"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean."

A contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy by Ankit Love set in 1913 British India.

For the first time on cinema, with an all female cast of fashion models.


This is the international film event of the century, set in fair Udaipur.
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean, in 1913, British India.
Alight and alive, two star crossed lovers collide, to stylized fashion film anachronisms.

This is Shakespeare's timeless classic, as never imagined before.

The story is set in the 1913 British Raj of India. Where the picturesque lake city of Udaipur, known as the Venice of the East plays as the back drop of fair Verona. This film will be a juxtaposition of contemporary and classic aesthetics.

Where the world of experimental 21st century fashion and design clashes with a classical 1910s setting of India under the British Raj.

Uniquely to contrast with the Shakespearean times when all acting roles were played by men, this film will have an all female cast apart from the role of Mercutio.
