Two of Bollywood’s most successful and iconic filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar were caught in bitter war of words due to the casting of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. in their upcoming mega projects. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani was in the making for several years, and the director did keep waiting for years to get the perfect cast for playing the role of Peshwa Bajirao and his love interest Mastani. There were rumours of Hrithik Roshan,Salman Khan, Katrina kaif, Ajaj, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai amongst others being considered for the film, till he signed Deepika and Ranveer for the film, due to the chemistry they once shared both on and off screen.
Now, Karan Johar wanted to sign them together for his upcoming project Shuddhi and when he heard the cast of Bajirao, he was quite surprised as he now couldn’t cast them again together for his film. This led to a war of words between them both and much bitterness till recent times when they made up by posing together at a party recently and ended their bitter fight.
Bajirao Maastani is one epic drama that was into making since almost 12 years, and if the perfect cast kept waiting Sanjay all this time, this film is sure to be watched out for, considering the perfectionist that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is.
