Prakruti Mishra, who hogged the headlines for a week back, is a busy bee now. Forgetting the past, she has started her work life afresh. At present, she has three Bollywood projects including a Nana Patekar-starrer movie in her kitty. She is all set to entertain audience in Odia movie Draupadi.
Sharing poster of the movie in her Instagram account, she wrote “Used, abused and misused, every woman has been assaulted, harassed or humiliated, through the ages. It is time to raise our voice together and say every time it is not a woman’s fault! The story of every girl with Prakruti Mishra in and as ‘DRAUPADI’.”
Ananya Pattanaik has donned the director’s hat while it is being produced by Sashmita Tiadi and Akashdeep Singh.
Talking about the movie, Prakruti said, “This movie is a modern day rendition of an age-old story. The story revolves around a middle class girl who gets used, abused and misused by men around her. Some she knows and she loves and some just want to break her down. They try to assault, harass and humiliate women but women will always keep rising from the ashes like Phoenixes. This is a story to make a movie for women by women. We hope to make at least one woman feel empowered and give her the courage to raise her voice against any injustice.”
“This movie has Prakruti Mishra in the titular character and I think none is better suited for this. She is a tremendous performer and one who has always stood up for women and their empowerment. She is a fighter and this movie is her fight,” said the director praising Prakruti’s talent.
Earlier giving more information about Prakruti’s Bollywood projects, her father Manmath had stated that “Shooting of her film with Nana Patekar has been completed. Now post-production work of the movie is in full swing. The Nana-starrer movie will be released in October. It will have theatre release in all over India. Besides, she has signed two projects with Golden Movies. She has shot some portion of the movies. Shooting was postponed due to corona outbreak. Recently she got a call from them to join the team.”
