The biggest grosser for Doordarshan, Sunil Agnihotri directed Chandrakanta had carved another level of success for this genre of storytelling on television. From children to adults, 9 AM Sunday was reserved for this adventure and an overload of magical twists & turns. And now the slot will be reserved for Sahara One.
Now once again Sunil Agnihotri, in his fantasy drama 'Kahani Chandrakanta Ki,' is bringing back to life those super successful characters of princess Chandrakanta, Kroor Singh, Pundit Jagannath, Badrinath etc under the banner of Sunil Agnihotri Production.

Sunil Agnihotri says, "Chandrakanta, in itself, is a huge product. No other serial could match its popularity or success. In any case costume Dramas- whether Historical, Mythological or Fantasies- have always been close to my heart. Their canvas is creating an aura around a different time zone is so very interesting. After a long break, once again we are bringing the similar thrill, shape shifting aiyyars & magic of tilism back at a higher level with more and better special effects through my favourite subject."
