The project which saw a lot of speculation ever since the inception of the script saw many names quoted for the lead cast. Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn were some of the contenders to play the role of Bajirao while actresses like Katrina Kaif and Priynka Chopra were considered for Mastani. However, despite the odds, Deepika has finally given the dates to Bhasali to play the female lead once again opposite Ranveer Singh.
Deepika, who is currently busy with Shuddhi, will wind up the project shortly. Ranveer Singh, on the other hand is fast winding up his next project, Kill Dill, a title loosely inspired from Hollywoood’s gore flick, Kill Bill. Deepika Padukone will also be seen in Farah Khan’s next celebrated big ticket Happy New Year that stars SRK, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah in a glittering cast. The promotions are heavily on for the film that is to release this year.
It would be interesting to see the rumoured couple play that electrifying on screen pair once again, all thanks to Bhansali outrageously exploiting the individual glamour levels of both the stars to fit in the story that is long anticipated.
