Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shahrukh Khan had teamed up for Devdas had a slight fall out of sorts when Shahrukh’s Om Shanti Om clashed with and dominated Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya.
Now, post the tremendous success of Ram Leela, Bhansali now wants to make a film which captures the romance between Peshwa Bajirao and his ladylove Mastani. Reportedly, this was a project that he wanted to do for almost 15 years now. He had initially thought of roping in the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam duo Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan but that will never happen.
Reports say Shahrukh Khan has been offered the role of Bajirao. Apparently, the Baadshah had dropped in on the sets of Ram Leela and while the two were talking about Bajirao-Mastani, he expressed interest in the role and agreed to do it.
Once the leading lady is finalized, the film will go on floors in July this year.
