Aditya Pancholi roped in to play a baddie in Bajirao Mastani

Looks like the actor has earned quite a reputation for himself on and offscreen

Sooraj Pancholi’s daddy has been cast to play the bad guy in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. As far as we recall, Aditya Pancholi hardly ever plays the good guy on screen, wonder whether his real life image adds to his desire for being slotted as the ultimate baddie on silver screen.

Pancholi was called in by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a proper look test involving wigs, make-up, costumes and all that jazz. But has Bhasali finalised Aditya as the villain for his film, it is too early to tell for sure. Last seen in Dishkiyaoon, Aditya Pancholi hasn’t been around much. His last memorable performance was as a menacing druglord in Dum Maaro Dum. Apart from Aditya Pancholi we know that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have been signed for the film. Hopefully their real-life romance will reflect onscreen and work wonders for the jodi yet again after the success of Ram-Leela.

Bajirao Mastani will go on floors this November
