Deepika Padukone Says Playing Draupadi In Mahabharata Adaptation Is ‘Role Of A Lifetime’

Actress Deepika Padukone on Friday announced her next project as a producer, a retelling of Mahabharata from the point of view of Draupadi, reported news agency IANS. The 33-year-old actress also confirmed that she will play Draupadi in the movie, which she is co-producing with Madhu Mantena on a grand scale. Deepika Padukone, who has featured in period films like Bajirao Mastani and “Padmaavat,” said that playing Draupadi in the adaptation of Mahabharata is a ‘role of a lifetime.’ She also explained why the film will be made through Draupadi’s perspective.

Deepika Padukone said in a statement, “I’m absolutely thrilled and honoured to be playing the role of Draupadi. I truly believe that it is the role of a lifetime. While the Mahabharata is popularly known for its mythological tales and cultural influence, many of life’s lessons are also derived from the Mahabharata but most often from its men. Telling it with this fresh and new perspective will not only be interesting but also very significant.”

Filmmaker Madhu Mantena, who was earlier a part of Phantom Films quartet with Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Vikas Bahl, emphasised the film’s USP is it being told through Draupadi’s narrative: “While we have all consumed the Mahabharata 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.”

Madhu Mantena also added that they could envision the film on an ambitious scale because of Deepika. “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.”
