Based on the life of the Mauryan dynasty's Prince Asoka, this elaborate Bollywood epic dramatizes one man's transformation from a vengeful and cunning warrior into a legendary leader and teacher of Buddhism. After ruthlessly vanquishing a neighboring province, the guilt-ridden ruler (Shahrukh Khan) exiles himself and seeks redemption in this historical drama packed with battle scenes, political intrigue and a star-crossed romance.
