Though most of it shown in the show doesn't match with real history,
since during Mauryan rule Gandhar and Magadha became allies, and with Ambhek's attitude, this looks like a difficult task,
and most importantly, Chandragupt was never an official Takshashila student, Chanakya trained him all by himself,
so it looks like the CVs have lifted the entire track from Harry Potter to suit the viewership needs of the TV addicts.
But who cares, they can continue we are enjoying it...
as long as they don't modify history top such an extent that it begins making fun of the characters and the original history, as is being done in Jhansi ki Rani on Zee TV
nikkie chandragupt did study in the takshshila for 8 yrs till he founded maghda empire by defeating dhnananda at the age of 20 yrs. & chankya bought him there!!
