‘Mahabharat’ , a project by Swastik Pictures to be aired on Star Plus is due for its launch. Star Plus and Swastik Pictures are quiet optimistic for the mega show. Reports say, Shaheer Sheikh and Deblina Chatterjee have been approached to play key roles of Arjun and Draupadi. Shaheer Sheikh came into limelight through ‘Navya’ where he played the character Anand and is already in contract with Swastik Pictures. Deblina Chatterjee from the recently wrapped up ‘Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein’ also played lead role in her serial. Though Shaheer has denied reports of being offered a role for the mythological epic he has been invited to some very interested projects but not for ‘Mahabharat’. With no confirmation yet, it not surprising that parties are tight lipped until everything is finalized. One is to wait and watch if Shaheer features in Mahabharat or not as there were talks of him starring in the Sony TV Show Love Marriage vs Arranged Marriage that is soon to go on air.
