Draupadi in Mahabharat

Pooja Sharma is portraying the role of Draupadi, daughter of King Draupad in Mahabharat. In the story, Maharishi came and told Draupad (Sudesh Berry) that through the yagna performed, he will have a son, but the fact is that he will have to accept a daughter first. Since, the daughter who will be born to him will install 'dharma' in the world. This way, King Drupad started his yagna in Kampilynagar wherein he requested Gods to give him a powerful son and Dhrishtadhyumn was born.

Draupad was very happy to get a son would not want a girl now, but the Rishis warned him and asked him to accept her. Finally, Draupad asked for a girl from the Gods, and this is how Draupadi was born out of the flames. After Draupadi was born, she is shown directly into adulthood without going through the various transitions in life that start from being a kid.

Pooja Sharma aka Draupadi couldn't express what she felt during the 'vastra haran' act in that scene and suggests people to watch that particular episode to get the real picture.
