Ajay Devgn replaces Shahrukh Khan in Bajirao Mastani!

Buzz is that Ajay has been signed to play the lead role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project, Bajirao Mastani

After Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to revisit his dream project Bajirao Mastani, which has been on a hold for a very long time. The film is based on the love story of the renowned Maratha general and his half-Muslim second wife Mastani.

Originally Bhasnali had planned this film with his Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam pair, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai (now Bachchan), when the onscreen lovers were off-screen sweethearts too. But then Sallu and Ash’s love story went kaput, and with that Bhansali’s dream too set down with the sun.

After that he has tried to revive the project a few times but unfortunately it didn’t work out. But now he believes is the right time to start the film. Earlier it was rumoured that Shahrukh Khan will play the lead role in Bajirao Mastani. However, it looks like those were just rumours as Ajay Devgn has been signed on to play the lead, we hear. There is some more. Apparently, the Saawariya director is keen to cast his Ram-Leela heroine to play the role of Mastani. However, Sanjay has not commented on this one.

According to an insider, the filmmaker is traveling to various locales for his magnum opus and will take a call after he returns. As of now he feels that the Ajay-Deepika jodi is apt for his film as they not only make a fresh pair but also Ajay fits the part of the Maratha general perfectly. If you will remember, Ajay has worked with Bhansali earlier in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
