Who will play Mastani now?

kareena Who will play Mastani now?

While reports indicate that Sanjay Leela Bhansali would soon be going back to his songand grandeur genre with the epic romance Bajirao Mastani, the cast of the film has raised much speculation. Bhansali has been keen to revive this long-standing project but what has put him in a quandary is the choice of the heroine. Though he would love to rope in his muse Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, this seems an improbability considering that her ex-boyfriend Salman Khan would be playing Bajirao. Though the grapevine suggests that Kareena Kapoor is being considered to play Mastani, sources close to Bhansali refute that. They insist that he’s still in the scripting stage and the cast is something he hasn’t yet given a thought. Incidentally, the film will be based on the love story of Peshwa Bajirao and his wife Mastani, known for her beauty and talent. Watch this space for more.
