Ranveer Singh to go bald for ‘Bajirao Mastani’?
Seems like a season of our heroes going bald for a role in Bollywood. Trend was started by Shahid Kapoor, who has shed his mane for a role in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’, and now it seems that Bollywood’s flirt is following Sasha’s path, for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’ Bajirao Mastani. It was being speculated since a long time now who will depict the role of Bajirao in Sanjay’s ambitious project, with names such as Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh doing the rounds.
As per sources, it seems that Ranveer who has become Bhansali’s blue eyed boy with ‘RamLeela’, is the front-runner for the role. “Sanjay has been in talks with Ranveer and unless there’s some last-minute hitch, it’s almost certain that he’ll be playing Bajirao.” It has also come to be known that director Sanjay wants his hero to shave off his hair, with only a braid left that usually pandits are seen sporting, for the interesting role.
Sources further added that Ranveer is quite excited about the project, he loved the script and is in advanced talks for the role.
