It's good news for all the Rajat Tokas fans. The small screen's
Akbar, from Jodha Akbar, will soon return with
Ekta Kapoor's next show based on Chandragupta Maurya.
When Imagine TV's Chandragupta Maurya shut shop in 2012,
speculations were rife that the show will soon be aired on Sony
Entertainment Television. However, with lead actor Ashish Sharma's
exit, the rumours soon died.
Now if reliable sources are to be believed, Balaji Telefilms is
planning to bring a new show on the life of Chadragupta Maurya.
Rajat, who played Akbar to perfection, has the talent needed to
pull it off.
Sources inform that small screen's Akbar, Rajat Tokas has been
roped in to play the lead role of Chandragupta Maurya and casting
for the rest of the actors will begin after Hindu festival
Navratri. When contacted, Rajat remained unavailable for
Rajat won millions of hearts with his impeccable portrayal of
Akbar alongside Paridhi Sharma, who played Jodha with
equally brilliant depiction of the royal queen. It will be
interesting to see who might play the lead actress alongside Rajat,
if he agrees to play the role.
