While the confusion over the lead pair of Bajirao Mastani isn’t over yet, it’s heard that Priyanka Chopra is in the reckoning to play the second lead.
It seems Sanjay Leela Bhansali can’t get enough of his Mary Kom biopic actress. Also the fact that Pee Cee agreed to glam up Ram-Leela when Aishwarya Rai decided not to do the item track is not lost on him. So when the director was looking for a powerhouse actress to play the second lead in Bajirao Mastani, he thought of none else but Priyanka.
Sources claim that Priyanka Chopra has agreed to essay Kashibai’s character. It may not be the title role, but it is vital to the story. Confirming Priyanka’s presence in Bhansali’s dream project, a source tells a tabloid, “An important role if portrayed with an amazing performance will always have more weightage and appreciation than that of a lead role. So looking at PC’s acting prowess, one can go beyond just the length of her role.”
Earlier, the buzz was strong that Katrina Kaif may bag the role of Bajirao’s wife Kashibai.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all charged up to start his magnum opus that was planned almost 13 years ago but never took off for one reason for another. For the lead, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are rumoured to have been approached.
