The multi-talented and gorgeous Pankhuri has played the role of Razia Sultan. The actress shared her excitement on portraying the powerful and strong character. She rightfully highlighted that Razia Sultan was well ahead of her time and her father, Sultan Iltutmish had full courage that his daughter was the worthy successor of his throne. Nowadays, people have started talking about gender equality but this very thought had been exercised during the 13th century Slave Dynasty.
