Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat is one of the few Indian shows that’s really epic! That’s why while watching it, we couldn’t help but notice a few similarities between this show and one of the most epic show in the world – Game Of Thrones. Before you kill me for even thinking like that, just breathe a little and read on.
1) Scale and grandeur
Both shows have invested a lot of money and work in the sets for the throne room and the entire kingdom to look as opulent as viewers had imagined them to be!
2) Twists and turns
Well, the twists of Game Of Thrones are legendary, but Ashoka too is managing to shock the audience quite often with their unexpected plot lines, deaths and betrayals!
The underdog is always the most important character in the show. We have Jon Snow in Game Of Thrones and we have Ashoka in Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat!
4) The importance of a sword
Everyone knows the importance of a sword made of Valyrian steel, in the same way, Ashoka too has to struggle to get the sword he rightfully deserves.
5) Similarities between Chanakya and Tyrion Lannister.
Chanakya has often been considered as the pioneer of the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics. He is often termed as the greatest thinker and diplomat India has ever produced. We’ve seen Tyrion ace as the Hand Of The King in Season 2, and everyone knows (even Cersei) that he is, by far, the smartest man in Westeros!
