The shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Bajirao Mastani" starring Bollywood's A-list actors Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra is going on in full swing.

Such is the curiosity about the film that since its makers have not yet released the first look of the mega-budget historic drama, fans have started demanding it on social media.

In no time, #WeWantBajiraoMastani1stLook started trending on Twitter.

Interestingly, following the trend, Ranveer, who plays the lead role of warrior Peshwa Baji Rao, tweeted:

While the reason behind the delay in the release of the first look is not known, rumour has it that the makers of "Bajirao Mastani" are not confident of releasing the film on 18 December as planned, since it would then clash with Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol starrer "Dilwale".

Of course, even recently they announced that the film will be released as per the scheduled date. 

Further, a major war sequence is yet to be shot, which got delayed due to Ranveer's shoulder injury.

"SLB encountered something of a setback when lead actor Ranveer Singh injured his shoulder and was out of action for a month," a source close to the project told Bollywood Life.

The team has been trying hard and reworking on the shooting schedules keeping in mind the release deadline. "There are some tough war scenes to be shot. Sanjay wants to give Ranveer's shoulder time to heal before shooting them," the source added.
