THE KING WITHIN

The self-proclaimed “twin brother” of Elvis, Raja Danapat grew up in Kharagpur, India and from an early age loved to sing. Initially he sang the songs of Cliff Richards and Tom Jones, until one evening at his local cinema, in glorious Technicolor, he discovered Elvis Presley. From that point on Elvis became part of his life. This film follows Raja's journey from India to London as we see him moonlighting from his job as a doctor as he entertains the local community. Now 75 years old, for Raja the King more than ever is the guiding light for how he lives his life.
