Priyanka Chopra quickly adapted to the demanding work style on Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ after broke down on the third day of shooting

Priyanka-Chopra-and-Deepika-Padukone-in-Pinga“Bajirao Mastani” actor Ranveer Singh has revealed that his co-star Priyanka Chopra had broken down on the third day of shooting the film. The reason? Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali!

At the period drama’s trailer launch, Priyanka was asked about the difficulties she had to face in shooting the film.

She said: “I didn’t have to do much hard work. It was all for Deepika (Padukone) and Ranveer. I used to come on the sets and wear a nauvari (nine-yard sari) and all the traditional jewellery. As I am not used to it, that was difficult.”

In this context, Ranveer disclosed that Priyanka almost gave up and was tearful.

“Let me tell you, Priyanka broke down on the third day of shooting and called us ‘mad’ for working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the second time. But she quickly adapted to the demanding work style on the set and she rocked it,” said the actor, who last worked with Deepika in the director’s “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”.


For Deepika, it was the war sequences that were tough to shoot.

“Especially when Ranveer met with an accident and he had broken shoulder. We had to take precautions for not experiencing something like this again. I had to learn so many things like Kalaripayattu, horse-riding and kathak, for the role.”

“Bajirao Mastani” narrates the story of the 18th century Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I and his second wife Mastani. The film will release on December 18.
