The shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Bajirao Mastani", starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, is going on in full swing.
Fans were left disappointed when reports of the director scrapping a dance number featuring Deepika and Priyanka surfaced. The duo was supposed to recreate the magic of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit Nene's "Dola Re".
However, it has now been learnt that the actresses are set to make it big with a lavani dance number, which will be larger than "Dola Re", reported Bollywood Life. The song will be choreographed by Remo D'souza and will be shot in Mumbai over a period of 10 days.
Both the actresses are said to be working hard to put their best foot forward for the dance number.
"Bajirao Mastani" is a period drama, based on the love story of warrior Peshwa Baji Rao, (played by Ranveer) and his second wife Mastani (played by Deepika). Priyanka will be seen essaying the role of Baji Rao's first wife, Kashibai.
Recently, there were reports that Deepika will wear a 20kg armour for a scene and is getting trained for shooting some physically demanding sequences. She will be seen performing some serious sword-wielding scenes, similar to Aishwarya and Hrithik's sword fight in Ashutosh Gowariker's historical drama, "Jodha Akbar".
