Sultan of Delhi on Disney+ Hotstar seems like it's from the gangster drama universe of Milan Luthria, who makes his series debut.

Milan Luthria is back with another gangster drama, and this time, it's in a series format. Also, after helming typical Mumbai stories like Taxi No. 9211 (2006) and the Once Upon A Time franchise, Milan turns his attention to Delhi. The trailer of Sultan of Delhi, co-written co-directed by Suparn S Verma, features Tahir Raj Bhasin, Mouni Roy, and an ensemble cast steeped in signature Milan Luthria colours.

What's in the trailer

The trailer shows Delhi of the 1960s, when Tahir's character channels ambition to rule over the capital city. He claims he derives his strength from the fact that his origin is from across the border and he relocated to Delhi after braving the odds, presumably from Pakistan during Partition.

The rest of the trailer paints a fascinating gangster world, with powerplay, mind games, ambition, betrayal, and guns. Mouni Roy also pops in, looking extremely glamorous. This series seems like it's to Delhi what Milan's 2010 gangster drama Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai was to Mumbai.
