“The film is set against the backdrop of politics among the royal families. So the idea is to recreate the splendour and magnificence of Indian royalty,” says Rudrarup Datta, head of marketing and operations, Viacom18 Motion Pictures that has co-produced the film with Brandsmith Motion Pictures, he adds:
“A series of vintage cars have been specially sourced to bring the lead star cast into a venue reminiscent of a palace. It will be an experience to behold.” Some of these vintage cars include the ’60s models of makes such as Buick, Avon, Ford, Chrysler and Cadillac.
“There are only a handful of dealers for such vintage cars. The makers handpicked these particular cars from them. A few of them have been brought from Jaipur for the event,” says the source.
