The epic tale of Mahabharata will be told from Draupadi’s point of view in a Bollywood magnum opus, and who better than Deepika Padukone to play the role? Also producing the film, this is her dream project. Talking about why DP decided to back the project, co-producer Madhu Mantena said, “Deepika is not making this film because she is an actor, she is making it because she and I strongly feel that it’s a great story that is to be told from Draupadi’s point of view. We are working hard to put everything together. These projects do take time, and we all know that. These are not small responsibilities, we are looking to create a world which has not been seen before.”
Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan together for the first time for a film. If that’s not epic, we don’t know what is.

With this film, we aim to put Indian films on the map for action-loving global theatrical audiences who crave spectacle and the big screen experience.” Fighter is scheduled for a Republic Day 2023 release.
