Ekta Kapoor’s historical Saga Chandra Nandini, that is getting aired on Star Plus is seriously Deforming the real story of Chandragupta Maurya. what they think ?viewers are without brain. They are showing anything in the name of History.
Ekta Kapoor we did not expect this from you.
Historical evidence suggests the name of Chandragupta Maurya’s wife as Durdhara, but the serial portrays her as Nandni.
Lineage of Durdhara According to History :-
According to the Mahavamsa-tika, Chandragupta had married his first-cousin, the daughter of the eldest of the maternal uncles who accompanied his mother to Pataliputra and raised her to the dignity of queen-consort. This daughter is surmised to have been Durdhara.
But what we are seeing in Chandra Nandini is Totally different .
Durdhara was the first wife of Chandragupta Maurya according to History But Chandra Nandini has different story to tell
We know Durdhara was the first wife of chandragpta maurya, But what Chandra Nandini is showing has made me loose my cool. How can they just change the history. Hmm, so According to serial Chandra Nandni :- Chandragupta first sees Helena when he managed to gets into the army of Alexander. However, according to History:-Chandragupta met Helena years after his first wife’s death.
At that time Chandragupta was said to be in his 40s. Helena must be in her 20s .
Now In Chandra Nandini we saw marriage of Helena with Chandragupta so that they both can take their revenge .
So technically Helena has become the first wife according to Chandra Nandini.
But According to History Helena the daughter of Greek general Selecus Nicator was the second wife of Chandragupta Maurya . Durdhara was the first wife and mother of Bindusara.
Its only the starting phase of this serial.
I always ask a question to myself :- Why our TV industry don’t do any research on any Historical Saga before showing it to the viewer.
Its their responsibility also to show the real facts .
