Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat is an Indian TV serial based on the life of Ashoka the Great. Starting from the childhood, the show is covering all the tid-bits of Mahan Samrat Ashok. While the show is high on script, VFX and other elements, it is no less as far as the acting is concerned. It looks like Contiloe Productions have done quite an amazing job while selecting Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat Cast.
Here, let us check out the Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat Cast
Siddharth Nigam as Ashoka
14 year old Siddharth Nigam is seen as Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat. The young Ashoka made his acting debut with Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom 3 where he was seen as little Aamir Khan. Interestingly, this young lad is a national level gymnast perhaps that is why Late Shri Yash Chopra selected him to play the role of baby Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3. Quite fit, Siddharth also has a 6 pack ab (We are sure you must have seen them already!).

Before Dhoom 3, he was also seen in a Bournvita ad. Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat has already bagged him 2 awards including Best Debutant and Most Stylish Awards.
Sumedh Mudgalkar as Sushim Maurya
18 year old super cute Sumedh Mudgalkar fondly called as Beat King is essaying the role of Sushim Maurya. While, he is hated for his onscreen character, he is loved off screen and has a tremendous fan following. The reason being, he has been the finalist in Dance Maharashta Dance as well as DID – 4.
What’s amazing is the fact that Sumedh is not a trained dancer but a dancer born out of passion who learnt dance just by watching videos. He always aspired to become an actor. Sushim is his second role. Earlier, he was seen as Raghav in Channel V’s Dil Dosti Dance.
Tunisha Sharma as Ahankara
Ahankara is the latest addition in the Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat cast. The role of Ahankara is essayed by Tunisha Sharma. Tunisha too is 18 year old. She made her TV debut as Chaand Kawar in Sony TV’s Maharana Pratap serial which is also run by the same production house – Contiloe Productions.

Here in the serial she is shown as the daughter of Ujjaini raja. While, she was linked with Sushim in the start, it now looks like Ahankara will fall in love with Ashoka.
Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat Cast – Manoj Joshi as Chanakya
A famous face in Bollywood, Manoj Joshi often comes around as a jovial figure in all the Hindi films. However, when it comes to theaters, he has been essaying the role of Chanakya from more than 15 years. And who else could essay the role of Chanakya so well in Colors Ashoka TV serial other than Manoj Joshi.
Sameer Dharmadhikari as Samrat Bindusar
Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat cast would have been incomplete without Sameer Dharmadhikari. Glad, that the makers of Ashoka TV serial decided to rope in Sameer Dharmadhikari as Samrat Bindusar.

This is not his first historical serial. Earlier he was seen as King of Jhansi in Zee TV’s Rani Lakshmi Bai, then as Maharaja Shantanu in Star Plus’ Mahabharat followed by Buddha’s father Raja Suddodhana in Buddha serial. No wonder, whenever there is a historical serial which demands a royal king, Sameer is in and he plays the role exceptionally well!

He thinks he is a Mauryavanshi but in reality he is not Bindusar’s son but Justin and Rani Noor’s son. This make him half Khorasani and half Greek. He is good natured Rajkumar but only time will tell whether he remains good or turns evil under the influence of all the evil people around him such as his mother Noor, grandfather Mir Khorasan and grandmother Rajmata Helena.
