This was surely the biggest rally ever held in Mumbai on 5th August 2012 to save any TV show. Manish Wadhwa, who has played the role of ‘Chaanakya’ in ‘Chandragupta Maurya’ also participated in the rally. Moreover, Sooraj Thapar (Dhananda), Tej Sapru (Amatya Rakshas) and other important characters of Chandragupta Maurya show joined rally with Mauryans to demand NOC from Turners so that it could be re-telecasted on SONY TV.
Mauryans were really enthusiastic and enchanted the songs of Chandragupta Maurya show. It only shows the popularity of this famous historical epic and its fan following.
CGM fans expressed their anger and urged Turners to release the NOC as quickly as possible. They also said, “CGM was really creating the atmosphere of patriotism among Indians, so these kinds of serial should never be stopped.”
Meanwhile, this Mumbai rally became very famous and many media houses covered this. At the end, fans took pledge to continue their protest until CGM is restarted.
