Fun Facts & Triva

  • This was Bhansali's first ever film based on history.
  • The director thought of making Baajirao Mastaani even before directing his first film.
  • Initially, Salman Khan & Aishwarya Rai were about to play the lead characters. But the idea flopped due to their breakup in real life.
  • Further, Salman recommended Katrina Kaif to play Mastaani but things didn't work out.
  • The director then approached Kareena Kapoor for Mastaani & Rani Mukherjee for Kashibai. This idea failed too.
  • On Salman's recommendation, Bhansali auditioned Bhumika Chawla for Kashibai. But things didn't work out in her favor.
  • After a decade, the director approached Ajay Devgan for Bajirao. But his fees demand turned it down.
  • After the success of Ram-Leela, Bhansali finalized Ranveer Singh seeing his dedication & potential.
  • Later, Deepika Padukone & Priyanka Chopra were signed for the roles of Mastani & Kashi Bai respectively.
  • Deepika underwent special dance classes to learn Kathak & Kalaripayattu. Ranveer also learned Kalaripayattu.
  • The actor actually shaved his head to fit in the character more properly.
  • On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra learned Marathi.
  • Pinga's iconic hand step is actually inspired by Bhansali's cook.
  • For the role of Bajirao's mother, Tanvi Azmi was not the first choice. Shabana Azmi, Dimple Kapadia & Supriya Pathak were approached first.
  • For the extraordinary outfits, the filmmaker collaborated with the most talented designer, Anju Modi. After the research of 15-18 months, she finally delivered around 300 awesome costumes.
