Bajirao Mastani featured Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles and was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, which released in 2015, turned out to be a money-spinner as it collected over Rs 180 crore at the box office. While Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone portrayed titular characters, Priyanka Chopra played the role of Ranveer’s first wife Kashibai. The former Miss World garnered accolades for her portrayal including Filmfare Best Supporting actress. While we can’t imagine any other actress portraying this role with flair, in one of the interactions with media, a journalist asked PeeCee is she wanted to do the role of Mastani played by Deepika, to which the actress replied saying that she has received so much of flower bouquets that her home is looking garden now.
“Aapne film dekhi hai? Toh main kyun karti? Kashi pasand aayi? Mera ghar dekhna, garden ban gaya hai (Have you watched the film? Why would I do that role? Did you like Kashi? You should see my house, it has become a garden),” said Priyanka Chopra.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra was last seen in The White Tiger opposite Rajkummar Rao, which was a Netflix film. It was adapted from Aravind Adiga’s prize-winning novel of the same name. The film was helmed by Ramin Bahrani. It follows the extraordinary journey of a self-made man from being a tea-shop worker in a village to a successful entrepreneur in a big city. The global icon also has an international web series under her belt titled Citadel, which will be produced by Avengers: Endgame makers Russo Brothers and also feature Richard Madden in a key role. It will be directed by Raj and DK, who are known for The Family Man, Go Goa Gone and others. Recently in a Q & A session on Twitter, the actress revealed that her next Bollywood film will be out in 2022, which cheered up all her fans.
