Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Bajirao Mastani' is one of the most awaited films of this year. The film created a lot of buzz for various reasons. One of them being its release date- 18th December. Recently, Rohit Shetty announced his upcoming film 'Dilwale' will hit the big screens on the same day.
Immediately there were various speculations being made about Bhansali rescheduling the release date of 'Bajirao Mastani'. However the latest developments suggest that 'Dilwale' and 'Bajirao Mastani' will surely clash at the box office this December.
Eros International's spokesperson confirmed it to a leading daily and said, "We are gearing up for a December 18 release and theatres are being blocked accordingly. The trailer will be coming out soon.”
A source close to Bhansali further revealed, "The film is being shot on a war footing, pun intended. There are many never-seen-before war scenes, dances and dramatic confrontations. But Sanjay is on schedule. In fact, he didn’t even know about Shah Rukh’s plans or that there was talk of the film being postponed.”
In 'Bajirao Mastani', Priyanka Chopra essays the role of a Maratha princess, Kashibai while Ranveer and Deepika play the role of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I and his second wife, Mastani respectively.
Surely, this December will see a clash of the biggies at the box office. Who will emerge as the winner? Only time will tell!
