Deepika to play Draupadi in Aamir’s Mahabharata?


Aamir Khan got everyone talking ever since he expressed his desire to recreate ancient epic Mahabharata on celluloid. And now an exciting piece of news suggests that Bollywood’s most beautiful actress Deepika Padukone may come on board to play the character of Draupadi in Aamir’s film.

We hear that Aamir’s dream project will be maid on humongous budget. If reports are to be believed, the magnum opus will be bankrolled by none other than Mukesh Ambani.

The canvas of the Mahabharata is so huge that casting for the film will become a task in itself. According to a webloid report, Deepika is being considered to essay the role of Panchali. But, we wonder if the actress will come on board for a mythological film after what she had to go through for portraying queen Padmavati in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical fiction drama.

Earlier reports of Aamir having second thoughts about Mahabharata also made the headlines. At the time speculations concluded that Khan too is considering touching the mythological genre post the hardship that the “Padmaavat” team had to face at the hands of fringe groups

Well, only time will unfold if these two stalwarts chose passion over pain and set an example that it is not easy to suffocate spirit of Bollywood filmmakers and actors.
