Producer Muir Sutherland says, "After
nine years it was good to reunite the Sharpe team for
our Indian shoot. After filming in Ukraine, Portugal and
Turkey, India was an exciting place to make the 2006 Sharpe.
The exotic locations, an excellent local crew, and India's
warm welcome, was something that we will all remember
for a very long time.
“Filming in India gave us the opportunity
to make Sharpe look as big as a feature film. Set in an
exotic background of fortresses and palaces, with a strong
cast we believe that Sharpe's Challenge will be one of
the most exciting Sharpes of all time.”
