Q.

There is a story about a king in ancient times who goes to the forest.There he meets a rishi and stays with him in his kutiya.Though he is already married but here he falls in love with the rishi's daughter'Sharmishtha" and marries her also.
That is all I can remember about this story.This was also shown on TV once quite long back.
Can anyone remember the name of the story and the names of the major characters and a source to get this story.Thanks.
