Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s historical mega series Porus recently seamlessly translated to its extension, now Chandragupta Maurya retaining some of its powerhouse actors. The show revolves around the life journey of the founder of the Maurya empire, orphaned & abandoned Chandragupta Maurya.
Writer, producer, director Siddharth Kumar Tewary has been instrumental in setting a trend where there are life sermons dictated by the show protagonists towards the end of the episode of his respective shows. Be it Lord Krishna in Mahabharata or Lord Krishna now in his magnum opus mythological show RadhaKrishn. Apparently Chandragupta Maurya will also have this element albeit this time with a character of pivotal importance in our ancient history.
A source close to the show shares the development, ‘As the show is progressing, we have now introduced the idea of narrating Chanakya’s chants at the end of every episode that have been procured from the famous book Arthshastra written by Chanakya himself. Chanakya was an Indian teacher, philosopher & royal advisor. He is credited for having played an important role in the establishment of Maurya Emperor. He is the pioneer of field of economics & political science in India.’
The show gradually takes us to the time where Chandragupta is trained under Chanakya , that the history has recorded to be of prime importance. It will progress towards the training that will help Chandragupta become the future king of United India & help him tactfully deal with Dhananand.
