Shooting the backdrop of 16th century India, in the world of Paurashpur where actor Annu Kapoor, famously known as Raja Bhadrapratap Singh, ruled an extremely wrong and evil empire.

Shilpa Shinde says, “I think most artists are always ready to work in shows like Porshapur. Apart from portraying the ambitious character of a queen, the show touches on a number of serious issues such as male patriarchy, gender politics, power, etc., which used to exist in those days. I am happy to be a part of this interesting show shot on such a grand scale. Hope you guys enjoy watching it as much as we did while shooting. You will never want to miss this show ”.
