No SRK or Deepika in Bajirao Mastani: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Sanjay Leela BhansaliLately, there were several reports of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali finalising Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone for his dream-film Bajirao Mastani.

Rubbishing all rumours, Bhansali said “I have not approached any one. Currently, I am only focusing on Ram Leela. I haven’t had the time to think of any other film. I will decide on my next only after the release of Ram Leela”

Based on the epic love story of Maratha general Peshwa Bajirao and his wife Mastani, Bhansali’s dream magnum-opus hit a roadblock when Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai split. The two ex-lovers were his original choice to play the epic characters.

A source close to the director says “Bajirao Mastani is very close to Sanjay Bhansali’s heart. He wanted to direct the film soon after the release of Devdas, but put the project on hold. Some day, when he gets the casting right, he will definitely make it”

SLB’s next Ram Leela features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.

Only Salman and Aishwarya is perfect for this movie! They were too good in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. I feel they should behave like professional. They should work together.

If Srk plays Bajirao then it should be biggest insult of Bajirao.
Very similar like Srk did with Ashoka.

Bajirao was only emperor who never lost a single war & he was known for is dashing personality.

Even imagin Srk in his role is big torture.

Only actor who perfect for this role is Salman.

Even Hrithik also a good option but the dressings of Peshwa’s & Mughal’s were very similar so Hrithik may look like Akbar of Jodha Akbar which he played earlier.

Srk- Deepika would have been a horrible choice as leads. Sanjay needs someone dynamic and full of charisma to play Bajirao. For me it has to be the dominating presence of the Nations Icon Salman Khan alongside the youthful exuberance of Snushka Sharma.

yes even though salman would look good as bajirao but hrithik is the better option as he has that look and personality and very fine acting skills are needed , shahrukh wont look good as bajirao

For me,,hrithik is the best choice. . .u can take the exmple of his charming face from jodha akbar. . .moreover he won all the awards for his outstanding performance.

Hrithik has a greed god look.

Now that is good, but that is a problem too. (this is not a “i hate hrithik post”)

When people (not fans, but general public) goes to watch a movie that depicts Bajirao, they expect the actor to have more Indian looks than a greek sculpted look.

Salman is purrfect, but he will not do it, as he and Sanjay are not on talking terms.

May be Akshay would do it, as Sanjay and Akshay have hit jackpot with Rowdy Rathore.

@JC, no offence to you but you should remember that period films require intense acting skills, do you think salman and akshay can do such roles , salman is not a fine actor, he is a superstar, akshay too doesn’t have that good acting skills , ajay devgn can be a good choice but his face doesn’t look like a king, thats the only problem , lets see if bhansali makes this film and if he makes then with whom
