Concept – *”Raja Vikramaditya & his Sinhasan Battisi”*
Singhasan Battisi is a collection of Indian folk tales. The title literally means “thirty-two (tales) of the throne”. In the frame story, the 11th century king Bhoja discovers the throne of the legendary ancient king Vikramaditya (also known as Bikramjit). The throne has 32 statues, who are actually apsaras that had been turned into stone due to a curse. Each of the apsaras tells Bhoja a story about the life and adventures of Vikramaditya, in order to convince him that he is not deserving of Vikramaditya’s throne.
