Deepika Padukone To Rope In For New Film Adapted From Novel "Palace of Illusions"

Aesha |Nov 11, 2019

Deepika Padukone will be portraying the main character in the epic saga adapted from the novel "Palace of Illusions".

It was recently announced that actress Deepika Padukone will take on the lead role in a grand period drama which will retell The Mahabharata from the version of Draupadi. As expected, Deepika will portray the Draupadi character in the upcoming historical film. The movie is being endowed by Reliance Entertainment.

Deepika Padukone had said in her official announcement, "We all know the Mahabharat for its mythological tales and socio-cultural influence. We derive many of life’s lessons from the epic. But the narrative we are most familiar with is that of the epic’s leading men. This new perspective will be not only interesting but also significant."

It is deemed by many that this film will be built based on the original screenplay. However, rumor has it that the filmmakers have purchased the novel’s rights and the novel will be adapted into a movie in the celluloid.

An insider, with the provision that their identity kept anonymous, spilled the beans,

"The idea has been in the works for over a year now. Madhu Mantena was always clear that he will be making the two epics Ramayana and The Mahabharata and that he will work with Deepika, who's also a very close friend. The whole film is based on Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's book The Pallace Of Illusions. It says the same cultural story, just from a very different viewpoint. The team has finally got the rights to the book and the pre-production work has already begun. Another big A-list actor is also in talks to play one of the key roles, but nothing has been locked as yet."
