The Vedic Entertainment Group is proud to announce that casting is complete (The role of Lord Krsna soon to be cast) in the upcoming High-Definition film, "The Women of Mahabharata." Although the cast members are not Hare Krishna devotees, yet, we're also excited about the fact that Janaki Devi dasi (who is a devotee) will play the role of Draupadi and we're all excited about working together.

Originally a stage play, after many re-writes, shooting will begin late May/June in and around the Los Angeles area and be distributed worldwide.
