Prince Ashoke (Shahrukh Khan), heir to the kingdom of Magadha, gives in to his mother’s (Shilpa Mehta) demands, abandons his princely status, and goes to live in the wilderness for a while. There he meets and falls in love with Kaurwaki (Kareena Kapoor).
He identified himself as Pawan and did not want to reveal his identity. Ashoke has to return to Magadha, but when he returns to find and marry Kaurwaki, Bheema (Rahul Dev) tells him that Kaurwaki and her brother Arya have been killed. Ashoke, devastated, returns home. On the way back, he is attacked and Devi (Hrishitaa Bhatt), who is a Buddhist, saves him and takes care of him until he recovers. As a result, Devi’s marriage with her husband was annulled. Ashoke married her and took her to Magadha, but her father said that since Devi was not of the same race as him, she could not be welcomed. Ashoke left with Devi and lived in Ujjaini. Soon, Devi became pregnant, which sparked jealousy and hatred among Ashoke’s half-siblings. As a result, they plot to kill Devi, but their plan is foiled by Ashoke’s mother, who is killed. Ashoke vows to avenge his mother’s death by killing each of his half-brothers, except the one who led him to Kalinga. Ashoke asked the ruler Kalings to hand over his half-brother and they refused.
Ashoke vows to level Kalinga. Ashoke is unstoppable. Even his best friend Virat (Danny Denzongpa) cannot stop Ashoke. Ashoke went to war with few people knowing that Queen Kalinga was none other than Kaurwaki, who was still alive.
