Sanjay Leela Bhansali has waited for almost twelve years to make
his magnum opus Bajirao Mastani and his dream
finally came true today (18 December). Recently, a special
screening of the movie was arranged by the cast of the film and
Singh and Deepika Padukone played the perfect
host to celebrities like Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Mira
Rajput, Shilpa Shetty, Sonam Kapoor, Sridevi and many others.
Bajirao Mastani narrates the story of the Maratha warrior Peshwa, Bajirao I of the Maratha Empire and his second wife Mastani. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone portray the role of Bajirao and Mastani, and Priyanka Chopra plays Bajirao's first wife Kashibai in the movie.
Talking about his role in Bajirao Mastani, Ranveer
Singh told India Today, ''I had 21 days to prepare, so I locked
myself up in a hotel room, got into semi-isolation to kind of
create this character. The mornings were about the physical
transformation, the afternoons were the accent, and it was in the
evening till late night that I would just sit with myself and the
script and the research material and think.''
Ranveer Singh further added, ''And create a new way of walking,
talking, sitting, standing, getting into the mindset of the guy.
Just think what is it like to live in the 1700s, what do you do...
how do you sleep, how do you wake up, what do you do after you wake
up, how do you brush - do you brush? - there are so many things to
take into consideration and completely transform. You could say my
evenings to nights all those 21 days were all about marinating. I
was marinating myself in that character.''
