Biopic On Kashmir’s Last Hindu Queen Kota Rani On Big Screen Soon
Mumbai: According to reports, a biopic on Kashmir’s last Hindu queen Kota Rani will be brought on the big screen soon. The project will be jointly bankrolled by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films.
The 14th-century queen of Kashmir was said to be an exceptionally beautiful woman. She was also a great administrator and an able military strategist.
“It’s a matter of great surprise that as Indians we don’t know enough or at all about a personality like Kota Rani. It would be no exaggeration to compare her to Cleopatra and a lot of things that we are witnessing today are directly related to the story of Kota Rani,” said Madhu Mantena who is co-producing the venture.
“Her life was extremely dramatic and she is perhaps one of the most able woman ruler that India produced. It would be a shame not to know about her,” he added.
Sibashish Sarkar, Group CEO, Reliance Entertainment, shared that the primary aim is to make the remarkable story of Kota Rani reach as many people as possible.
“Her character has many shades but without a doubt she is one of the tallest female characters to have come out of our country. Paradoxically, very few of us know about her. We will be making this film at an ambitious scale,” Sibashish said.
