Dileep Singh Rathore – Talabgaon Castle, India
Dileep Singh Rathore - Reviving the Legendary Era of Nobility
Born and raised in Jaipur, Dileep Singh Rathore established his film career early on, working on international features such as Ajooba and City of Joy, Blood Diamond, The Way Back and The Dark Knight Rises and he has served on a number of acclaimed producer panels including The American Film Market (AFM), Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) and Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI). In partnership with the Government of India Tourism Department, Dileep has been actively involved in promoting India, and Rajasthan in particular, as a filming destination to international filmmakers throughout the U.S. and Europe. Integrating his personal and professional life, Dileep has recently restored and partially converted a legendary 150-year-old family castle, Talabgaon, into a boutique hotel and heritage resort. Tucked away in the heart of Rajasthan, Talabgaon Castle has been in Dileep’s family for centuries, and brims with tales of battle, honor and fearless warriors, all tracing back to an ancient Indian dynasty of the sun. A passion for polo, the luxury resort has its own polo field and stables and fuses contemporary amenities with a royal ambiance, offering guests a unique experience in the Indian countryside. The restoration of Talabgaon Castle’s palatial estate grounds and extensive facilities are an expression of Dileep’s desire to share his family history and culture with fellow travellers.
