Breaking news:


Is Salman out from Bajirao?


Sanjay Leela Bansali  had started talking about this dream project soon after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999) and had wanted his original favourite Salman Khan as the lead actor and Kareena Kapoor to play Mastani.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been dreaming of making his biopic on the Peshwa, Bajirao and his wife Mastani for nearly a decade. In these 10 years, there has been extensive reporting on this movie, and so has SLB's wish-list for his lead players to play Bajirao.A spokseman said "Salman and Kareena even did the photo-shoot in the attire at a five-star hotel in Juhu.'' However, the film didn't take off and when Sanjay wanted to revive it, Salman who was dating Katrina Kaif had insisted he consider Kat instead of Bebo.

In the years gone by, this film has been one of the most speculated movies and the casting for the lead roles seems to have done a complete round of the top brass in Bollywood.Post Black, there was talk of SLB wanting the Bachchans for this dream historical project and later there was speculation that he may even consider Salman's bete noire and his own Devdas, ShahRukh Khan for the role of Bajirao. The latest card that has been opened in this drama reveals that SLB is reportedly in talks with Ajay Devgn, the other leading man of HDDCS for the role of the famous Peshwa. And of course we also hear that Kat, who now speaks Hindi adeptly, may be Mastani.

SLB who is eating, sleeping, breathing Ram Leela (the Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone film) that will roll this August, is obviously in no mood to throw light on his next project. But an insider tells us that Bajirao-Mastani is very much on the anvil, and yes Ajay and Sanjay have been "in talks''.
