While the Ramayan is being turned into a three-part feature film by Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal and Chhichhore fame, the Mahabharat will see its own treatment with the powerful character of Draupadi being portrayed by Deepika Padukone.
Both projects are being produced by Madhu Mantena.
Now, we hear that Hrithik Roshan is likely to play Lord Krishna.
A source informs Subhash K Jha, "Since the producer Madhu Mantena is a very close friend of Hrithik, he is in talks with the star for the role. Playing Lord Krishna is a welcome challenge for any actor. The logistics are being worked out for Hrithik’s participation.”
Hrithik and Deepika have never been cast together before, so this one will be worth looking out for.
