The television has witnessed a new trend of bringing back old shows due to COVID 19. After Doordarshan’s decision of rerunning Ramayana and Mahabharat, other channels too are working upon the re-telecast of favourite old shows. However, mythological shows Ramayana and Mahabharat are amongst the most-watched shows on TV right now.

Ever since these shows have started airing on TV, interesting facts have been surfacing on the internet about the show. We now hear that, actress Rupa Ganguly, who essayed the role of Draupadi in B.R. Chopra’s Mahabharat was not the first choice of the makers. In fact, the makers were interested in casting Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla for the iconic role. Juhi Chawla was almost finalized for the show, however she later backed out as she signed Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak opposite Amir Khan, and eventually the makers casted in Roopa Ganguly.

Juhi Chawla had also mentioned in one of her interviews that many people asked her not to let go of the show Mahabharat. They also told her that Nasir Hussain’s last three films were not successful but she made a decision to still sign the film and decline the offer of Mahabharat.

Would Juhi Chawla be the right choice instead of Roopa Ganguly in the role of Draupadi? Let us know in the comments section below.
