Chitralekha (1964)

When Aryaputra Samant Bijgupt ignores Yashodhara and continues to frequent Rajnartaki Chitralekha, Yashodhara’s father, Mrityunjay, approaches celibate Yogi Kumargiri, who reprimands Chitralekha and asks her to free Bijgupt so that he can marry and sire a heir. She initially refuses, but subsequently decides to abandon her lavish lifestyle, and re-locates to the Ashram of Kumargiri and his male disciples, leaving a disillusioned Bijgupt no choice but to accede to the request of Samrat Chandragupt and marry Yashodhara.

It was based on the 1934 Hindi novel of the same name by Bhagwati Charan Verma about Bijgupta serving under the Maurya Empire and the king Chandragupta Maurya (340 BCE – 298 BCE) and his love for the courtesan Chitralekha.
