Kartikeya is taking inspiration from Hrithik Roshan in Chandragupta Maurya
Chadragupta Maurya, the show which scorched the Indian television since its inception has been a much loved show on Sony Entertainment Television. The show which narrated the saga of Chandragupta Maurya and his guru Chanakya is taking an interesting turn as it’s going to take a leap in it’s narrative. In the process of that leap, viewers will witness a historical moment which made Chandragupta realize his real potential. Which in turn decides the fate of “Akhand Bharat”. That moment is when Chandragupta Maurya fights a lion and rips it apart through bare hands. Kartikeya Malviya, who plays the lead, is excited for this particular moment and wants to make it memorable for the fans and for himself.
To get the moves and the action right for this crucial sequence, Kartikeya is watching Hrithik Roshan’s fight with an elephant in the film Mohenjodaro. He has been training himself to gauge perfection for this particular scene. Though everyone knows there are virtual graphics that get used in such sequence, Kartikeya is giving his best to emote the real emotions.
Kartikeya says, “ Hrithik Roshan is a legend. When it comes to physique, agility, his moves in action sequences is second to none. Though the fight shown in the film is with the elephant which is much larger and bigger but his moves are master class in itself. This particular sequence is awe inspiring in our show. I understand that this sequence is something entire crew would be looking closely and I don’t want to disappoint anyone. After watching Hrithik closely I feel quite confident to pull this off with best of my abilities.”
