We all have heard about Chanakya but let us inform you more about this historical figure:

  • Born in 371 BC, Chanakya is an Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal advisor.
  • Further it is said that Chanakya had played a major role in establishing the Chandragupta Maurya dynasty.
  •  It is said that he has written epic books like Chanakya Niti and Arthshashtra.
  •  Identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, he had assisted the first Mauryan emperor Chandragupta in his rise to power. Also, he played a significant role in establishing the Maurya Empire
  • Also, he used to serve as the chief advisor to both emperors Chandragupta and his son Bindusara.

Now, Reliance Entertaiment’s Shibashish Sarkar said, “Epic characters such as Chanakya have an everlasting sense of mystery and legend around them.”

Well, Sarkar believes that the movie which is based on the life of Chanakaya will be loved by everyone.

In 2015, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat a popular TV series based on the life of Chanakya was recreated.
