Ranveer will be seen as Bajirao opposite his lovelady Deepika as Mastani. The duo are set to romance once again on-screen.
Priyanka Chopra learns Peshwai MarathiPriyanka Chopra is undergoing language training in a very specific dialect of Marathi spoken during the time of the ascension of the Peshwas, for her role in the upcoming Bajirao Mastani. Now, PC has played Marathi mulgi before (Kaminey and Agneepath come to mind), but this is going to be a whole different ballgame, swear sources. The actress has been training with a linguistic expert daily on the sets to work on her 17th century-specific lines in the film.

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.

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."
