All those elaborate costumes and jewelry you see on-screen look very beautiful but it is very difficult to carry these things for a long time.But yes, it takes 2.5 to 3 hours daily for me to get ready. (laughs) To be honest, I really don’t have time check those crazy fan mails as my work takes up most of my time.Pooja Sharma, who we better know as Mahabharat’s Draupadi, is a sweet, professional, chirpy and pretty girl.She never thought of playing Draupadi until she realized that she is the one among millions, who will be making history on the Indian Television once again, after actor Roopa Ganguly in the 1980s.We managed to get her talking while she was on a short break from shoot.And, the girl did not cease to speak to us until she got a call from her director.How would you choose your husband in your Swayamvar as Pooja Sharma not as Draupadi?Excerpts from the conversation: How did you get through the auditions of Draupadi’s role?
During the audition, I was given two scenes to prepare. But having said that, there was a lot about her I have learnt on the sets.
First, I had to give an introduction to myself as Draupadi and talk about myself as a fire born princess and her qualities. Honestly, there is a lot of sweat and blood I am putting into my work.
