Mastani Deepika beats Kashibai Priyanka to star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next?
New Delhi: It is beyond doubt that Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are among the most sought after actresses in Bollywood these days. The two were last seen together in ace filmmaker's ‘Bajirao Mastani'.
In the movie both the gorgeous ladies fell in love with the same man, Bajirao played by Ranveer. Though in the movie, the Peshwa ruler maintained that he has no favorites between the two loves of his life, it seems, the man-behind teh masterpiece, the maverick Sanjay Leela Bhansali has found his favorite one.
As it happens it is Deepika Padukone who played Mastani in the movie while Priyanka portrayed the character of Kashibai.
Media reports suggest that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has finalized Deepika to play the lead actress in his next production, Gustakhiyan. The movie traces the life of poet Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam.
An insider revealed to a leading daily, “Since Priyanka got along very well with Gustakhiyan producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, reports of her playing Amrita Pritam were taken to be authentic. But the truth is, Priyanka is not doing Gustakhiyan.”
Actor Irrfan has been roped in to essay the role of Sahir. The source further added, “After Piku where they played a tentative couple, Irrfan and Deepika would get a chance to do a full-fledged romantic film. It would be a terrific follow-up. On the other hand, Irrfan and Priyanka have only done 'Saat Khoon Maaf' together which was a dud at the box office.”
Well, we are excited to see this pair on screen, again. Are you?
