The teaser features opulent sets, blood-drenched swords, love, lust and glaring gender inequality. In the series, Annu Kapoor plays Raja Bhadrapratap Singh, a misogynistic ruler of Paurashpur where women are objectified for desire and treated like a man’s property. Women of Paurashpur have no freedom and aren’t allowed to deny any demand made by the men in the kingdom.
In the teaser, Shilpa Shinde stands out at Queen Meerawati. Her wisdom makes Paurashpur stand as a powerful empire. Milind Soman plays Boris, a transgender, who questions the inequality of men and women in the kingdom. The teaser also shows glimpses of Shaheer Sheikh as Veer Singh, Anant Joshi as Prince Aaditya, Poulomi Das as Kala and Sahil Salathia as Bhanu.
Shilpa Shinde is seen mouthing some impactful dialogues in the teaser like ‘Aazaadi ke liye ladhna padta hai aur ladhne ke liye zinda rehena bahut zaruri hai’ and ‘Aurato ka daman karke itihas rachne walo ka itihas mitta denge’. “My character has many shades and I am thrilled to be stepping into the shoes of Queen Meerawati. I have been extremely mindful of the shows I choose as I want to give my fans what they expect of me and I feel Paurashpur is the show that I have been looking for. This is also my first project with Ekta Kapoor and I am delighted to work with her and all the amazing cast and crew in the show. I hope people keep showering their love to all of us in this venture,” said Shilpa Shinde in a statement.
