Shah Rukh Khan is being approached by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his dream project Bajirao Mastani.
This film is based on the epic love story of the renowned Maratha general Peshwa Bajirao and his half-Muslim second wife Mastani. In fact, the film maker has the script ready in 2003 itself and announced that Salman Khan ans Aishwarya Rai would play the lead roles. The project did not take odd then.
Bhansali wants to revive his pet project and since it is a big budget film, only a top star can make the film viable. He is said to have approached SRK who agreed to go through the script.
The director, who has won 2 National Awards and 9 Filmfare Awards, has earlier made Devdas with SRK and Aishwarya in 2002.
