Here’s introducing ALTBalaji’s Paurashpur web series, a drama that takes you back in time. Relive the 16th-century era with this show.

Recently, the makers of Paurashpur web series took to Instagram to share the glimpse of the larger-than-life kingdom. They wrote, “An extraordinary kingdom with stories both bold & brutal, witnesses an extraordinary revolution. Join us as we unfold the secret lives & dark desires of the royal family of #Paurashpur! Trailer out on 8th Dec, 12 pm on #ALTBalaji.”

Starring Milind Soman, Shilpa Shinde, Flora Saini, Annu Kapoor, Shaheer Sheikh, Poulomi Das, Sahil Salathia, and other famous celebrities, Paurashpur revolves around the stories of lust, power, love, gender, and patriarchy. And guess what? It also hides some of the dark secrets of every character behind its opulent walls. The interesting part about the show is how every actor effortlessly pulls off their character with so much ease!
