The sequel to the film The Tiger of Eschnapur shows the hunt for Sitha and Sascha around the world disguised as the Maharaja's journey with Irene Traven and Prince Ramigani, while Fürbringer, Emil Sperling and his wife Lotte Sperling work on the Maharaja's construction projects in India. In Bombay, Ramigani manages to track down Sitha in a second-rate variety show. Before that, however, Sitha can contact Irene Traven. Before the two can speak to each other, Sitha is kidnapped by Prince Ramigani. While the Maharaja travels to Eschnapur with his entourage and shows Irene his country, Ramigani and other nobles of the country forge a revolt with the aim of Ramigani himself becoming the Maharaja. Sitha is taken to a remote mountain castle, but Sitha's servant Myrrha manages to smuggle Irene into the heavily guarded mountain castle for a talk with Sitha. When Irene asks the Maharaja for mercy for Sitha, the latter refuses. While planning to kill Chandra during a festival, Ramigani has Irene Traven and Fürbringer captured. Disguised as an Indian, Emil Sperling escapes capture and frees Fürbringer and Irene with the help of Sascha Demidoff. For the festival, Ramigani forces Sitha to dance. When she approaches the Maharaja in her dance and warns of the attack by Ramigani, she is shot. The revolt that breaks out is also suppressed and Ramigani dies fleeing his just punishment. The Maharaja now asks advocates to stay to complete the tomb of Sitha.
