Colors revisits history with ‘Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat’
Colors today announced the advent of a new journey by taking viewers one step closer to Indian history with Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat.
Written by author Ashok Banker, who is making his comeback to television after nearly two decades, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat is the first time that the king’s story will be narrated on television. The show is being produced by Contiloe Entertainment.
Commenting on the show, Colors CEO Raj Nayak said, “Nothing gives us more joy than recreating history by narrating the story of one of the greatest rulers of India. We are currently in the initial stages of production where the lion just can’t wait to roar.”
“All the splendor and majesty of this great emperor will come alive on this extraordinary series as we promise to take our viewers through important chapters in Indian history. Further, the show’s concept and universal appeal is bound to entice our marketers and advertisers while creating multiple avenues to enable us to reach out to our collective target audiences,” he added.
The historical retelling of this tale on Colors will showcase the journey and lifetime of emperor Ashoka, from his rise to power to his state of penance after the gory blood-bath in the battle of Kalinga that made him give up war to embrace Buddhism.
Commenting on the show, Banker said, “It’s been a long and tedious process of carefully joining the dots and putting together a regal story for the viewers. While the epic story of Ashoka, the great Mauryan emperor, is waiting to be told, we hope to recreate history on Indian television with our significant efforts of retelling this great tale of Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat that changed the face of India’s cultural heritage.”
