Here is a sneak peek from Day 1 of the remarkable journey of the Magnum Opus Show, Porus. It has been shot amidst the picturesque beauty of Khao Sok, Thailand. Porus is a historical show produced by Swastik Productions based on an Indian warrior Porus  life.

 

The show is produced by Siddharth Kumar Tewary, who has produced shows like  Mahabharat, Suryaputra Karn, Shani and much more.

Porus  was a king of the Pauravas, in Punjab. His region was between the Hydaspes (Jhelum) and Acesines (Chenab) rivers. Porus fought against Alexander the Great in the Battle of the Hydaspes, thought to be fought at the site of modern-day Mong, Punjab. Alexander was however greatly impressed by his adversary and not only reinstated him as a satrap of his own kingdom but also granted him dominion over lands to the south-east extending until the Hyphasis (Beas).

After Alexander’s death in 323 BC, Porus was assassinated by one of Alexander’s generals named Eudemus sometime between 321 and 315 BC.
