Shah Rukh Khan in Asoka
Text: Sukanya Verma
Design: Rajesh Karkera
Asoka traces the life and times of one of the most charismatic historical emperors of India.

Set in 230 BC, the film tells of Magadha's young prince, Ashoka (Shah Rukh Khan), who loves his father King Bindusara (Gerson Da Cunha) dearly and will do anything to please him.

Besides establishing his credentials as an expert statesmen and skilled hunter, Ashoka wins the hearts of his subjects, making him a strong contender for the throne.

Much to elder brother Susima's (Ajith) dismay, who has his eyes on the crown.
