Plot: The time is 32 BC. King Asoka’s fierce battle against Kalinga claims 100,000 lives & the carnage moves the king to go on a quest to save mankind. He brings together the nine wise men from all over the world who harness the powers of nature and contain them in a medallion. The medallion is entrusted to the Emperor’s son, Masa, until its rightful owner can be found.
2000 years later, Masa, still alive comes across Ashok, the son of a slain police officer. The 8-year old has a great desire to help others like his hero father. Realizing Ashoka is the one he has been waiting for Masa entrusts the medallion to the boy and the fades to dust, his mission accomplished.
The magical medallion gives Ashok superhuman powers. With his new powers Ashoka becomes a hero and a media darling. Slowly his school work begins to suffer and he is warned that he must not shirk responsibility or misuse his abilities.
Box-office Expectations: Animation films generally dont do very well in India and Ashoka The Hero may not prove to be an exception.
