Baadshaho, is set during the emergency period in 1975, which is also sometimes referred to as India’s second struggle for independence. People’s fortunes changed drastically, either for the worst or for the better. Exercise of power was at it’s peak. During this period, the government decided to confiscate assets from a number of Royal families in the country, especially in and around Rajasthan, citing that these assets were not declared in their wealth statements. The film highlights one such fictitious event when assets worth crores were tucked away and concealed which then leads to a raid.
