Did you know…Priyanka Chopra’s role of Kashibai in Bajirao Mastani was earlier offered to Rani Mukerji!

The Mardaani actress refused the role as she didn’t want to play a second lead

While it isn’t a lesser known fact that Priyanka Chopra has been working hard to prepare for her role of Kashibai in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, not many know that the coveted role was earlier offered to Rani Mukerji.

SLB’s Bajirao Mastani was planned eight yeas back when actresses Kareena Kapoor Khan and Rani Mukerji were shortlisted to play the roles of Mastani and Kashibai respectively, however the film was never made. Moreover, Aditya Chopra’s wifey had refused the film as she didn’t want to play a second lead.

However, when the film was again being made Kashibai was then offered to the Exotic babe. Sources confirm that it was re-written to match PC’s stature as an actor and a star. As reported in an entertainment portal a source close to the project said,”Kashibai’s role according to SLB’s script was never a walk-over, not even 8 years ago when Kareena Kapoor was to play Mastani and Rani Mukerji was to play Kashibai. Now with Deepika (Padukone) and Priyanka playing the two parts, SLB has modified the characters accordingly.”

While Rani refused to play the second lead, we suggest she take some cue from the Gunday actress considering the younger lot have now begun to prioritise quality roles over length. Way to go Ms Chopra!
