We will again see this happening Pair of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in Bajirao Mastani that to be directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ranveer Singh is going to play Bajirao, whereas Deepika is set to play Mastani in the film.
Earlier there was strong rumours that Katrina Kaif has more or less given her nod for the film, but in last minute Deepika snatched the role from her claws literally.
Sanjay has approached Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn for playing the lead in the film. However all three of them has rejected it, and finally Ranveer Singh said yes to the project.
For female lead Sanjay was keen on casting Deepika, but she said yes to Shuddhi and was having dates problem. Hearing this Sanjay went to Katrina Kaif for having her in the project and just both were in process of finalising everything, when Deepika revert back Sanjay telling that she will do Bajirao Mastani. Whether she is still in Shuddhi or not it is to be known. If she is still in Shuddhi then it will be a big hardship for her to accomodate dates as already her date book is jam packed. Earlier Mastani role was offered to Kareena Kapoor, but she also rejected it.
Ranveer and Deepika has recently worked in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela which was a Monster HIT at the box office. Hope same magic is expected again from Bajirao Mastani.
