‘Bajirao Mastani’ teaser out a day ahead of its trailer launch on July 17

After coming out with the first poster and first look of the characters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’, the makers have released a teaser of the historical romance film today ahead of the film’s trailer launch along with the release of Salman Khan starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ tomorrow (July 17).

The film’s co-producer Eros Now released the exclusive teaser video on Twitter and wrote, “It's that moment when time stands still. Presenting the spellbinding #BajiraoMastaniTeaser!”

The two-and- half-minute long teaser is filled with scenes of battlefield. Although the film is said to be a romance, the teaser doesn’t provide any such glimpse except the only dialogue in the teaser at the end, when Ranveer’s character reveals his love for Mastani, according to a report on NDTV’s website.

Ranveer Singh plays the role of Maratha warrior Peshwa Baji Rao I while Deepika plays the role of Mastani, the lover and second queen of Baji Rao. Priyanka portrays the role of the Peshwa’s first wife Kashibai.

Bhansali’s ambitious project was announced way back in 2003. However, due to various reasons, it could not be made then. The filmmaker then shelved his project for some years for not finding appropriate cast. Thereafter in 2014, it was confirmed that Bhansali will be working on the long-pending project with the cast of his film ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’.

Bajirao Mastani’ is finally going to hit screens in December and is set to clash with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer ‘Dilwale’.
