Abhirucita (अभिरुचित) is the name of a Vidyādhara and the destined husband of Aśokamālā, as mentioned in the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 52. Accordingly as a heavenly voice said in the presence of Naravāhanadatta, Alaṅkāravatī and Aśokamālā: “... that very Vidyādharī, Aśokamālā, who was in old time cursed by her father, has now been born as a woman under the same name. And this appointed end of her curse has now arrived. She shall now repair to her Vidyādhara home and enter her own body, which is there. There she, remembering her curse, shall live happily with a Vidyādhara prince named Abhirucita, who shall become her husband”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Abhirucita, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
