The first teaser of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial Bajirao Mastani, is out and it lures the audience with its grandeur, awe-inspiring battle scenes, swordfights and the magic of actors Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
"It's that moment when time stands still. Presenting the spellbinding #BajiraoMastaniTeaser," read a post from the Eros Now Twitter handle, from where the teaser was shared.
Slated to hit the theatres on December 18, 2015, the movie features Ranveer as 18th century Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I, while his love interest Mastani's role is essayed by Deepika. National Award winner Priyanka has portrayed Kashibai, the first wife of Peshwa Bajirao.
The two-and-a-half minute teaser, which is backed by music but no dialogues, brims with larger-than-life battle scenes, starring Ranveer and Deepika as warriors. The movie is said to be a historical love story, but the trailer hardly presents a hint of romance, except at the very end with Ranveer pronouncing: "Bajirao ne Mastani se mohabbat ki hai ayashi nahi".
Not just the viewers, even the celebrities have gone gaga over the teaser of the movie and have taken to Twitter to give their review of the teaser...
