Richa Chadha keen to play Draupadi on screen

Actress Richa Chadha wants to explore the mythological space on the big screen, and yearns to portray the role of Draupadi from the epic Mahabharata.

“I would love to play the role of Draupadi from Mahabharata since I feel her character was most interesting for me. I have read the Mahabharata as a kid and found it very interesting … The way it was structured,” Richa said in a statement.

The actress shared her desire to step into the mythological genre after launching actor Vir Das’s sister Trisha’s debut novel titled “Ms Draupadi Kuru: After the Pandavas”.

The book is being published in India by Harper Collins.

Talking about the book, Richa said: “I am happy to have launched Trisha’s book. It’s genuinely a fun humorous take on the modern day adaptation of the classic mythology.”

The event was hosted by Vir along with special guests like Manasi Scott, Anurag Shrivastav, Suchitra Pillai, Shruti Seth and Ashwin Mushran.
