History has nothing to do with how Manoj Joshi, aka Chanakya, is killed off in Colors’ popular show "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat." Sources claim that the actor will soon be killed off in the show. The character will breathe his last breath when he tries to rescue Ashoka from his conspirators, and Chanakya will get involved in order to keep the young lad alive.
However, the reason behind his oust is that as of late, the actor has been too much to handle. According to sources from the sets, something did not go down well between the actor and the production house, Contiloe Entertainment Private Ltd. Joshi started behaving unprofessionally and after a while, the producers lost their cool. They decided to have a conversation and end the matter once and for all.
Of course, Chanakya’s character according to history didn’t last long enough to raise Ashok. But that did not stop the writers from fictionalizing the character to their convenience. Now that the makers and the actor have decided to call it quits, they have moved the inevitable death before time. It’s strange that no one is taking offence to all the new developments to the script to suit their own version of "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat." While Joshi was there, it was an interesting daily soap that caught everyone’s attention and gave decent numbers too.
Let’s hope no matter how non-factual it is that the show goes on and the story continues. Let’s see what happens next after Chanakya’s ‘timely’ death.
