Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 3rd February 2016 Written Episode
Agnibahu and Ashoka (in the disguise of a soldier) are outside the palace. Agnibahu mutters to Ashoka that he is getting himself in trouble. Ashoka pokes him to move ahead. Agnibahu enters inside the palace along with Ashoka. Agnibahu introduces Ashoka to other soldiers as his bodyguard. I need safety.
Kaurvaki runs in the palace.
Ashoka hears the sound of the bell. I don’t have much time now. Hurry up!
Kaurvaki sits in a place. She tears a piece of her cloth and hurts her hand. She writes a note using her own blood for Ashoka. She gets tensed as she hears the sound of approaching footsteps.
Ashoka tells Agnibahu not to show his fear before Kichak. Agnibahu hopes his Mahanayak is not in a foul mood.
Kichak and Amatya continue to look for Kaurvaki. Kaurvaki hits a soldier on his head and heads towards the balcony. She signals some pigeons. Kichak and Amatya hear the sound. Ashoka too senses it. Agnibahu tells him not to stop after hearing every sound. Mahanayak Kichak will get a doubt on you this way.
Kaurvaki talks to Titli (a pigeon). I was sure you will come to help me. Maybe we became friends for this day only. Give my message to Ashoka. He is in Vishwavidyalaya. Titli flies away.
Ashoks asks for Kichak. I did not come here to roam around the palace. Where is Kichak!
Kichak and Amatya come to where Kaurvaki is. What were you trying to do? The soldiers have shot down Titli. They give the message to Kichak. Kichak angrily slaps Kaurvaki. He pulls out his sword to kill her but Amatya intervenes. Her life is more important for us. Ashoka will not come to kill Dhananjay but he will certainly come to save her. Kichak does not want to leave her alive anymore. Amatya agrees. We will kill her when she is of no use to us. Till then, punish her such that she stays alive! Kichak screams out in anger.
Agnibahu hears Kichak’s scream. He advises Ashoka to leave. Ashoka refuses to go. A soldier greets them just then. Agnibahu asks him about Kichak. They get to know Kichak is headed towards the prison.
All the citizens of Takshshila pray to Lord Shiva. They are worried for Ashoka. We have no news of him so far. Did he get to meet Kichak or not!
Kichak has tied Kaurvaki as well. You share a weird relation. The daughter had come to save her father but now I will punish her in such a way that her father wont be able to see it! Jagannath requests him to free Kaurvaki. She speaks the same for her Baba. Punish me not my Baba. Kichak agrees to do what Jagannath is saying. He drops the hunter before Jagannath and frees his hands. Pick it up and punish your daughter on your own! Jagannath begs him to kill him. Don’t punish me this way. Please let her go. kichak insists. Jagannath pleads for his daughter. Kichak stays put. Jagannath declines. I wont be able to do it. Kichak calls it easy. He hits Kaurvaki using it. I will show you it isn’t difficult. He hits her when she shouts Jai Janani. Ashoka and Agnibahu stop in their tracks as they hear her. Ashoka wonders who is the rebel here. Agnibahu is all the more worried for Kichak’s anger at the moment. This is not the right time to ask him anything.
Amatya tells Jagannath about her closeness to Ashoka. Kichak adds they are fighting together gaianst me. I gave her an option to free you but she chose to help him. Ashoka and Agnibahu reach there and witness it all. Kaurvaki agrees. This is truth. Ashoka’s death will end the trust and dreams of the citizens of Takshshila. They dream of a united India. Ashoka is fighting for the innocent people. His fight is against adharma and injustice. I will give any sacrifice to make him win. Jagannath tells her to stop. You are helping Bindusar’s son! You forgot he backstabbed your father. Kaurvaki reasons Ashoka is different. Jagannath questions her relation with Ashoka. You have started to love him, right? You put my life in risk for Maurya’s! I would have been proud of you if you would have done something like that for Kalinga! Amatya adds fuel to fire. Jagannath says my daughter cannot be a traitor. Apologize for helping Ashoka! She reminds him of his words. Don’t even bow down before God when you aren’t guilty. I don’t think I did any mistake by helping Ashoka. Ashoka is all emotional. Jagannath hits her with hunter. Kaurvaki says Jai Janani all along. Ashoka is pained and angry to see her in pain. He pushes Agnibahu ahead. Jagannath falls down on the floor helpless and broken.
Kichak is surprised to see Agnibahu there. Kichak wants to know who this soldier (Ashoka) who is looking him directly in the eye is. Look down! Ashoka angrily makes a fist. Agnibahu adds he cannot bow down his head. There is some problem in his back since birth. The same is with his family. Kichak is amused. Why did you come here? Agnibahu talks about meeting a very old sage in some area. He gave me something to be worn by you. The one who wear is will become immortal. He cooks up some story. Amatya checks it. He lies to pretend he is very knowledgeable. Kichak advises him to give it to Dhananjay right now. He needs it more. Agnibahu says I don’t know where he is.
Precap: Acharya Devrath wonders if Ashoka will be able to accomplish in his mission or if he will die in the process. The soldiers hurt Ashoka.
