Colors TV is going to be following the trend of bringing to television a historical drama. After the huge success of Zee TV’s Jodha Akbar, Sony TV’s Maharana Pratap, many shows followed the lead of bringing in shows that revolve around a historical figure. Colors TV recently released the first look of their upcoming show, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat.
There had been news that the makers of Mahabharat (Swastik Productions) were about to produce Ashoka for Star Plus. This series of Ashoka, however, is not by Swastik Productions.
Bollywood has already done a film on Ashoka, which starred the baadshah of Bollywood himself, ShahRukh Khan. Starring opposite Khan was Kareena Kapoor Khan. According to the first look, we have heard countless stories of Kings, but there was one King who stood out due to the fact that there was no one like him before him and after him.
The first look promises an epic tale. It is also the first show on King Ashoka, who is considered one of India’s greatest emperors. He ruled from 268 – 232 BCE. It will be left to be seen whether or not the drama closely follows Ashoka’s life or the makers use their creative license to bring in their own stories.
