Deepika Padukone has now teamed up with Madhu Mantena for Mahabharat and will essay the role of Draupadi.
“I’m absolutely thrilled and honoured to be essaying the role of Draupadi. I truly believe that it is the role of a lifetime. While the Mahabharat is popularly known for its mythological tales and cultural influence, many of life’s lessons are also derived from the Mahabharat but most often from its men. Telling it with this fresh and new perspective will not only be interesting but also very significant,” said the pretty lady.
While Madhu said, “While we have all consumed the Mahabharat all our lives, the uniqueness of our film is seeing the same story from the point of view of Draupadi, who is one of the most significant heroines in our country’s cultural history.”
He added “And Deepika is not just the biggest Indian actress today, but someone who can take this narrative across borders. If it weren’t with her, we would not be making this film on such an ambitious scale.”
Well, it will be really exciting to see Deepika in the role of Draupadi. Earlier actresses like Vidya Balan, Roopa Ganguly and many others have essayed the role of Draupadi.
