Mumbai: "Mahabharat" is set to be made from Draupadi's perspective, and on-screen character Deepika Padukone will play the focal character. She has collaborated with producer Madhu Mantena and will create the film as well.

Deepika turned producer with "Chhapaak", a film inspired by the life of corrosive assault survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. Her second production, "Mahabharat", will be seen through the eyes of Draupadi which will give a new take on the legendary story.

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

It will be made in a progression of parts with the first scheduled to release in Diwali 2021.

Mantena said: “While we have all consumed the ‘Mahabharat’ all our lives, the uniqueness of our film is seeing the same story from Draupadi, who is one of the most significant heroines in our country’s cultural history.

"Also, Deepika isn't only the biggest Indian actress today, yet somebody who can take this narrative across borders. If it weren't with her, we would not be making this film on such an eager scale."
