Sanjay Leela Bhansali hasn’t yet given up the idea of making Bajirao Mastani - a historic drama about Maratha warrior Bajirao and his second wife Mastani. The director is said to be reviving this once-shelved movie with Deepika Padukone in the lead role.
While insiders claim that Deepika Padukone is almost confirmed for the film, the question is who will play Bajirao in the movie. Trade talk suggests that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is planning to start Bajirao Mastani in January 2015.
A few days back, there was a strong buzz that Ajay Devgn might bag the role of Bajirao. It was even being said that Sanjay thinks the pair of Ajay Devgn-Deepika Padukone is most suited for his film as they not only make a fresh pair but because Ajay fits the part of the Maratha general perfectly.
Bajirao Mastani has always been Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project. Originally, he had planned the film with Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. But post their break-up the movie was put on the backburner. The director has tried to revive the project a few more times but nothing materialized.
Let’s see whether Sanjay is able to make his magnum opus this time or not! Meanwhile, whom would you like to see play Bajirao? Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh or Shahrukh Khan!
The film narrates the love story of Peshwa Bajirao and his second wife Mastani, who was a Muslim. Their relationship was also the reason of much rift in the orthodox Marathi society of that time and led to a major crisis within the royal Peshwa family. Mastani was a brave lady; she was a skilled horse-rider and used to go to the battlefield with her valiant husband.
