Deepika Padukone To Co-Produce Mahabharat & To Feature In The Role Of Draupadi
Deepika Padukone without a doubt is one of the biggest names in the industry right now. The actor turned producer with her last release Chhapaak and although the film might not have been able to make big bucks at the ticket windows, everyone applauded Deepika for both – her performance in the film and the fact that she went ahead with such an ambitious project. Currently, Deepika Padukone is gearing up for Mahabharat, her next project as producer. The actress will be co-producing the mega project with Madhu Matena and will feature in the role Draupadi.
During an interview with a leading daily, Deepika spoke about the various complexities of executing a project on such a scale. She said, “Making the Mahabharat is not like making any other film. From the scale of production to the budget and costumes, it will take five times longer to execute. I cannot turn it around in a short time frame. It is my most ambitious project. After a lot of thought. I was busy with Chhapaak promotions, so there was no time to sit down and discuss [this film]. We have yet to ascertain the cast and crew.”
Deepika Padukone will next be seen as Ranveer Singh’s on-screen wife in the Kapil Dev biopic titled ’83.
