Riding wild horses: DANIEL behind the scenes

Casting stallions in India and seeking locations that say "Babylon"

Horses, camels, sheep, humans. We work with them all.

Our favourite talent are still human though. We cast incredible actors from Asia for the December shoot in Rajasthan for our new Biblical drama, Daniel. Today’s behind-the-scenes unveils one of our talented prophets in the film, Habakkuk, as played by Indian actor, and India’s Top Model winner (2018), Mahir Pandhi.

But Habakkuk, the messenger prophet, would not be complete without his white horse. Join us behind the scenes for a glimpse into casting equine talent in India. Spoiler alert: they were thin, but beautiful steeds.

And if you’re inspired by the work we are doing to bring inspiring stories to life, including the new Biblical epic Daniel, please take two minutes to chip in.
