Ekta Kapoor's upcoming show "Chandra - Nandni" will not be shot in cramped TV sets, but at real locations.
The show will beam on Star Plus.
The actors will be shooting in areas of Patna where Magadh and Pataliputra used to exist.
"Ekta Kapoor is bringing her most prestigious project till date.
And when she is so closely involved in every aspect of the show's creative aspect, you can expect nothing better than the best, " said a source close to the show developers.
The source added: "The Mauryan era was prevalent in Pataliputra which is modern day Patna.
So, she plans on taking the cast and shooting there to stay true to the authenticity on the show. "
Rajat Tokas has been roped in to play the role of Chandragupta Maurya - who was the founder of the Maurya Empire, and Shweta Basu Prasad will be seen as Nandni.
