A reliable source from Balaji reveals to us that members
from the Ekta clan will be playing some of the pivotal roles in the epic that
is to be aired on 9X. While it is being contemplated who among Karan Patel and
Shabbir Ahluwalia will essay the role of Arjun, the role of the younger Pandava
brother Sahdev, has been assigned to
Jatin Shah. The bad boy of television, Chetan Hansraj, will play the role of
the strongest Pandava, Bhim, while Hiten Tejwani will get to play the role of either Karan or Yudhisthir.
The two beauties of television, Anita Hassanandani and Gauri
Pradhan, are vying for the role of Draupadi but it has been heard that if Ekta
feels that they do not fit the bill, she plans to conduct a nation wide hunt
for an actor to be the face of the Pandavas wife. So who will be the lucky new face
to join the Balaji camp?
