, where bloodshed, love, sex, intrigue, beauty and cruelty all come together to create a layered narrative. This story, rooted in South Asia and traversing countries like Afghanistan and Iran, has a unique international appeal. It is a timely story of greed, power and appropriation regardless of cost.
