UTV Motion Pictures has bought the rights of author Ashwin Sanghi's 2010 bestseller Chanakya's Chant and is set to turn it into a Bollywood blockbuster.

Chanakya's Chant is a novel with alternate accounts of how political strategist Chanakya strove to make Chandragupta Maurya the emperor of Magadha, and a contemporary account of a Brahmin school teacher who grooms a girl from slum to become India's prime minister.

A source revealed that UTV would soon start casting for the film. A UTV spokesperson confirmed that they have acquired the rights of the novel but refrained from divulging any details about the development.
