Meet Babur Khan, from The Hunt for Kohinoor - Character Introduction #1

The first readers of The Hunt for Kohinoor had one thing to say: the book reads like a film! At which we had our Spielberg moment, and said, well, why not give a sneak peek into the book, filmy style?

So we huddled down, put our heads together, grinned-guffawed-backslapped-squabbled, teleported ourselves to the Himalayas, hitched a lift from a friendly Yak, and after several late-nights and gallons of kahwa, came up with the idea of bringing the primary characters of The Hunt for Kohinoor alive, on screen, for you!

Yesterday, we unveiled Babur Khan, whom some would call the maleficent, malevolent villain of the book. But tell me, does a villain look in the mirror and see himself as one? Babur Khan’s role model is Che Guevara; Babur Khan is educated; and Babur Khan is planning a revolution in Afghanistan. 

Be warned: Babur means tiger in Persian, and much like his namesake who founded the Mughal empire in India, Babur Khan has his sights set on India ...
