BAGHAVAT’ is the saga of Amar, a prince who grows up in the colourful world of gypsies, and later spearheads a rebellion against the tyranny of an evil ruler.


‘BAGHAVAT’ is the story of a princess whose pride and arrogance are enslaved by the gypsy Amar, who transforms her into a loving woman.


‘BAGHAVAT’ is also the story of a fiery gypsy maiden who immortalized her love for Amar by staking her life for him and his cause.


There is also, in ‘BAGHAVAT’, the touching tale of a mother-an exiled queen-pining for her long-lost son.


BAGHAVAT’ is passion and merriment- embellished with the colour, music and dance. It is a lavishly mounted entertainer that recaptures the old world charm of Indian Kings, their people, their intrigues, their battles- in all their pageantry and splendor.
