Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan Produced by Sagar Pictures (English: Prithviraj Chauhan, the Brave Warrior of the Land) is an Indian historical drama broadcast on Star Plus. The story is based on Prithviraj Raso, the Apabhramsha poem by Chand Bardai which portrays the life of Prithviraj Chauhan, a 12th-century emperor in India.[1] Anas Rashid plays Prithviraj Chauhan and Rajat tokas plays Younger Prithviraj chauhan.


The drama is based on Prithviraj Chauhan, a ruler of the Chauhan dynasty. Proficient in military skills, he took the throne of Ajmer at age 13 after his father died in battle. His maternal grandfather, Anangpal Tomar, ruler of Delhi, declared Prithviraj Chauhan his heir after discovering his courage and bravery. Chauhan falls in love with Sanyogita (Samyukta), the daughter of his enemy, Jaichand of Kannauj and abducted her at her swayamvara ceremony.


The serial is based on the tales of the three most powerful ruling Rajput families of that time: those of Ajmer, Kannauj and Delhi. Roopsundari and Kamlavati were daughters of the King of Delhi, Anangpal I. Kamlavati was married to Someshwar Chauhan of Ajmer and Roopsundari to Vijaypal of Kannauj. Someshwar and Kamlavati were worried about not having an heir. They offered prayers and sought blessings from the God for a child. Someshwar thanks Vijaypal and Roopsundari for supporting them. Kamlavati suggests Someshwar marry another woman so that the dynasty will have an heir, but he dismisses that suggestion. Finally, Someshwar is happy to know that Kamlavati will soon conceive and proclaims it. After some time, Kamlavati and Someshwar pray to God and are blessed with a son they name Prithviraj Chauhan III. Prithvi is sent to Gurukul to study and gain martial skill. A brilliant student, Prithvi attends the Vansaj of Eklavya who can hit targets with a bow and arrow by merely hearing them. He also learns from Shabd Bhedi Baan Vidya.
