i can't understand why wiki mentioned the film asoka. the makers of the film state in the begining of the film that this film does not claim to be based on true happenings.it was a commercial film made for general public and did not represent the true life and character of ashoka.please spare us the commercial dose of bollywood. thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:32, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
I added an "In Popular Culture" section to put it under. SaimdusanTalk|Contribs 03:04, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
the image given is of Devi, not Kaurwaki. it is written written so in his memoir "Aponkatha" which describes the made in 1910 painting as that of "Bidisha Debi standing at the railings of Sanchi Stupa". Also it was Devi who was Ashoka's first and most favourite wife. She was also the empress (Maharani). Kaurwaki was simply a Rani who rose to power after Devi's early death. Also it was Devi who led Ashoka to Buddhism as she was born a Buddhist, unlike his other queens who embraced Buddhism under his orders. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Roopshah (talk • contribs) 10:39, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
