Kunal Kapoor's latest The Empire sequences involve elephants and horses

Recently, Kunal Kapoor took to his official Instagram handle and had a live interactive session with his friend and actor Hrithik Roshan. Speaking about his upcoming Hotstar show, Kapoor said, "Over the years, a lot of people used to tell me that I should do action on screen but actually nobody offered me an action role." He added, "Fortunately, I got the opportunity to do action in The Empire and it was really an incredible experience." "We have shot the action and war sequences in Rajasthan, with elephants, horses, and thousands of people around."

The Rang De Basanti star added, "To be honest, I thought shooting with horses would be something I won't enjoy but I really enjoyed horse riding. It's very dangerous when you are doing stunts with multiple horses around and that feels very intimidating. But I actually enjoyed horse riding a lot," 

Meanwhile, in the upcoming show, Kunal Kapoor will next be seen in the role of Mughal emperor Zahir ud-Din Muhammad Babur. The Empire also stars veteran actor Shabana Azmi, Raaz star Dino Morea, alongside Drashti Dhami. The upcoming war drama will be premiering on the online streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar on August 27. The actor recently dropped its trailer on photo-sharing platform Instagram.
