The trailer of much-awaited period drama "Bajirao Mastani", starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, is finally out.
The trailer starts with Ranveer as Peshwa Bajirao fighting out at a battlefield. Though the actor looks impressive as a Maratha warrior, the war sequence with a fleet of soldiers reminds us of Ashutosh Gowariker's "Jodha Abkar".
Deepika as Mastani is seen in a never-seen-before avatar. The actress looks gorgeous and fearless as a warrior, who is preparing herself to master the art of sword-wielding. In one of the scenes, Deepika is seen bravely protecting a child from a swordsman.
Priyanka, as Bajirao's first wife Kashibai, looks impressive as a traditional Maharashtrian queen.
Going by the three-minute-long promo, unveiled by Eros Now, the mega-budget historic drama looks extravagant with magnificent royal setting, palace and ethnic wear, promising to narrate an epic love story. However, music and colourful backdrops remind us of Bhansali's previous outing "Ram-Leela".
The plot of "Bajirao Mastani" will essentially revolve around real life couple Ranveer and Deepika; however, the story of Baji Rao's troubled first wife Kashibai is an important part of the film too.
"Bajirao Mastani" also features Aditya Pancholi and Mahesh Manjrekar in important roles and will hit theatres on 18 December, 2015.
