Ajay Devgn and Deepika Padukone finalized for Bajirao Mastani
After Ram Leela, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has all come up with his new dream project Bajirao Mastani. Sanjay was trying to make this film from years but it never went on the floor because the director was never fully satisfied with the lead pairing. This time the lead pair has been finalised for the role of Bajirao and Mastani in Ajay Devgn and Deepika Padukone. Ajay and Deepika will be seen in Sanjay’s next Bajirao Mastani.
Bajirao Mastani is based on the epic love story of the renowned Maratha general and his half-Muslim second wife Mastani. The film is very close to Bhansali’s heart and is a story he has been waiting to tell.
Originally Bhansali had planned the film with Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. He has tried to revive the project a few times but it didn’t work out. Now he believes is the right time to start the film. Filmmaker Sanjay is travelling to scout locales for his Dream project and now feels that the Ajay-Deepika are most suited for his film as they not only make a fresh pair but also Ajay fits the part of the Maratha general perfectly. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has worked with both Ajay and Deepika in the past. He is convinced they are the best choice for his next.
