Priyanka’s name crops up for Kashibai in Bajirao Mastani
Speculations don't seem to cease when it comes to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's dream project Bajirao Mastani. The epic historical, based on the life of Peshwa Bajirao and his ladylove, Mastani, which the filmmaker first spoke about 15 years ago, has seen several big names being tossed around for the lead roles.
Though initially planned with Salman Khan as Bajirao, names like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh and even Ajay Devgn later started doing the rounds. Similarly, there were rumours of Bhansali having 'advanced talks' with Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor Khan for Mastani's role.
The latest is that Priyanka Chopra has bagged the role of Kashibai, who was the Peshwa's first wife. Will there be any concrete news soon? Well, your guess is as good as ours.
