Actors fit for Mahabharat’s Hollywood Adaptation: Superhero films are falling and reaching a point of saturation.
First in our list is the righteous, noble King and elder brother of the Pandavas ‘Yudhishthira’.
Bhima is the strongest of the 5 Pandava brothers. His character can be directly associated with brute strength. It is said that Bhima had the power equivalent of 1000 elephants.
Now comes the third Pandava ‘Arjuna’, the main protagonist of our story. The ultimate warrior and supremely talented archer, arguably the best in the business.
Nakula is not much talked about character of Mahabharata amongst the masses. But this Pandava had a very important role in the War.
Shadeva, the twin brother of Nakula, is also miles away from the mainstream spotlight but this doesn’t take away anything from the warrior’s bravery and heroism in the war.
Karna was one of the biggest warriors of Mahabharata era. It is believed that he was the son of Sun. Because of this he had powerful divine armour, immune from any attacks.
Now comes the supervillian, the evil of our story ‘Duryodhana’. He was the cousin of Arjuna. Duryodhana was an evil without any backstory or reason.
Now we have the super evil, the master mind ‘Shakuni’. He was the maternal uncle of Duryodhana. ‘Brains can beat brute strength’, this man proved this statement right.
The leading lady of the epic, Draupadi’s role can be a tough task for any actress. It needs a dedicated and super talented actress like Jennifer Lawrence.
Krishna’s part in Mahabharat is the most important and crucial aspect of it. Krishna is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He helped the right to win over evil.
Bhishma was the grandfather of both Pandavas and Kauravas. He was also the protector of the Kuru Kingdom. As he had taken the oath to protect the King and Kingdom forever.
