Check out! The captivating new poster of ‘Bajirao Mastani’

Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is out with a new poster which is as magnificent as the movie, as perceived from the trailer. The poster features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone who play the titular characters in the movie.

Ranveer in his royal get-up is next to a perfect Peshwa ruler, while Deepika looks beautiful as his beloved queen Mastani. She is bejewelled and attired in a heavy pink and grey ensemble. There appears to be a fountain sprinkling behind them in a pond adorned with lotuses. There is also a silhouette of a fort beyond.

Despite the poster being full of romance, the word ‘Bajirao’ in the title of the film has stains of blood. Perhaps, to represent the great wars the mighty warrior has fought.

The period film has been embroiled in controversies regarding representations of facts about the characters and their life and culture. Artistes and historians, including a descendent of the royal family have accused the filmmaker of ill-research and distorting historical facts.

Nonetheless, the trailer of the movie released recently reveals the grandeur of the film, its splendid screenplay and great visual appeal, as is with every Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. ‘Bajirao Mastani’ will surely leave a mark in Bollywood history with its larger-than-life feel.

Besides, Ranveer and Deepika, Priyanka Chopra also stars in the film. She plays the role of Kashibai, the first wife of Peshwa Bajirao I. Tanvi Azmi, Mahesh Manjrekar, Milind Soman and Sanjay Mishra among others are also features in the movie.

‘Bajirao Mastani’ releases on December 18.
