Please Post ALL UPDATES HERE!!Edited by lwrimaforever - 5 months ago
"I’m absolutely thrilled and honoured to be essaying the role of Draupadi. I truly believe that it is the role of a lifetime." - Deepika Padukone
"While Mahabharat is popularly known for its mythological tales & cultural influences, many life lessons are also derived from it, but most often from its men. Telling it with this fresh and new perspective will not only be interesting, but also very significant.” - Deepika
"While we have all consumed the Mahabharat all our lives, the uniqueness of our film is seeing the same story from the point of view of Draupadi, who is one of the most significant heroines in our country’s cultural history." - Madhu Mantena
"And Deepika is not just the biggest Indian actress today, but someone who can take this narrative across borders. If it weren’t with her, we would not be making this film on such an ambitious scale" - Madhu Mantena
Deepika Padukone and co-producer Madhu Mantena are in talks with A-list filmmakers to direct the film on Draupadi and are eyeing a Diwali 2021 release! It is planned to be made in 2 or more parts🙌🏽Edited by lwrimaforever - 5 months ago
WHAT THE EFF. First of all,forget Deepika for a second WE ARE GETTING THE PALACE OF ILLUSIONS AS A MOVIE. One of the greatest Indian books ever written! Chitra Banerjee Devakaruni YOU DESERVE THIS! SO MUCH!
Second,ofcourse its Deepika. Mantena is right on!
Anyway,THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE FOR A 'THE PALACE OF ILLUSIONS' STAN! Y'all should read that book if you havent ! Masterpiece. Honestly, just the fact that this book is getting turned into a movie. It makes you rethink Mahabharat in ways you did not think possible. So important and still so relevant. THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY!Edited by AllThatCritique - 5 months ago
