Rhea Chakraborty might be in talks to play the powerful character of Draupadi in a movie based on the Indian epic Mahabharat. The actress who is still awaiting the release of her movie Chehre alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi seems to have got an interesting offer in the form of this project. For the unversed, Draupadi was the wife of the Pandavas and is the main female protagonist of Mahabharat.
A source close to the development revealed to The Times Of India about the same. The source said, "This would be a massive project with a unique and different take on Mahabharata and the character of Draupadi. The world that it will be set in will be modern and contemporary, something that hasn't been done before. The role of Draupadi has been offered to Rhea Chakraborty and she is considering it currently. The discussion is very initial though."
If the actress gives a green signal for the same, it will be her comeback in a breakthrough role since her last 2018 movie Jalebi. Rhea was seen in the movie alongside debutante Varun Mitra. The film was a Hindi remake of the Bengali movie Prakhtan.
