Britain's Maharajah

As Sikhs worldwide celebrate the annual festival of Vaisakhi, Britain's Maharajah tells the little-known story of an iconic figure in Anglo Sikh history. Born in the age of Queen Victoria, Maharajah Duleep Singh was the last ruler of the Punjab, and Britain's first Sikh settler. Vaisakhi is a time when Sikhs re-affirm their faith, and this film tells the epic story of his battle with identity and how he rediscovered his Sikh roots.
