With the introduction of Ashish Sharma as the grown up Chandragupta, the story line will focus on the intention of Chanakya (Manish Wadhwa) to weaken the Greek army by planting Chandragupta as part of their army.
The introductory sequence of Ashish we hear, has been shot in an extravagant manner in which Chandragupta is shown destroying the ammunitions of the Greek army. This is followed by a fight sequence wherein few soldiers in the Greek army realize that Chandragupta has joined their army to weaken it.
While the post leap story line will focus on the journey of Alexander's conquest over India, the pre leap portion of the story will end with an interesting sequence wherein the little boy Chandragupta tries to attack Dhananand (Sooraj Thapar). Viewers will also see the boy taking an oath before his master Chanakya that he will safeguard his mother land once he grows up. Ashish's introduction will be shown in this Saturday's episode.
When contacted, Ashish told us, "I am shooting from yesterday, and I am already enjoying what I am doing. I have gone through a lot of preparations for the role, and I hope viewers like me as Chandragupta Maurya".
