Tanvi Azmi is Ranveer Singh’s Mother in Historical Drama
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is in hype especially for its casting in B-town now-a-days and. Now this historic drama has just got even more interesting as the filmmaker has roped in Tanvi Azmi to play Bajirao’s mother Radhabai.
According to the reports previously names like Shabana Azmi, Dimple Kapadia and Supriya Pathak were considered for the part.
A close source from the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ team revealed that, “Supriyaji was out because Bhansali had already worked his magic on her talent in ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela‘. Getting Ranveer Singh, deepika padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Surpriya Pathak together again in ‘Bajirao…’ after ‘…Ram Leela’ would have been too much of an instant replay.”
For the strong domineering part of Bajirao’s mother Tanvi was seen as the best choice.
She had to go through a compatibility test with Ranveer Singh to see whether they looked like mother and son before being signed on.
