We hope that Naagin’s ardent viewers enjoy watching Chandrakanta : Ekta Kapoor

As viewers prepare to bid adieu to the unprecedented leader on Indian television, Naagin 2, COLORS is all set to launch a fantastical tale of love and revenge portrayed against the backdrop of magic and mysticism, Chandrakanta. Promising to be a visual treat and every fantasy lover’s delight, Chandrakanta will showcase an epic power struggle between two rival Aiyaar kingdoms, Vijaygarh and Suryagarh. Putting the spotlight on the conflicting yet fervid relationship between princess Chandrakanta (Madhurima Tuli) and prince Veer (Vishal Aditya Singh), the show is laden with myths, legends and magic. Chandrakanta, produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms, will mystify audiences starting 24th June 2017, every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00 PM on COLORS.

Commenting on the launch of the show, Raj Nayak, COO - Viacom 18 said, “For two back-to-back seasons Naagin has enjoyed the status of being a favorite of the viewers. It’s their confidence in our content that has allowed us to explore this genre further. The recent success of costume dramas and fantasy offerings not only on television but also in films is a testimony that our viewers have evolved, and are willing to explore different narratives. We are thrilled to collaborate with Ekta Kapoor’s creative intellect yet again to showcase a unique rendition of a story which, though has been narrated before, leaves a lot of scope for creating a cohesive viewing experience.”

Chandrakanta narrates the tale of Vijaygarh’s lost princess who lost her family and kingdom to a power war waged by Naugarh’s evil Queen Iravati (Urvashi Dholakia). While many believed the family to be wiped out, an infant Chandrakanta was found in a river by a simple and loving aiyaar fishing couple in Suryagarh. Her true identity lost in the war, Chandrakanta grows up to be a strong warrior-like woman, whose focus and strong determination are unparalleled. But, her real journey starts when she crosses paths with Queen Iravati’s son, Prince Veerendra Singh, who finds himself enamored by Chandrakanta’s entrancing beauty and falls hopelessly in love with her when he comes to battle Suryagarh’s Prince Shivdutt (c).

Spread across a sprawling 32,000 square feet, Chandrakanta’s sets, designed by National Award winning Art Director Chandravadan More, highlight regality and opulence of the magical realms. Three distinct zones, Queen Iravati’s darbar in Vijaygarh, Prince Shivdutt’s darbar in Suryagarh, and Chandrakanta’s foster parents’ fisherman’s shack, have been authentically created to form the perfect setting for Chandrakanta and Veerendra’s love saga. Intricately designed costumes, by Sameera Ahmad, offer a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours which add a dimension to the complexity of the monolithic and prodigious backdrop.

Said Producer Ekta Kapoor from Balaji Telefilms at the launch, “Chandrakanta is a very special show for us and it has very big shoes to fill. That said, we were filled with excitement over the prospect of creating this show. The plot is gritty, complex, passionate and is laced with top class VFX which will transport the viewers into alternate reality. We hope that Naagin’s ardent viewers and voracious fantasy-fiction aficionados enjoy watching Chandrakanta and support this mammoth venture.”

Speaking on playing the title, actor Madhurima Tuli said, “Royalty by birth and a warrior by deeds, Chandrakanta has the innate ability to melt even the most ruthless warlords, outlaws and savage beasts. She is the perfect example of beauty with brains, and her fearless attitude and lack of vanity set her apart from every other woman. Chandrakanta’s focus is legendary, as much as her love for Veerendra. I am looking forward to this new journey and hope to live up to the audience’s expectations.”

Adding further, actor Vishal Aditya Singh aka Veerendra said, “Veerendra is fierce and ambitious, making him a strong warrior, who is ready to face anything that comes in his way. A charmer with a way with the ladies, Prince Veerendra will find himself allured by Chandrakanta’s beauty, intelligence and bravery. He’s obedient to a fault; he will be caught between his loyalty to his mother and his passionate love for Chandrakanta. It’s an honour for me to be a part of a path-breaking show and work with two entertainment masterminds, Balaji Telefilms and COLORS.”

Along with Madhurima Tuli, Vishal Aditya Singh, Urvashi Dholakia and Shaad Randhawa, Chandrakanta will feature an ensemble cast including actors Shilpa Sakhlani as Queen Ratnaprabha (Chandrakanta’s birth mother), Sandeep Ranjora as King Jai Singh (Chandrakanta’s birth father), Prerna Wanvari as Vishaka (Chandrakanta’s aunt), Nirmal Soni as Djinn (Chandrakanta’s best friend),  Shruti Golap as Ruchi (Chandrakanta’s adoptive aiyaar mother), Sayyad Mohammad Iqbal as Bheema (Chandrakanta’s adoptive aiyaar father), Purvi Mundada as Champa (Veerendra’s best friend), Amit Sinha as Kroor Singh (Shivdutt’s confidante) and many more.

Implementing Inheritance in Hibernate

We will create a Mobile class, which is extended by two other classes. Both SamsungMobile and BlackberryMobile have one more variable samsungModelType and bbModel respectively.

import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import javax.persistence.Table;

@Table(name = "mobile_details")
public class Mobile {
    @Id @GeneratedValue
    private int mobileId;
    private String mobileName;
    //getters and setters

import javax.persistence.Entity;
public class SamsungMobile extends Mobile {
    private String samsungModelType;
    //getters and setters

import javax.persistence.Entity;

public class BlackberryMobile extends Mobile{
    public String bbModel;
    //getters and setters

public class MobileTest {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Mobile mobile=new Mobile();
        mobile.setMobileName("Test Mobile Set");
        SamsungMobile samsung=new SamsungMobile();
        samsung.setMobileName("Samsung A series");
        BlackberryMobile blackberry=new BlackberryMobile();
        blackberry.setMobileName("Blackberry Curve Series");
        // create a session factory
        SessionFactory sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
        // get the session from session factory
        Session savesession = sessionFactory.openSession();
        // to save the object in hibernate       

When you execute MobileTest, following queries are fired:
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, DTYPE, mobileId) values (?, 'Mobile', ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, samsungModelType, DTYPE, mobileId) values (?, ?, 'SamsungMobile', ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, bbModel, DTYPE, mobileId) values (?, ?, 'BlackberryMobile', ?)

Although we have marked SamsungMobile and BlackberryMobile as Entity class, but the hibernate has not created the seprate table, instead it has mapped the details in the base class table itself. This is because, by default hibernate use Single Table Strategy.

You can change the strategy, by added the @Inheritance annotation in the base class. e.g @Inheritance (strategy=InheritanceType.SINGLE_TABLE)

where, InheritanceType can be SINGLE_TABLE, TABLE_PER_CLASS or JOINED

mobile_details will have (DTYPE, mobileId, mobileName, samsungModelType, bbModel) columns with three rows having values (Mobile,1,Test Mobile Set,NULL,NULL), (SamsungMobile,2,Samsung A series,A5,NULL) and (BlackberryMobile,3,Blackberry Curve Series,NULL,C10)

where the column DTYPE contains the name of the entity class. Dtype is called Discriminator Type.

You can change the Discriminator Type, by adding @DiscriminatorColumn annotation in the base class. e.g:

@DiscriminatorColumn(name="mobile_type", discriminatorType=DiscriminatorType.STRING)

where, name will set the column name (which was previously the 'DType').
discriminatorType can be STRING, INTEGER or CHAR. By default STRING is the DiscriminatorType.

The discriminatorType by default stores the class name, but you can change it by adding @DiscriminatorValue annotation in the child class. e.g
@DiscriminatorValue ("Blackberry") and @DiscriminatorValue ("Samsung") can be added in BlackberryMobile and SamsungMobile respectively.

Now when you run MobileTest, it will fire below queries:
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, mobile_type, mobileId) values (?, 'Mobile', ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, samsungModelType, mobile_type, mobileId) values (?, ?, 'Samsung', ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, bbModel, mobile_type, mobileId) values (?, ?, 'Blackberry', ?)

mobile_details will have (mobile_type,mobileId,mobileName,samsungModelType,bbModel) columns with three rows:
(Mobile,1,Test Mobile Set,NULL,NULL)
(Samsung,2,Samsung A series,A5,NULL)
(Blackberry,3,Blackberry Curve Series,NULL,C10)

Example Of Inheritance With Table Per Class Strategy
@DiscriminatorColumn and @DiscriminatorValue are not needed in table per class strategy and you need to select strategy as InheritanceType.TABLE_PER_CLASS.

import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import javax.persistence.Inheritance;
import javax.persistence.InheritanceType;
import javax.persistence.Table;

@Table(name = "mobile_details")
@Inheritance (strategy=InheritanceType.TABLE_PER_CLASS)
public class Mobile {
    @Id @GeneratedValue
    private int mobileId;
    private String mobileName;
    //getters and setters
import javax.persistence.Entity;
public class SamsungMobile extends Mobile {
    private String samsungModelType;
    //getters and setters

import javax.persistence.Entity;
public class BlackberryMobile extends Mobile{
    public String bbModel;
    //getters and setters
When you execute MobileTest, following queries will be fired.
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, mobileId) values (?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into SamsungMobile (mobileName, samsungModelType, mobileId) values (?, ?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into BlackberryMobile (mobileName, bbModel, mobileId) values (?, ?, ?)
Separate tables for each class will be created. Parent class properties are inherited and they form the separate columns in the child tables.

Example Of Inheritance With Joined Strategy
We need to set strategy as InheritanceType.JOINED in the parent class.

When you run the MobileTest class after adding below line in parent Mobile class:
@Inheritance (strategy=InheritanceType.JOINED)
These queries will be executed:
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, mobileId) values (?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, mobileId) values (?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into SamsungMobile (samsungModelType, mobileId) values (?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into mobile_details (mobileName, mobileId) values (?, ?)
Hibernate: insert into BlackberryMobile (bbModel, mobileId) values (?, ?)
  • mobile_details table will have two columns (mobileId, mobileName) and three rows: (1,Test Mobile Set), (2,Samsung A series) and (3,Blackberry Curve Series)
  • SamsungMobile table will have two columns (samsungModelType,mobileId) and one row:(A5,2)
  • BlackberryMobile table will have two columns (bbModel,mobileId) and one row:(C10,3)

But in a dignified cultured society with better sensibilities, matters have to be drastically different.
