Dharmendra, who has been away from the screen for a while, will next be seen in OTT platform in a small but significant role in the upcoming show Taj – Divided by Blood. Showcasing an ensemble cast, the show is set against the backdrop of the Mughal Era and traces us back to the time during Akbar’s reign when the King was on a hunt to find a worthy successor. The show is expected to trace the journey of Mughal politics with the veteran star playing a crucial role in the process as Sheikh Salim Chisti.
Dharmendra shares FIRST LOOK as a Sufi saint from the epic saga Taj – Divided By Blood
In the recent look posted by Dharmendra, he seems to look unrecognizable in his long-white beard as well as a white turban as the Sufi saint. His outfit primarily consisted of robes that represented the era of Mughals. Posting it on his Twitter handle, the veteran star wrote, “Friends, i am playing Shaikh Slim Chishti ….a sufi saint, in film Taaj. A small but an important role………need your good wishes”. Many of his fans took to the platform, after the actor posted about it, and they even posted their heartfelt wishes for the star in the comment section.
