      Talking about the show Kunal Kapoor said in a statement, "It's been challenging but fun! The makers have paid special attention to this character's look - it is very unique to his personality. Grandeur and royalty aside, this role is fierce and emotionally complex at the same time."

      Earlier this week, he talked about The Empire during a media interaction and said that he has never worked on a project that is as big as this one. Calling it an interesting experience he added, " It is going to be an interesting experience for the audience because, primarily, it is a visual spectacle, the kind of which you have not seen on any platform in this country."
