A long time ago Sanjay Leela Bhansali desired to cast Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai in his film Bajirao Mastani but with the couple falling apart, the venture too got delayed but now the movie is back in news.
Although names of 3 actors – Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh were being tossed around, heard that Ranveer is the frontrunner for Bajirao’s character and he is already in discussions along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. A source has been quoted saying that unless there is a few last minute hitch, it is nearly certain that Ranveer Singh will play the central figure role.
The source has more disclosed that whoever would be signed for the movie, as the male lead, will have to commit a year exclusively to the venture, for filming and campaigns. Reportedly, Ranveer is very happy about the movie and is presently working on his dates and will most probably commit 2015 to Bajirao Mastani.
