Ranveer Singh picks Bajirao Mastani over Shuddhi
While, the names of Shah Rukh, Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgn were being tossed around to play Bajirao, Ranveer Singh, Bhansali’s Ram from ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ was always the frontrunner.In fact, according to a source close to the development, the director had told the actor at the very onset that he was his Bajirao.
Since both films have announced the same release date, Christmas 2015, there is no way the actor can accommodate both his favourite filmmakers. Moreover, Bajirao Mastani, which Bhansali plans to start by the end of this year, will be an 11-month commitment and Ranveer may even have to shave off his hair for the film.
So, since Bhansali approached him first, Ranveer has decided to stay with him while reluctantly turning down Karan’s offer. Last heard, Karan was wooing Aamir Khan to take up Shuddhi.
