I can see Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone looking at one another and smiling on hearing this news. Their spunky sassy co-star Priyanka Chopra won’t be joining them for the promotional city tours for Bajirao Mastani.
Says a source from the film’s team, “Priyanka Chopra is in the US. She returns on December 8. Until then it’s ‘Bajirao’ Ranveer Singh and ‘Mastani’ Deepika all the way.”
The two will be on a multi-city tour from next week. Priyanka may join them on Skype now and then.
Speaking of Skype Priyanka’s over-the-top performance at the trailer launch from the US has not gone unnoticed by the Bajirao Mastani team.
Says a source, “PeeCee is PeeCee. Always larger than life, always dramatic. At the trailer launch she said on Skype that broke down and cried on the third day of shooting with ‘Bhansali Sir’, as she was unable to cope with the demands of the scenes. This is completely cooked up. PeeCee’s drama at its most dramatic. She is too confident to cave in under any circumstance. From Day 1 she understood what the role demanded and gave exactly what was wanted.”
Apparently Priyanka’s strategy is to downplay her achievement in Bajirao Mastani to such an extent that audiences expect nothing from her, and then surprise them with her performance.
Says the source, “She wants to be the band mutthi of Bajirao Mastani. Let audiences flock to see Bajirao and Mastani. But they’ll come back filled with good thoughts for Priyanka’s Kashibai as well.”
