“I made my own backstory of Shankari”, says Anupriya Goenka on how she prepared for her role in Sultan of Delhi

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. Reimagining 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.

Being a part of a Milan Luthria project is no joke and every role is integral, equally important, and well-designed and thought off. When the director and his vision is on point, actors do feel the pressure to prepare extremely well for their respective roles. Anupriya spills the beans on how she prepared for her role

Talking about how she prepared for her role in the series, Anupriya Goenka said, “It is one of the most difficult characters that I have played so far as earlier I have played roles where the character is doing the right things and has mostly taken the responsibility of the people around her and I could relate to that but Shankari is a very vicious character who can harm innocent people also to fulfill her goals. It was very difficult for me to make sense of that. To be honest, it is one character that made me feel a little nervous about playing and equally excited about as well till the time I was on set. To prepare for my role, I made a backstory of Shankari to understand her, tried going through literature or content that would take me back to the 60’s to understand the mannerisms and get a sense of how women of her stature or her kind of personality walked and spoke. I did not want to play Shakari like a regular vamp while also making it delicious. The costumes and the set was what helped me the most to prepare to play Shankari.

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