MUMBAI: It's a historical appeal. Life OK, in association with Contiloe Pictures, is all set to bring the story of the king who was like none other ? a king ? who was a true leader and a visionary, a man of intelligence and not just brute strength, Sher-a-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

The show will be aired at 8.30pm time slot from Monday to Friday.

Produced by Contiloe Pictures, the show is starting from 20 March. The show is about the founder of the Sikh empire, who is mostly known as the last Indian to hold the famed Koh-i-noor diamond and for gold-plating the Golden Temple.

The show follows the journey of the exemplary king who placed service above rule, and unity above power. It sets out to discover all the facets of the man whose philosophies endeared him to his countrymen, and whose political acumen struck fear in the heart of his enemies ? the British and Afghans.

The makers of the show got Omung Kumar onboard to design the sets, the name behind the movies such as Black, Saawariya and Yuvvraj. The costumes of the lead actors have been designed by the famous Bollywood costume designers -- Manoshi Nath and Rushi Sharma. Bollywood stunt director Allan Amin was brought in to direct the war sequences in the show.

Doing justice to the complex setting of the show was not an easy task for the production house. Contiloe Pictures CEO Abhimanyu Singh said, ?We are very happy to announce the launch of our next historical venture, 'Sher-E-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh' in collaboration with Life OK. This show promises to be the biggest historical from our stable. We have worked for over a year and a half on the show and a unit of 500 hundred people are working day and night to translate our vision into reality. We are also working with state-of-the-art VFX supervisors and stylists to give a freshness to this epic saga?.
