Post the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, actress Rhea Chakraborty's career graph took a massive hit with the actress struggling to get new projects in her kitty. Now as per a E-Times report, the Sonali Cable star, is expected to play the role of mythological character Draupadi in the modern day adaptation of Mahabharat. A source close to the development informed the daily: “This would be a massive project with a unique and different take on Mahabharata and the character of Draupadi. The world that it will be set in will be modern and contemporary, something that hasn’t been done before. The role of Draupadi has been offered to Rhea Chakraborty and she is considering it currently. The discussion is very initial though.”
Rhea found herself mired in a drug controversy after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Based on some of the WhatsApp chats retrieved from Chakraborty’s mobile phone, the NCB had also registered a case and arrested several persons, including Rajput’s house help, his girlfriend Chakraborty and her brother Showik among others. Recently, the NCB has also arrested the actor’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani, taking the total arrests in the case to 35. Rhea in her statement claimed Rajput’s sister and brother-in-law knew about his marijuana addiction. She alleged the duo, in fact, also consumed the narcotic with them. In her statement, Chakraborty said actor Sara Ali Khan had offered her rolled “doobies”, believed to be marijuana sticks, in the past.
