This is indeed a great news for all the fans of Deepika, isn’t it?
As reported by IANS, Deepika said, “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.”
“It will be made in a series of parts with the first one slated to release in Diwali 2021. Producer Madhu Mantena further added, “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. 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.”
Meanwhile, Deepika has wrapped up the shoot of ‘Chhapaak’ where she is playing acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the movie also has Vikrant Massey. It is slated to release on January 10, 2020. Also, she will star in ’83’ where she is playing Romi Dev, Kapil Dev’s (Ranveer Singh) wife. The movie is based on the legendary cricketer of Indian cricket team Kapil Dev and Indian’s victory in the World Cup.
