If reports are to be believed, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who recently married her long-time boyfriend Ranveer Singh, has said no to Aamir Khan. The superstar had approached the diva to play the character of Draupadi in his ambitious project Mahabharat. However, she turned down the offer for reasons best known to her.
Mahabharat is a project which is very close to Khan. Earlier there were reports suggesting that Mr. Perfectionist has shelved the project due to the heavy cost involved. However, now some sources have confirmed that Aamir is indeed making a digital series on Indian epic.
But looks like it is not going to be an easy project for the superstar! There are going to be many prominent characters in the series, so it will be interesting to see whether or not Aamir manages to cast the actors of his choice in it.
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone will next start shooting for an untitled biopic based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The film will be directed by Meghna Gulzar. Apart from playing the lead role in the movie, Padukone is also co-producing it.
The film will mount the shooting floors in March next year.
