Contrary to reports, SRK hasn’t been offered Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project Bajirao Mastani is still on hold. Though rumours are rife that SLB has approached Shahrukh Khan for his long impending project, we hear that’s not the case at all. “He (Shah Rukh) is not approached for this film. We don’t know where these reports are coming from. He is busy shooting for Happy New Year. The other projects that he would work on are Yash Raj Films’ Fan and Rahul Dholakia’s film,” a source close to the King Khan said to a leading daily. Also, reports were doing the rounds that Gauri Khan’s hubby dearest had dropped by the sets of Ram-Leela just to express his desire to play Bajirao. However, that’s just gossip as well.
Sources close to SLB cleared the air and told a leading daily, ”It is all not true. The script is not ready yet.” Now that’s sad as we were hoping Khan would join hands with his Devdas director once again. After all, they did create magic on the big screen. But looks Shahrukh isn’t good enough to step in Salman Khan’s shoes. We all know Sanjay Bhansali wanted to make his ambitious project with Sallu miyaan and his then alleged girlfriend Aishwarya Rai (now Bachchan). If the grapevine is true and SK’s arch rival isn’t doing the film then who knows maybe the Dabangg Khan would eventually end up playing Bajirao. Well, we wouldn’t mind that at all.
