This February, enlighten yourself with ancient Indian history as discovery+, India’s first and leading aggregated real-life entertainment streaming app, highlights the excavations by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) that could reveal ancient Indian secrets buried 4000 years ago, with the new documentary film ‘Secrets of Sinauli: Discovery of the Century’.

Talking about working in Secrets of Sinauli: Discovery of the Century, Manoj Bajpayee said, “I am a history student, so I can say it with a lot more pride that this part of history needed to be told and this is the right time, when the opinions of the western historians and Indian historians are clashing.”

Sharing his views on working in a historical movie, Manoj Bajpayee said, “The Parsi theatre in older times used to be very larger than life and even today, we have been making historical films that way. We haven’t been able to make these characters life-like. Personally, I wish that if I get to perform a historical character, I will try to make it as lively and as real as possible, so that people are able to understand their life better.”

“Discovery documentaries, I think it should be a part of family viewing, for the younger ones to really know what land we are born in. It’s very important to know the history of the land that we are a part of. Sinauli is proving itself to be an important part of the history,” he added.

Neeraj Pandey talks about his experience of creating Secrets of Sinauli: Discovery of the Century’, “I started my career with documentary filmmaking, so it felt like homecoming. I love the format because you get to tell a story the way it is – no frills, and the excitement of bringing a certain reality before the audiences in an engaging manner. We fell in love with the concept right from the word go.”

Produced by Neeraj Pandey’s & Shital Bhatia’s production house Friday Storytellers, and featuring Manoj Bajpayee as the host, ‘Secrets of Sinauli: Discovery of the Century’ is streaming now on discovery+
