Angelina Jolie to play ‘Draupadi’ in Jha’s next
Overwhelmed by the success of Raajneeti, which was a contemporary adaptation of The Mahabharata, Prakesh Jha is taking a step ahead by making a full-fledged film that will be centred on the character of Draupadi, the wife of the five pandavas.
He intends to make this film for the international audiences. And guess what??? He plans to rope in Hollywood star Angelina Jolie for this flick.
Jha says that he wanted to make a film on Draupadi for quite some time. He even tried roping in Madhuri Dixit for the role a few years back, but the project just fell through. Now, he’s reviving the film which he calls “the ultimate tribute to womanhood”.
“I’m going to make it as an international film with an international cast…” Jha was quoted as saying.
Now, the question is, will Jolie, or any other Hollywood star for that matter, be able to do justice to the complex character of Draupadi???...being a human...
