TellyBuzz had exclusively reported about Sagar Arts and Nilanjana Purkayasstha's newly formed production house, '72 Degrees Northe' coming up with a historical show on Imagine. The show which was earlier titled 'Maurya' has been rechristened to be 'Chandragupta Maurya'. As we reported earlier, it will focus on the formation of the Maurya Dynasty and the invasion of Alexander.

It is slated to launch on Imagine sometime in March. The shoot for the show has commenced at the extensive Sagar Film City in Baroda.

Some big names have been roped in to play pivotal roles.

Our source states, "Tej Sapru who is presently seen in Sahara One's Kesariya Balam Aavo Hamare Des will play an important role. So will Sooraj Thapar of Sasural Genda Phool fame and Manish Wadhwa of Mitwa fame".

We hear that Tej Sapru will play the role of Amartya Rakshas who is an integral part in Dhananand's army. The role of the warrior Dhananand will be essayed by Sooraj Thapar. Manish Wadhwa who played the villain in Mitwaa will essay the very important role of Chanakya.

Manish Wadhwa who has already started shooting for the show confirmed his presence in the show.

Tej Sapru said, "Yes, I am playing the role of Amartya. I will be starting shoot very soon".

Sooraj Thapar who essays the main negative force of Dhananand said, "It is a very challenging role, and I play the main negative role in Chandragupta Maurya".

Shoot with the younger version of Maurya is presently on, and the casting for the grown-up Maurya has not taken place yet.

We tried calling Moti Sagar of Sagar Arts, and also Nilanjana Purkayasstha, but they remained unavailable.

    I hope the serial doesn't get hijacked into being totally centered around Chanakya/Kautiliya, the way it has been in some history
