Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani gets stalled again, this time the reason being, the lead pair who were confirmed Ranveer and Deepika roped in to do Shuddhi and their dates not avaliable.
Now, Mr.Bhansali might rethink to do his film again. While, Sanjay Leela Bhansali confirmed Deepika and Ranveer earlier, his project was supposed to start only in early March 2015, but Shuddhi is expected to start production from this year end.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali chooses his lead according to his story always, now this lead pair seen in another movie prior to his film will for sure make him rethink the cast. Bhansali reconsidered the lead in one of his earlier movies when the posibility of casting Aishwarya Rai Bachchan alongside Salman Khan became impossible.
According to sources, Bhansali is not so happy with reports of the Shuddhi team using his lead pair, Deepika and Ranveer. Priyanka Chopra is also been considered for doing the role of a prominent historical character in Bajirao Mastani. There are also rumours going around that Kareena Kapoor is keen to do a role.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali when he first announced the news of making Bajjirao Mastani he wanted to cast Aishwarya Rai, Salman Khan and Rani Mukherjee but it never really took off. "Now there is buzz that Ajay Devgn may play Bajirao in the film and Kareena has apparently expressed her desire to play Mastani. Priyanka Chopra will play Bajirao's wife, Kashibai," says the source. But Mr. Bhansali's office says that noone has been finalised yet.
With all these confusions, will this project ever take off?
