Why The Change In Plans?
Madhu said these sort of things take a lot of time and they do not want to come out as irresponsible. Madhu and Deepika agreed to make Mahabharat from Draupadi’s point of view because they want people to understand who Draupadi was.
The producer also added that there is a lot of research being done in the background and they have already reached the process of final drafting of the scripts for screenplay.
Madhu Mantena went on to talk about why it takes them so much time and said that various nuances are being worked on. He also added that Deepika is not making this film because she is an actress sin the industry and its her job; she does it because they both have a strong sense that it is a good story to be told from Draupadi’s point of view.
He concluded that they are working hard to put everything together and that this type of project requires a lot of time. He also believes that the responsibilities which they are carrying to create a world that have not been seen before is huge and can’t be made so early.
