This historical saga is based on the life of one the most illustrious Indian rulers of ancient India and founder of Mauryan dynasty, Chandragupta Maurya and his wife. The title is amalgamation of their names, Chandra is taken from the king Chandragupta and Nandni is the name of his warrior princess wife. The love-hate relationship of the titular couple is portrayed by Rajat Tokas and Shweta Basu Prasad. In this intense story, Chandragupta defeats Nandnis father and ruler of Magdha, Dhana Nanda, to acquire his kingdom. Despite being married to Durdhara (Saanvi Talwar), Chandragupta marries his enemys daughter, Nandni-who hates him for killing her family- as part of a war treaty.
Instead of being shot in a studio with sets, the show is being shot on actual locations in Patna where ancient kingdoms of Magdha and Patliputra existed.
