Did Deepika Padukone turn down Draupadi’s role in Aamir Khan’s Mahabharat?
Deepika Padukone is in a happy place right now after her marriage to long-time beau Ranveer Singh. It’s going to be a year of Deepika’s absence from the silverscreen. Last she was seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat with her now husband Ranveer. While the actor will feature in Simmba in the end of 2018, DP has remained absent from the celluloid during these months. For 2019, she has signed a film directed by Meghna Gulzar, in which she’s playing an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Interestingly, with this film, Deepika is foraying into production.
Recently, reports are doing rounds on the internet that Deepika Padukone was collaborating with Aamir Khan for Mahabharat, but has now stepped back and turned down the role of Draupadi offered to her. The reason behind this major step is not yet known.
Deepika Padukone tied the knot with boyfriend Ranveer Singh on November 14 and 15. It was a lavish affair that took place at Lake Como in Italy. The couple hosted a wedding reception for their industry friends on November 28 at Grand Hyatt in Mumbai. The grand event was attended by Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Janhvi Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and many more. Celebrities including Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan gave it a miss due to work commitments.
