Young Ashoka’s journey was set in motion when Chanakya set out to look for Bindusara to take over the throne and protect Magadh from the Greek Army General, Seleucus Nicator (Tej Sapru), his daughter Helena (Suzanne Bernert) and her son Justin (Sumit Kaul). Being Chandragupta Maurya’s wife, Helena wanted to usurp the throne from her step son, Bindusara and make her own son, Justin the king of Magadh. However, all was not well even upon Bindusara’s return. Magadh’s future remained uncertain with everyone’s thirst for the throne. In an attempt to look for the rightful heir to succeed Bindusara’s reign, Chanakya traced Dharma (Pallavi Subhash), Bindusara’s wife and Ashoka (Siddharth Nigam) in the forest and brought them to Magadh. But the transition wasn’t an easy one. Ashoka came to Magadh with a sense of vengeance. His sole purpose was to restore his mother’s honour and secure a spot in the Mauryan Empire for her once it was revealed to him that the King of Magadh, Bindusara was his sire.
