The shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Bajirao Mastani" is going on in full swing.

The entire film's unit is currently in Jaipur, and lead actor Ranveer Singh was spotted posing for cameras on the sets.

In the picture that surfaced on the internet, Singh, who sports a bald look in the film, is seen wearing his trademark black hat smiling away with a fan.

There were reports that Singh will soon be joined by his alleged grifriend and co-star Deepika Padukone after she wraps up her shoot for Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha" opposite ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor in Delhi.

Both Singh and Padukone will shoot some major portions of the film in the Pink City.

The period-drama is based on the love story of warrior Peshwa Baji Rao, who was the Peshwa (Prime Minister) to the fourth Maratha Chhatrapati (emperor) Shahu, and his second wife Mastani.

Singh plays Maratha general Baji Rao while Padukone will be portraying the role of Baji Rao's second wife, Mastani. The film also has Priyanka Chopra playing a supporting role as Baji Rao's first wife, Kashibai.

Although, "Bajirao Mastani" will essentially revolve around Singh and the "Happy New Year" actress, the story of Baji Rao's troubled first wife Kashibai is an important part of the film.

"Bajirao Mastani" also features Aditya Pancholi and Mahesh Manjrekar in important roles and is slated to hit theatres on 25 December 2015.
