Shah Rukh Khan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has found his Bajirao for his dream project, that had been on hold since a long time now and it is none other than Shahrukh Khan. Bhansali had thought about making a movie on the famous love story of Peshwa Bajirao and his paramour Mastani. Earlier he had visualized Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai in the role but as their love story ended on a bitter note, he had to forsake the idea. Now he is all set to roll the cameras with his Devdas (SRK) in the main lead.

According to sources, the relationship between SRK and Bhansali had gone bitter when a war of word took place as ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Saawariya’ clashed at the Box Office. Later they had once again bonded during the poster release of Bela Sehgal’s film ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’. One day SRK dropped by on the sets of Ram-Leela and showed interest in playing Bajirao and the rest is history.

The movie will start rolling by June or July as, “Bhansali wants the first schedule in the rains. The pre-production work on the film has kicked off.” SRK’s company Red Chillies Entertainment might co-produce the film with Bhansali. The Heroine has yet to be decided but there are rumours that Deepika Padukone might be cast as Mastani and Katrina Kaif as Bajirao’s wife Kashibai.
