Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani seems to have all the makings of an epic: leading Bollywood stars and a budget to match it.
According to a leading daily, the film has a budget of a whopping Rs.210 crore and this makes the film the costliest ever made here.
The film will be recreating a portion of Maratha history with the actors – Ranveer, Deepika and Priyanka Chopra – dressing head-to-toe in fabrics similar to those used in the time of Bajirao Peshwa, adds the report.
It is this need to be as authentic as possible that could be behind the film’s big budget. And if Devdas with a budget of Rs.65 crore was a preview, then Bajirao Mastani promises to be a game changer.
