The iconic Ancient India ruler King Porus defends his motherland against Alexander the Great in the aptly titled Porus, one of the first Indian series to have been licensed to Japan, where it was picked up by Hulu. A fantasy revenge drama, Phir Laut Aayi Naagin tells a story of love, loss and reincarnation.
