Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India is the first Amish book to receive the cinematic treatment. He will work on the film as a creative producer.The story takes place in the 11th century when the Turks, led by Ghazni, launched multiple raids on India and destroyed the Somnath Temple to the ground. It was then that the young warrior Suholdev embarked on an adventurous journey and gathered his own army, with soldiers from different religions, sects and regions, to fight the Turks and rebuild the temple.
Speaking of the movie, Amish said“Maharaja Suheldev is one of India’s most consequential heroes from the 11th century, who is, sadly, relatively unknown to modern Indians. This tale carries a universal message of unity cutting across class, caste and religious barriers, a message that is particularly relevant for India today. Maharaja Suheldev’s story tells us that when we Indians are united, we are unbeatable.“I am delighted that my book Legend of Suheldev is being converted into a movie to reach out to a wider audience,” he said.
