In a pinkvilla exclusive we have come to know that Deepika's next Magnum Opus Mahabharata will adapt from the hit novel Palace of Illusions.
Deepika Padukone will essay the role of Draupadi in the historical drama, that is being bankrolled by Reliance Entertainment. The official announcement had DP saying, "We all know the Mahabharat for its mythological tales and socio-cultural influence. We derive many of life’s lessons from the epic. But the narrative we are most familiar with is that of the epic’s leading men. This new perspective will be not only interesting but also significant."
The whole film based on Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's book The Palace Of Illusions. It says the same cultural story, just from a very different viewpoint.
Directed by Madhu Mantenna, another big A-list actor is also in talks to play one of the key roles, but nothing has locked as yet."
