Shakuni did not hate Pandavas, his real enemy was Bhishma.

Shakuni, the Prince of Gandharva and the brother of Gandhari, is believed to be the main reason behind the war of Mahabharata. Shakuni Was Also Called as "Saubala".

The Gandhara King had 100 sons and 1 daughter. Shakuni was the 100th son of Subala, he is also called as Saubala. Shakuni’s real name was Subalottam which means the best son of Subala.

Whenever people hear the name ‘Shakuni’, they think that he was bad and evil. It is believed that it was Shakuni who was also an illusionist, practically masterminded the great war of Kurukshetra.

But did you know in reality, his main rival was not Pandavas, but his own brother-in-law Dhritrashtra who was Hastinapur king and Bheeshma Pitamah.

Shakuni sister married Dhritrastra who was blind. Shakuni was against this marriage so he decided to take revenge against Bheeshma who brought the proposal of marriage. Another reason behind the revenge was that ancestors of Hastinapur destroyed the entire clan of Gandhara. So, Shakuni vowed that he also would end the entire Kuru line.

Shakuni poisoned Duryodhana against Pandavas to initiate war.

And also we should know the fact about the Shakuni's broken leg. Shakuni’s leg was injury by his father to give him a constant reminder of atrocities that the Kuru clan had committed on them, and take revenge.
