Roopa Ganguly, who played Draupadi in the blockbuster television series Mahabharata in the late 1980s is the new face of BJP in Bengal, and serves as a strong rival to the Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee. She showed that she is no pushover when earlier this year, she stood her ground against TMC’s workers physical and verbal abuse during a campaign. Roopa who never thought politics, comes from a well do family of doctors and surgeons in the family, and her interests are shooting, horse back riding and driving.
