When contacted, Ankur Nayyar shared his excitement and said, “It was wonderful to receive the opportunity to play Ambhi Kumar in Sony Entertainment Television’s show Chandragupta Maurya. The character and his personality attracted me, as Ambhi Kumar had no limitation and abided by no rules. I was quite curious of the role. While preparing for the character I was very cautious, as the role is carefree but at the same time I had to make sure that it does not look over the top and there is no inhibition while I perform. Getting to know that I will be working again with Faisal just added to my excitement. I am going to play a character extremely contrasting to my previous role and I have got an opportunity to showcase my versatility and feel fortunate to be associating myself with Sony Entertainment Television again.”
