Mahabharat first look: Vidya Balan’s animated Draupadi look seems mediocre!

We stumbled on the exclusive animated picture of the Kahaani actor who has done voiceover for the powerful character of Draupadi in animation film Mahabharat

Filmmakers have always been fascinated by mythology, especially Mahabharat and are always eager to translate the epic on to the big screen. Similarly, the producer of the Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani, Jayantilal Gada, MD, Pen India Pvt Ltd has also tried his hand at attempting the big budget animated version of the holy scripture.

Reportedly, Gada’s Mahabharat will release alongside Hrithik Roshan’s much anticipated superhero flick Krrish 3 and will have 15 Bollywood stars lending their voices to various iconic characters, from Amitabh Bachchan who plays Bheeshma to Vidya Balan as Draupadi, Sunny Deol as Bheem, Jackie Shroff as Duryodhan, Anil Kapoor as Karna.

The makers feel Vidya’s voice is appropriate for Draupadi. “We couldn’t have asked for a better voice for the character of Draupadi than that of Vidya Balan,” Gada said.

Once The Dirty Picture star agreed to play Draupadi, her animated version was enhanced and worked upon in order to make it look closest to Vidya Balan. Wethinks the animated Vidya isn’t looking her glamorous best sans her trademark chubby cheeks and bony hands!

After Draupadi, we can’t wait to watch pictures of other characters from our most cherished epic story!
