Deepika Padukone will soon be seen playing the strong character of Draupadi differently in her upcoming film. Filmmaker Madhu Mantena and Deepika were jointly producing this film. It was being said that this film is based on a noble, Palace of Illusion, in which the story of Mahabharata will be presented to the public from Draupadi’s point of view. But now it is heard that Deepika Padukone’s epic film has been postponed for some time now.

Deepika Padukone’s Mahabharata on hold

A source close to the film told us, “People were excited to see the story of Mahabharata on the big screen. But it has been 2 years since the film was announced but a director has not been finalized for this film yet. Although the makers approached many veteran directors but things did not materialise. Vishal Bhardwaj was also one of the many directors in the race to direct Draupadi, but things did not materialise. And now it is heard that the makers have put the film on hold for the time being. And when the right time comes, we will make it.”

At the same time, Deepika has also removed her focus from Mahabharata. And now she is concentrating on Shakun Batra’s film and The Intern besides Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan, Fighter with Hrithik Roshan and Nag Ashwin with Prabhas. In such a situation, his attention has shifted from the character of Draupadi and there has not been much progress in this film. A source told us about this, “He will definitely make Mahabharat but at the right time and with a good director. A certain kind of command is required to show the epic on the big screen which is a huge responsibility.”
