Hi Prakash,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We suggest you to use "ChartInterior" property of chart model to customize the background color of chart. Since, pie charts does not have interior we can customize background color using "BackInterior" property of chart model which will customize the background of chart area.

Please refer the following code snippet to achieve this.
            //Customizing background of Chart
            model.ChartInterior = new Syncfusion.Drawing.BrushInfo(Syncfusion.Drawing.GradientStyle.Horizontal, new Color[] { Color.Red, Color.Yellow, Color.White });


For your convenience, we have created a simple sample and it can be downloaded from the following link.

Please let us know if you have any concern.
