Drupad reads Kichak’s letter for Bindusar. Bindu is angry to head about Dharma being held captive. He keeps the crown back. Helena says Kichak is playing games with us. Ashoka is dead. We have proof. If he was alive then this news would have reached us earlier. Bindu says Ashoka is alive. His mother said so and she was right. Only a mother can connect with her kid when he is far from her. her faith took her to Ashoka. My son Ashoka is alive! I was feeling I was doing something wrong. Drupad smiles.

Mahamatya offers to send a troop of soldiers who will bring back Dharma and Ashoka safely. Bindu declines. kichak has challenged a father and husband. I forgave him once when I refused to listen to Acharya Chanakya. It was the biggest mistake of my life. I will punish him with my own hands. On this maha shivratri I will become his Maha Kaal. Sushim also wants to come along. Bindu is proud to hear him say so. Sushim is in tears of anger / insult. I hope Kichak kills Ashoka and his mother before we reach there. I will kill you with Kichak’s help then! He asks his father to hurry up. We only have two days till Maha Shivratri. Bindu orders everyone to make preps to leave.
Prpecap: Kichak asks Dharma about Ashoka. Where is he? Dharma says he will come just like death comes. He asks her where he will come from! Raise a hand to hurt me and see! Kichak gets up the stage and picks up his sword to hurt her. Ashoka shouts from inside the statue. It breaks!
