Aishwarya, not Deepika, was Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Mastani, but she left the film because of Salman Khan, still regrets it


Sanjay Leela Bhansali: Famous filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is in the news for his web series 'Hiramandi'. His film is being praised a lot. But even before this, Bhansali Sahab has made many great films. Which includes famous films like Padmavat, Bajirao Mastani, Hum Dil De Chuke. But the special thing is that the superhit film Bajirao Mastani, released in the year 2015, was already ready in the mind of the director.

But due to disputes between the artists with whom he wanted to make this film, it got shelved. Yes, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra were not Bhansali's first choice but Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan were at the forefront of this list. Let us know this whole story in detail….

Aishwarya was Sanjay Leela Bhansali's first choice

Bajirao Mastani was released on the big screen in the year 2015. This was the best film of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's career. Adorned with luxurious sets, costumes and star cast, this film broke records at the box office. However, before these three celebs, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had chosen the character of Bajirao Mastani years ago. Actually, Bhansali's first choice for Mastani was Aishwarya and he had considered Salman Khan for Bajirao. But Aishwarya refused him for this film.

Aishwarya did not want to work with Salman Khan

Let us tell you that Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Aishwarya Rai had participated together in Karan Johar's show 'Coffee with Karan'. During that time, the host of the show Karan had asked both of them why they are not making Bajirao Mastani with Aish and what is it that the actress has refused him for this film. On this, Aishwarya replied that Sanjay wanted me to be Mastani but I never wanted to work with Bajirao who was in his opinion. Therefore, Aishwarya had said this without taking the name of Salman Khan.

Salman wanted to make Katrina Kaif mastani

Speaking on this question, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had said, whenever I think of Bajirao Mastan, Salman Khan comes to my mind. He looks amazing in this character. But Ash refused and I respect his decision. At the same time, if media reports are to be believed, Salman Khan had suggested Katrina Kaif's name to Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the role of Mastani, but the director had already created the entire story. Whose characters he had already thought about.
