Chandragupta Maurya, the weekend historical show on Imagine TV is going from strength to strength when it comes to its ratings. The show produced by Sagar Arts and 72 Degrees Northe is the Number 1 show on the channel with an average rating of 1.7.

The latest buzz is that the channel and production house are planning a generation leap soon to take the story of Maurya forward.

And we hear that Ashish Sharma, who portrayed the stern and tough protagonist Bhaiyyaji in Gunahon Ka Devta stands a high chance of bagging the role of the grownup Maurya.

A source from the industry tells us, "Talks are presently on with Ashish Sharma and he was the first choice to play the pivotal role. If things fall in place, the channel expects to take the leap in the end of June or early July".

We tried our level best to get in touch with Ashish Sharma, but could not reach him.

We could not get in touch with Saurabh Tewari, Head of Programming Fiction, Imagine TV, as well as Producer and Creative Director, Nilanjana Purkayasstha for a confirmation.

Let's wait to see if Bhaiyyaji does get to play the role of Chandragupta Maurya in his second innings on Imagine..

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this issue. The only reason that I see regarding this early leap is the fact that Chandragupt Maurya died at the age of 42 after renouncing this world. So this is the only reason for this leap and no other reason holds good at this point. Ashish Sharma said in his early interviews that he is not very much interested in TV shows because the shootings are tiring and that he would only choose roles which doesn't have female protagonist as a lead. He also said his prime focus as an Actor is bollywood. This is the reason he has said yes to this show because it is male dominated show.

    @CGM fans .. you should be happy that your show is still going on. And even if there is a leap u r getting a good actor to take up the role.
    Our GKD was ended abruptly with all protagonists dead except the vamp... despite protests from us viewers & inspite of a good fan following for the show. So no use complaining. The Imagine programming head will do as he wants , whether the viewers like it or not.
