Here’s the latest goss from the sets of SLB’s upcoming period drama…
Grandeur and authenticity are synonymous with any Sanjay Leela Bhansali film; be it the sets of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Devdas or the costumes from Ranveer-Deepika starrer, Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela. The director, who is known for his larger than life films, does his homework well. And with his upcoming period drama, Bajirao Mastnai starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, the legacy continues…
We know that SLB has had Ranveer shave off his head for the role of Maratha General, Peshwa Bajirao. Now we hear that the actor will be donning an original armour as part of his costume, since warfare is a major part of the character.
Talking to a popular daily, a source said, “Ranveer not only had to shave his head to achieve the look for the film, but he also had to wear a 17 kg original armour while shooting for it.”
And the filmmaker doesn’t stop here; he in fact got some costumes replicated from the period the film is set in, after extensive research. The source added, “He is not one to compromise on his vision. He has personally supervised the sourcing of all the material that was used to make these replicas.”
Knowing Bhansali, we are sure this one is going to be great and just can’t wait to see how Bajirao Mastani turns out.
