ZEE5, India’s largest homegrown OTT platform, announced the world digital premiere of ‘Bimbisara’.

Sharma and others in secondary roles. The film will be available on ZEE5 from 21st October 2022 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam & Hindi.
The film begins in the year 500 B.C when Bimbisara (Kalyan Ram) is the emperor of the Trigartala empire. A vile egomaniac, his violent antics have no limit. However, his ego trip ends when his banished twin brother Devadatta ambushes him and teleports him — through a magical mirror — to the present-day world.
What happens when this authoritarian king is reincarnated as a suit wearing rich man in a modern-day world?Bimbisara's arrival favours Subramanya Sastri (VivanBhatena) and godman Kethu (Ayyappa P Sharma), who have their eyes set on an Ayurveda book titled Dhanwanthari which is safely locked in Bimbisara's treasure vault, which only he can open.
With opulence and ferocity in virtually every frame of the film, Bimbisara is enhanced by uncompromising action, its striking camera work, and impressive visual effects. The film is surely to impress the socio-fantasy lovers of cinema who like scale, historical characters and VFX.
