The ace director of Bollywood, Sanjay Leela Bhansali waited for almost 12 years to mount his dream project 'Bajirao Mastani' on the silver screen. His 'larger than life' movie, BM, took all the recent awards event by storm.
According to the latest reports, SLB is planning his next film, which will be based on the life of the legend 'Rani Padmavati' of Chittor, which traces back to the 13th century AD. Rumours are also rife that the director is in mood to cast Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for this film.
And we have brought 25 royal pictures of Aishwarya Rai, which would surely make Mr Bhansali cast her in Rani Padmavati.
Check Out All The Pictures Here:
Aishwarya & Sanjay Leela Bhansali have created their magic on-screen in films including Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Gujaarish.
Many of you don't know that even in Bajirao Mastani, SLB was keen to cast Aishwarya Rai, but things didn't work in favour at that time and Deepika grabbed the role. (And we are not complaining here as she did complete justice to her character.)
But now, we are really eager to see Aishwarya Rai as SLB's next heroine! Don't you want to see Aishwarya Rai playing the iconic role of Padmavati?
Mr Bhansali Talks About Padmavati:
Earlier once while talking to an entertainment daily, the Saawariya director had talked about this project and had said something like this:
"Padmavati is a project very close to my heart.I have been in love with this character and her story from long before the time when I directed the staged version of the opera in Paris. The movie adaptation has great potential for songs, dances, music and drama. Most important of all Padmavati is such a modern character, a true-blue feminist in spite of having existed five centuries ago."
