The first teaser of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ featuring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra is out and must say like other Bhansali films, this teaser is also about grandeur, awe-inspiring battle scenes.
Based on the life of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao 1,’Bajirao Mastani’ trailer gives us glimpses of epic battle scenes and sword fights. Ranveer Singh, who plays Bajirao, is royal and valorous as he leads his men to war. Ranveer, who has gone bald for the film, is sporting a moustache.
His beautiful wives, played by Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are seen gliding around the palace in stunning ethnic wear. While his first wife, played by Priyanka Chopra, seems to be on the sidelines, his second wife Mastani (Deepika) appears to have mastered her husband’s skill when it comes to the bow and arrow.
Both Ranveer and Deepika are magical in the first trailer.
Deepika is also shown fiercely protecting their child from an armed swordsman, as she neatly slices him.
‘Bajirao Mastani’ spills over with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s cinematic style with regards to the colours, music and what promises to be some incredible story telling.
The over two-minute trailer, which is about the love story of the Peshwa ruler and his second wife Mastani, has no dialogues, except at the end you can hear Ranveer (Bajirao) declaring his love for Mastani: “Bajirao ne Mastani se mohabbat ki hai ayashi nahi”.

The costumes, locations and the battle troops in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ trailer add to the aura of the glimpse into Bhansali’s new project, which also reflects the visual delight of his past movies “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam”, “Devdas” and “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”.
‘Bajirao Mastani’ is slated to release on December 18.
