Chanakya, along with his disciple Radhagupta takes them to Pataliputra and Dharma becomes a royal physician. Ashoka starts by working as a horsekeeper and on numerous occasions, he impresses Bindusara and they both develop a bond, which is despised by Bindusara’s eldest son Sushima, his mother Charumitra, Mir Khorasan, Helena and, her son Justin. Sushima and Ashoka are always at loggerheads and Sushima conspires against Ashoka many times, but every time, Ashoka manages to escape. One day, Dharma is attacked by some men, who succeed in killing her on her way to the forest, and everyone believes it to be the work of a tiger. Ashoka is devastated by this incident but Bindusara consoles him, and spends time with him. It is later revealed that Dharma is still alive as Chanakya saw the attack coming and therefore replaced Dharma with one of his spies. On Chanakya’s suggestion, Bindusara admits Ashoka to the royal school of Magadha. Ashoka has a hard time initially and is harassed by Sushima and his associates, but is comforted by Bindusara’s third son Siyamak and Acharya Akramak – the martial arts instructor.

He is however tricked into believing that Sushima is being attacked by a tiger and rushes to save him, only to be cheated by Sushima who steals the sword of Chandragupta Maurya which the winner is supposed to take to the finish line. Ashoka is heartbroken and dejected but Bindusara is still impressed by his performance. Bindusara, after seeing Sushima’s victory, decides to make him the crown prince. Ashoka confides in Chanakya and Chanakya stops Sushima’s coronation at the last minute. Chanakya strips Sushima of his sword after the latter insults and tries to kill him. Ashoka is then united with Dharma, who consoles him.
