Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 26th July 2016 Written Episode
Acharya RG asks Nayak if he got any clue about it. Nayak says no. I got a doubt on Sushim’s soldiers last night only when I saw them there. It is surely something big and wrong. Acharya RG reasons that they need to find out about their plan asap as they don’t have much time.
Vit says time passed and Meneka’s daughter grew up. She excelled in everything. Sushim looks at Kaurvaki as she comes on stage. Dharma is very happy to see her and so does Devi. Scenes are enacted wherein Kaurvaki is playing with her friends. Sushim looks at Kaurvaki as she happily plays veena. You wished to live and die with Ashoka. You chose him over me. You will die now, don’t worry. Ashoka is restless in his room. He hears the sound of veena too and heads towards the stage.
Acharya RG and Nayak come to Ashoka’s room but don’t find him there.
Vit says Shakuntala dint know the one she was dreaming about and waiting for is Raja Dushyant – brave, honest, people love and peaceful king. Ashoka and Kaurvaki look at each other while Vit talks more about Raja Dushyant. Ashoka takes Kaurvaki’s name (in very low voice). Ashoka realises where he is and says his lines. Kaurvaki goes from there.
Acharya RG asks his soldiers to keep an eye on everyone. Bring anyone you doubt in a corner away from the main stage area. No one should get a doubt on it. Sushim will be on stage. I will be there. They nod and leave to obey his orders. Acharya RG says it is sure that they wish to harm Ashoka. If it is Helena’s plan then it will happen during the play only. It will be dangerous.
Vit speaks about the story. Raja Dushyant had no idea he will lose his heart this time when he will go out for hunt. Anindini and everyone play their roles. Acharya RG and NAyak come there. Nayak wishes to alert Ashoka but Acharya RG stops him. It will alert the enemies. They can do anything in tension which can be dangerous for us.
Vit says no one could stand before Shakuntala as she was so knowledgeable. Raja Dushyant kills down an animal while Shakuntala rushes towards the wounded animal. Smoke effect is given on stage. Acharya RG tells the servant not to do it. He obliges. Shakuntala demands to know who killed this innocent animal. Raja Dushyant accepts doing it. She sees it in his eyes that he is a calm and peaceful man. Why did you do it then? He shares that this tradition is being following by his ancestors. He cannot end it even if he does not like it. She advises him to end the wrong traditions that are going on since ages. You dislike them yet you continue doing it as well. How will you make peace if you too will not stop such traditions from continuing?
Acharya RG’s soldiers ask other soldiers if they have seen the soldiers who are with Sushim. The soldiers deny. Sushim’s soldiers heave a sigh of relief seeing them go in other direction.
Ashoka and Kaurvaki tell each other what’s in their hearts through the dialogues of the play. Charu looks uninterested. Dharma looks content. Raja Dushyant and Kaurvaki came close while he stayed in the jungle. Ashoka lifts Kaurvaki in his arms as she gets hurt (as per the scene). Sushim is upset to see the closeness between Ashoka and Kaurvaki. Raja Dushyant and Shakuntala got married. Chanda notices Kaurvaki all quiet. She reminds her she has to speak now. Kaurvaki speaks her part. I will be with you all my life. Only death can separate us now. They exchange garlands. Raja Dushyant too accepts Shakuntala as his wife. Your pain is my pain and your happiness is my happiness. I will be with you always. Only death can do us apart. Everyone showers flower petals on them. Kaurvaki and Ashoka look at each other sweetly. Anindini looks highly upset.
Acharya RG, Nayak and their soldiers zero in on the soldiers who were helping them last night (Sushim’s soldiers). The soldiers look tensed. Acharya RG asks about their plan. How do you plan to hurt everyone? The soldiers slit their throats right away.
Shakuntala pleads to Raja Dushyant to take her with him. I promise to support you in everything. I wont be an obstacle in your way. Raja Dushyant asks her if she loves him, trusts him. She nods. I trust you more than myself. He makes her close her eyes. I promise you I am only yours. I will come back to you soon. He keeps the ring in her hand and leaves. She eyes the ring longingly. Dharma and Bindu are pained to see this.
Sushim angrily changes his costume. Acharya RG is keeping an eye on him. What’s stopping Sushim from playing his next move?
Vit says neither Raja Dushyant came nor came any news about him. Shakuntala kept waiting for him, unaware of the danger coming towards her, in the form of Rishi Durvasa (Siamak). Shakuntala does not greet Rishi Durvasa as she sits lost in thoughts. Rishi Durvasa curses her. The one you have been thinking of will forget you. She apologizes to him for her mistake. I will end my life if my husband has to bear a curse.
Sushim thinks I will fulfil your wish Padmavati as soon as Siamak’s part will come to an end. Don’t worry about it.
Rishi Durvasa says my curse cannot be taken back. Raja Dushyant will be free from the curse when he will see the memento (ring). He leaves. Shakuntala looks at the ring emotionally.
Siamak meets Ashoka backstage. The play is about to end. Best of luck for the last part. Ashoka gets thoughtful.
Precap: Kaurvaki ends up speaking lines about herself on stage. She is about to drink poison when Ashoka hits at her hand, calling her Kaurvaki. He hugs her emotionally. Everyone is taken aback to know her real identity.
