Reasons to look forward to Ekta kapoor's next historical project `Chandragupta Maurya'
Upcoming TV serial, Chandragupt Mauyra has been in the news since 2015. After the huge success of the historical drama Jodha Akbar, Ekta kapoor was very eager to do another historical project and finally after almost 9 months the shoot of the ambitious project has started. So here are the reasons for which people are looking forward to the show.

Jodha Akbar fame Rajat Tokas has been finalised for the title role, and considering his perfect portrayal of Akbar and early historical serials of his career, audience would definitely want to know what he does next in his new avatar.

In opposite of Rajat Tokas, Shweta Basu Parsad has bagged the role of Chandragupta Maurya's wife Nandini. Shweta is a national award winning actress and returns to the television industry after almost 14 years. People are still amazed by her mesmerizing acting in Makdee and want to see her acting again. 

Not just only the lead actors, but Ekta Kapoor has chosen every character very specifically. Alex O'Nell for the role of Alexander the Great, Mahabharat fame Ankit Ranka for Raja Padmanadhan, and Papiya Sengupta for the role of Moora have been finalised. So many talents in one show, Isn't it great?

 We all love historical shows nowadays. Don't we? Although the production houses do add lot of fiction to keep the story line interesting, but still the shows are more refreshing than the daily Saas-Bahu sagas. The heroic life of Chandragupta Maurya would definitely grab the attention of the viewers.

The love story of Chandragupta and Nandini and then the presence of Chandragupta's second wife Helena would be a treat to watch.

Last but not the least, 4 years back a show based on Chandragupta Maurya with the same title went off air due to the sudden shut down of the channel. The viewers went on a protest and then a rumour came that the show might come back with Rajat Tokas as the lead actor. Now in 2016 the show will be back again and co-incidentally with the same guy, but yes from a different production house. Circle of life. I tell you.
