I feel blessed to have such an amazing ensemble cast and crew and I am so looking forward for the show to come out this year.”
“Chhatrasal” also features Ashutosh Rana as Aurangzeb along with Manish Wadhwa, Manmohan Tiwari, Vaibhavi Shandilya, Anusha Lohar and child actor Rudra Soni in important roles.
Chaturvedi said: “It is an exciting phase for all of us to venture into digital production. Directing something like ‘Chhatrasal’ is an absolute honour. I am sure that this show will definitely change the dynamics of historical shows on web.”
