“Taj is a succession drama set against the majestic Mughal backdrop. We have witnessed the stories of the great battles of this era, but this is a story of the war that ensued within the walls of the sultanate. What made it exciting was to look at these historical figures as humans with ambitions, desires and flaws and more importantly a family that had to make difficult choices. A brilliant team from across the globe has brought this series to life. We are excited for the viewers to immerse themselves in this world and witness the chapters that got left out of the history books,” Bollywood Hungama quoted Nimisha Pandey, Chief Content Officer – Hindi Originals, ZEE5.
Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India, Manish Kalra stated, “As a consumer first brand, our strategy has been to invest in high quality content with best in class viewing experience; and ‘Taj – Divided by Blood’ is our most ambitious project which encapsulates the Mughal era and the war for dynasty unlike ever-before. We are excited to bring forth this epic saga of war and succession which will unravel many untold stories to our viewers. We are confident that this magnum opus will excite and entertain our viewers and reinstate ZEE5 as India’s foremost storytellers.”
“The story of the Mughals has always been shown through the rose-tinted glasses of romance. Ours is an endeavour to show the true succession battle, one with deceit, political machinations and the dark side of the camelot. As we consider this a global story for the peacock throne, we have conjured a great team of global talent to collaborate with us to tell this epic tale. It is always a pleasure partnering with ZEE5 and we’re excited to be bringing Taj in association with them,” Producer Abhimanyu Singh, Contiloe Digital remarked.
