Bajirao Mastani to have a longer run and higher collections at the BO- predicts numerologists!


Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, Bajirao Mastani, is all set to hit theatre screens tomorrow and audiences are waiting with baited breathe to witness his poetry in motion.


The period drama told in signature Sanjay Leela Bhansali style, will release alongside a contemporary entertainer and while there has been several speculation surrounding the clash, tarot card reader and numerologist ,Shradha Salla, predicts how Bajirao Mastani will have a longer run and higher collections at the box office.


Predicts Shradha, “Bajirao Mastani is a sure-shot super hit, going into three figures, a movie that will be remembered for a long time. Some people will love it, some will hate it, but every single person will go watch it. The music will be a hit, too. The dances and dress trends will be followed with box-office collections. BM will cross Dilwale at some point because this movie will be watched more than once by the same person.”


The team of Bajirao Mastani stays unperturbed – remains confident – will be screening film before Dilwale!

Known to create nothing short of masterpieces, Sanjay Leela Bhansali ,has never failed to deliver films rich in content and high on entertainment. With Bajirao Mastani ,the filmmaker now promises to outdo himself  !


It is truly a great time for cinema as once in every 50 years does a film of this caliber come from India. Promising to be not just a film ,but an experience, Bajirao Mastani remains one of the most anticipated films in the history of Indian cinema.


The film is all set to release worldwide tomorrow and while a lot is being said about its clash with Dilwale, the teams continues to remain confident and unperturbed with comparisons.

Sources reveal that the makers are so confident about what they call “an experience and not a film” , that they will be screening the movie and have a special showcasing before the Dilwale screening, speaking volumes for the kind of confidence they have in the film.

Says a source, ” The trade and opinion makers have been rooting for the film . With strong content , breathtaking visuals, production values on par International standards , coupled with smart strategic promotions ,it looks like the team has a winner on their hands. While the clash has been made into a circus, the team of Bajirao Mastani remains unfazed as content is king and is proud to showcase their film”

‘Rao’ On Set! Ranveer Renames Himself for “Bajirao Mastani’


Playing a character in a period drama requires an actor to live and breathe in a different era altogether. It’s because of this that Ranveer Singh is trying unusual ways to ensure that he delivers better than his best as Peshwa Bajirao. One such method is to call him ‘Rao’ instead of Ranveer Singh on set. 


In playing Peshwa Bajirao, Ranveer Singh has taken on a once in a lifetime role; that of a fearsome Maratha warrior and a just king who is still remembered in folktales. Lots have been said about his physical & mental preparation for this part. 


In order to ensure that he stays focused while shooting, Ranveer has surprised his assistant directors with an odd request. He has asked everyone to call him ‘Rao’ and address him with the name of his character. While his request has let to some good-natured leg pulling on set, Ranveer insists that this be the practice. Says a source, “This helps him stay in character & helps him not be reminded that he is Ranveer Singh. So when he is on set he is fully in character.” 


Even while speaking on walkie-talkies, as assistants tend to do while a shoot is on, they call him Rao. So far, this mental shift into this historical character has worked for him, even though it’s not commonly done. 


Clearly, Ranveer is pushing himself beyond the call of duty to bring alive the magic & might of ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
