It was reported recently that Shahrukh Khan will play the role of Peshwa Bajirao in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ambitious project which chronicled the romance between Bajirao and his lady-love Mastani.
Shahrukh and Sanjay had earlier teamed up for the movie Devdas and after that, the two had a minor fallout when the former’s movie Om Shanti Om clashed with and dominated the latter’s Saawariya. So we were happy to hear that the two would team up again. But sadly, all those are just rumors.
“Shahrukh was 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 and Rahul Dholakia’s film,” a source close to the Baadshah.
Originally Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai, who were the lead-pair in Bhansali’s hit film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam were supposed to play the roles but the two will never be seen together again. So who will be Sanjay’s Bajirao and Mastani?
