Ekta Kapoor's Draupadi Had A Tattoo, Pandavas Had Six Pack Abs: Mukesh Khanna Takes On TV Czarina’s Mahabharat
Actor Mukesh Khanna also known as Bhishma Pitamah for many is quite vocal with his thoughts. You may recall the actor made headlines when he got into a war of words with Ekta Kapoor over her production of the mythological drama, Mahabharat. And now a video that has surfaced on the internet sees Mukesh discussing it all, again.

In the video, Mukesh is seen describing the war between the two over her changing the storyline of Mahabharat and making it modernised. Not only that but veteran actor also objected to other producers’ versions of historical and mythological dramas, like Maharanaprata and Jhansi Ki Rani etc, just for the sake of TRPs. Watch the viral video below:



In an interview to TOI back in 2014, Mukesh confessed, “I tried watching them but the way they keep twisting the plot, stuffing tales unheard of selling that in the name of creativity is something I find disgusting. They make a serial on Maharana Pratap and keep showing the exploits of young Maharana for years. Same goes for Rani Laxmibai. When Ekta made Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki, I found it so horrendous that I had decided to take her to court. The way she made a mockery of Mahabharata was absolutely incomprehensible. Can you do that with the sacred texts of religions other than Hinduism? I think not.”
