In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Dino Morea said, “If you compare me to someone who does a fantastic job, it’s like Chalo thik h. I’m satisfied with that. Because Ranveer did a fantastic job as Khilji. I am not affected by what he does as khilji. I try to describe my madness through Sheybani Khan. So I agree with the comparison as long as it’s the best. Compare me only with the best.”
In their review of The Empire, the Hindustan Times wrote of him: “Dino Morea, who plays the villain Mohammad Sheybani Khan as a cross between Jared Leto Joker’s and Alauddin Khilji Ranvir Singh. One scene is shown carving a corpse, and frankly, if he were to suddenly turn into a cannibal and eat one of his followers, my eyelids wouldn’t blink. This is the level of friendship shown here. His first “confrontation” with Babur was so slow that it was like watching blades of grass sway in the wind. “
In an interview with the PTI news agency, Dino said that he loved the opportunity to play Mohammad Sheybani Khan on the show. To deepen his character, the actor said that he studied the characteristics of the black panther. He said “We had to challenge all of that to make the character believable. I saw traits of a black panther, like how clever, wild and beautiful it is to look at.”
