Forget about bursting crackers in Diwali as Sanjay Leela Bhansali did the fireworks when he announced his next directorial venture, Baiju Bawra. After Inshallah got shelved which disappointed many, Sanjay decided to collaborate with the lead of Inshallah, Alia Bhatt for Gangubai Kathiawadi who reportedly, will be seen sharing the screen space with Ajay Devgn. As this news itself got all pumped up with excitement, we heard that Sanjay has roped in Ranveer Singh for Baiju Bawra which we had reported yesterday also. We also mentioned that he might be seen romancing Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra in the film, however, the rumours are rife saying the leading lady will be none other than Priyanka.

If the recent gossip mongers are to be believed, then Ranveer might be seen romancing Priyanka Chopra, AGAIN! Reportedly, Priyanka is said to be the leading lady in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra. Since the film is around musical revenge drama of maverick maestro, Priyanka can be a good pick, knowing her singing chops as well. Plus, we have seen their oh-so-sizzling chemistry in Bajirao Mastani, Dil Dhadakne Do and Gunday and a special song Ram Chhahe Leela in Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela, so seeing them together again in the film we can only expect some fireworks. 

However, no official announcement has been made from both the parties but if this news is going to be true then we are super psyched to see this Jodi again on the screen. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Ranveer will play the title role of the young Baiju Bawra to Ranveer and Tansen’s role to Ajay Devgn which he reportedly turned down. 

Talking about the film, Baiju Bawra was known to be an extremely talented dhrupad singer-composer, who challenged ace musician and Hindustani classical vocalist Tansen, who was one of Navratnas in Akbar’s court, to do a singing duel in order to avenge the death of his musician father, at the court of Mughal Emperor Akbar.
