Ranveer Singh finally shaves off his headSanjay Leela Bhansali has finally started shooting his dream project 'Bajirao Mastani' after 10 years. Ranveer Singh, who plays Bajirao, has cut himself off from the outside world to completely focus on the role and not be distracted, to the extent that he is also staying away from his home. Ranveer is getting his head shaved for the role and we bring you exclusive pictures of him, while he was getting his hair cut.
Story/Plot"Bajirao Mastani" is based on the life of Peshwa Bajirao and his ladylove Mastani. The filmmaker has planned to make this dream for last 15 years and finally the project has been green-lighted by producers Eros International. Baji Rao was the prime minister to the fourth Maratha Chhatrapati (emperor) Shahu from 1720. He was credited with expanding the Maratha empire. Ranveer will be seen as Bajirao opposite his lovelady Deepika as Mastani. The duo are set to romance once again on-screen.
Actor/ActressRanveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have finalized as the lead actors for the movie. It was announced back in 2003 and has been in news since then. The project being close to Bhansali's heart, he had conceptualised the project with his 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' star cast Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. But as their relationship went kaput, Bhansali was since then waiting to get a proper star cast in place. Ranveer is playing the historical role of Bajirao, Deepika is playing Bajirao's second wife and Priyanka will play Bajirao's first wife.
First LookIn the first look Priyanka is seen wearing a white colour saree with intricate golden border. The picture, in which she is seen flaunting her right hand adorned with traditional Maharashtrian glass, gold and pearl bangles, and stone studded rings, is from the first day of the shoot.
MusicSanjay Leela Bhansali will not only direct Bajirao Mastani but he will also compose music for his magnum opus which will hit the theaters in December 2015. Bhansali is a one of the best filmmakers in Bollywood today but he is equally good as a music composer. His last film Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela was a musical treat and that's one reason why it worked wonders at the box office. Sources said- "While his team in on a recce, Sanjay is busy with his music sittings. In keeping with the grandeur of the story, he wants the music to be regal too. He has been having multiple sittings with his team to churn out grand music for the film."
Deepika and Priyanka's dance-offDeepika Padukone may not trade punches with Priyanka Chopra, but the two will definitely have a dance-off in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next. In Bajirao Mastani Kashibai and Mastani, Peshwa Bajirao's two lovers, will share screen space. SLB will give them a lot of confrontation sequences and a dramatic dance-off (like Bhansali did with Dola Re Dola in Devdas).
Release DateThe film Bajirao Mastani is expected to go on floors by next year.
