Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most anticipated film Bajirao Mastani was supposed to release on December 18. But after knowing that Shahrukh Khan's Dilwale is releasing on the same date, the director wants to postpone the release of his film.
Bajirao Mastani, which stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's dream project. Talking about the it a source told Bollywood Life,"Yes, the release of Bajirao Mastani is being pushed ahead.''
The source further added, ‘'The film is Bhansali's dream project and the director is aiming for a solo release in 2016. Dilwale will see Shahrukh Khan and Kajol share screen space after a gap of five years - their last release together was My Name is Khan (2010) - and there will obviously be hype around it.''
''Bhansali doesn't want to take chances with Bajirao Mastani and is therefore planning to push the release of the film ahead,'' the source told.
If you don't remember, in 2007 Sanjay Leela Bhansali released his Sawaariya with Shahrukh Khan's Om Shanti Om. Unfortunately, Saawariya flopped at the box-office. So, it seems that this time the director does not want to take any chances.
