At the beginning of the year, Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha starring Ranbir Kapoor – Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani featuring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, were the two big releases for Christmas this year.
Then came rumours of Rohit Shetty and Shahrukh Khan planning a film together and releasing it during the lucrative Christmas weekend.
About a couple of weeks ago, the makers of Tamasha decided to postpone their film. Now, a reliable source has informed us that Sanjay Leela Bhansali too has decided to push Bajirao Mastani to April / May 2016, as the post-production of the film won’t be complete by Christmas. Major portions of Bhansali’s ambitious film are yet to be shot.
The stage is set for the big announcement by Rohit Shetty, which is expected to be made later this month. Shahrukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Kajol and Alia Bhatt (or Kriti Sanon) are likely to headline the massive star cast. The film goes on floors next month.
