Apparently Shahrukh Khan has not been approached for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project ‘Bajirao Mastani’, according to a source close to the actor.
There were reports that SRK would be doing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif featuring in it.
“He (Shahrukh) is not approached for this film. We don’t know where these reports are coming from. He is busy shooting for ‘Happy New Year’. The other projects that he would work on are Yash Raj Films’ ‘Fan’ a and Rahul Dholakia’s film,” a source close to the actor said.
According to what reports say, while Bhansali was shooting for ‘Ram Leela’ SRK dropped by and expressed his interest in playing Bajirao.
“It is all not true. The script is not ready yet,” sources close to Bhansali said.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali had first planned the project with the ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ lead pair of Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai, but things didn’t work out well after their relationship ended on a very bitter note. Names of actors like SRK and Ajay Devgn have been cropping up.
