Recently, there was a buzz that Bhansali had chosen Shahrukh Khan to play the role of Peshwa Bajirao. However, the rumours were immediately put to rest and then we conducted a poll asking you who would BollywoodLifers like to see as Bajirao. Well, here’s the result
It’s old goss now that Sanjay Leela Bhansali wants to make a film on Bajirao Mastani. In fact, most of you know that Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai (now Bachchan) were his first choice for the film. But then the duo parted ways and the film went on hold. Recently, Shahrukh Khan’s name was being linked to the film. However, soon that buzz was declared a rumour. That’s when we asked you BollywoodLifers to pick your hero, the one you’d like to see as Peshwa Bajirao. And guess what? Hrithik Roshan has emered as the first choice by winning the maximum number of votes. The Greek God of B-town bagged 1443 votes, that is over 57 percent of the total number of votes. Ranveer Singh followed Hrithik with 438 votes (17 percent). But well, that’s nowhere close to the number of votes that the Krrish 3 actor won, hai na?
The second runner up was the playboy of B-town, Ranbir Kapoor, with 267 votes (11 percent). You won’t believe this but the next was Aamir Khan with 231 votes (9 percent). Not bad, eh? Ajay Devgn managed to get 82 votes (3 percent) from his ardent fans and Akshay Kumar won 62 votes (2 percent).
Well, so if Bhansali does see this result, he knows which actor to pick for his movie on Bajirao Mastani to be a success. There’s no doubt that Hrithik Roshan would make one hot Peshwa, hai na?
