Black Hangar Studios has to its credit Hollywood productions such as "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," "Dark Tide," "The Grand Tour," and "24: Live Another Day," as well as the Indian superhero film "Ra.One," released in 2011. “After working with the Indian Sci-fi genre we are excited to create the experience for a historical period drama," stated Black Hangar Studios CEO Jake Seal.

We aim to make films more engaging for global audiences irrespective of the language and medium and we are committed to making this story come alive.”
