Deepika Padukone chooses ‘Bajirao Mastani’ over ‘Shuddhi’
In a Game of one upmanship between Bollywood filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar, both of whom had announced the release date of their movies ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Shuddhi’ by Chritmas , KJo has been left behind by Bhansali. Where Karan has to still finalize the cast after Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor walked out, Sanjay has already got his Bajirao and Mastani. The hit jodi and the alleged real life couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will play Bajirao and Mastani respectively.
As per sources, Ranveer Singh had picked Bhansali’s Magnum Opus over KJo’s flick. Now his real life love interest Deepika Padukone has followed him to Camp Bhansali. The actress, has signed up to essay Mastani’s part. “Deepika is looking forward to shooting with Bhansali and Ranveer again. Her last stint with the duo (Ram-Leela) got her plenty of accolades that she will not forget in a long time. Deepika has given a large chunk of her dates to Bhansali as the filmmaker likes to shoot over long schedules. While the Shuddhi cast has not yet been announced, Bhansali finally has both his Bajirao and Mastani.”
Deepika had earlier been confirmed for Shuddhi but we guess that her love for the time she would get to spend with Ranveer may be one of the reasons for choosing Sanjay over KJo.
