The ‘Mastani’ of the Bollywood, Deepika Padukone to come together with Madhu Mantena to make Mahabharata with a twist. But they are planning to deliver Ramayana to the audience first.
Producer Madhu Mantena said that this Mahabharata will be shown through the point of view of Draupadi, a prominent character of Mahabharata. This film will clearly depict women harrasment as per incident of ‘Cheer Haran’ from Mahabharata. Mantena further said that they don’t want to take the risk of speeding the process as mythological stories can be a controversial issue, so they are in the phase of researching and drafting any results coming out before finalising. As per Madhu, Deepika’s strong acting skills is a perfect fit for the story to be placed with Draupadi’s point of view.
Creating mythological films takes a huge responsibility of affecting the mind of this generation, so Madhu wants to take things slowly. The starcast and other major parts of this movie will be announced around Diwali this year.
