Randeep Hooda to play Sultana Daku in his next biopic

Based on a novel, The confessions of Sultana Daku, the actor will play a dacoit from the Bhantu clan who terrorised the United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand) in the 1920s. He named his horse Chetak, after Maharana Pratap’s horse and operated on a code of honour.

When he was captured by the British, officer Freddie Young tried his hardest to have Sultana pardoned but to no avail. Sultana then asked Young to raise his son as a ‘sahib’ before he was sent to the gallows on July 7, 1924.
