"A team of at least 500 ..., 29 Jan 2015 [cached]
"A team of at least 500 people are working on this show," Abhimanyu Singh, CEO, Contiloe, that's producing the show, told IANS.
The attempt on the channel's part is to delve into the pages of history to highlight Ashoka's journey to becoming the great emperor, heroic warrior and the epic legend that he was.
Our research team has worked hard to read various books abd anecdotes on Ashoka, and while we have dramatised the story, we have taken care to avoid distorting facts," Singh said.
He added that Chakravartin... will resonate with present day audience due to the sheer relevance of his ideas of democracy, freedom of speech and expression and the prevalence of the Ashoka chakra and emblem on every coin and note.
"It's the story of a creator, who was misintrepeted in many ways," he said.
As many as around 20 episodes of the show have already been shot across Jaisalmer, Kerala, Mumbai's Film City and the set here in Karjat.
What really helped the team to recreate the Mauryan era was visual effects.
"The VFX have helped us up the production values to a large extent and they complement the storytelling," said Singh, for whom "it is an honour to make a show on a man who made India".

"It is a complete family drama," assures producer Abhimanyu Singh of Contiloe Films.

He wants to suck your blood, for God's sake," exclaims Singh.
It's difficult to pinpoint when the vampire transmuted from the spine-chilling figure of Anne Rice stories to the seductive hotties in Twilight, Blood Ties and True Blood on whom women pin dangling hopes of nocturnal escapades, chaste kisses that do not light up the vampire's blood lust and, of course, the ever-present danger of the vampire getting the sudden urge to knock back a few pints of your A-negative.
The vampire in his new form, feels Abhimanyu Singh, head of Contiloe Films, is the extreme of the quintessential bad boy, the urge to tame who has defined women from time immemorial. He attributes the vampire's "not so colourful" aspects to the mushrooming of the interracial (or should we say interspecies) love affairs between vampires and innocent girls who fall for their power. "They are unattainable; hence they are fascinating to women."
This is precisely why vampire stories, he feels, could work in India.

Adgully Exclusive | Abhimanyu Singh and the tale of Contiloe Posted by Adgully Bureau | December 1st, 2010 at 8:30 am Advertisement
Contiloe Entertainment Private Ltd was started in 1995 by Abhimanyu Singh, and it recognizes itself as "producers of factual and non-factual programming".
Adgully caught up with Abhimanyu Singh, CEO and Founder, Contiloe Entertainment Private Ltd., to find out more about the production house's expectations and ambitions with the latest launch.
Talking about the challenges of coming out with its latest show, Singh says, "The story and the main character was the biggest challenge.
Singh further adds, "It is not about Indian or international, it is about story telling. It is about how your people accept the stories put across to them. Our story telling is very Indian in nature, it's the way the Indians like a story to unfold."
Singh says that he doesn't ever draw parallels with the success of other shows and only concentrates on the content. Since, success or failure for a show is driven by the success or failure of the content.
Talking about telecasting the show every Saturday, Singh says, "The audiences' mind is more relaxed towards the weekends and so the consumption pattern changes. So a different genre based show of this nature is received better on these days."
Singh adds that the credit for bringing together the right star cast should go to the channel- Sony Entertainment Channel (SET).
Elaborating on the production house's key USP, Singh says, "We believe in doing everything to which we can do justice to and so we like to be fair with the way we conduct our production. We have always tried to take on more challenging shows and we have done long running shows."
He has an urge to create more historical shows, and he believes that there are many stories within India which still haven't been told. "It is definitely my ambition to make an inspirational series on Mahatma Gandhi," he adds.
He believes that production is a very challenging space as it gets fragmented with more and more producers coming in. "To think about content for next two years is very difficult, because the people are changing very fast, the profiles are changing very fast. The very fact that we have survived as a TV production company and grown progressively is a great accomplishment," Singh adds.
"I think the future is bright for all production houses. I think our ability to be able to think alternate content, put shows together and give quality to broadcasters sets us apart from other production houses," he signs off. | By Prabha Hegde [prabha(at)] Tags: Aajaa Mahi Vay, Abhimanyu Singh, Comedy Ka King Kaun, Contiloe Entertainment, Ek Veer Stree ki Kahaani...
