Katrina and Deepika Coming Together For Bajirao Mastani?

Katrina and Deepika Coming Together For Bajirao Mastani? 0

Yes, this could actually happen as Sanjay Leela Bhansali is in talks with both the ladies for the leading female characters in Bajirao Mastani. The film, one of SLB's most ambitious projects have been delayed 14 years and now, SLB is determined to make it. Earlier, he was set on Aishwarya and Shahrukh but that did not pan out. Before that, he wanted to make the film with Salman Khan and Aishwarya but was not able to due to the couple's fallout.

SLB has already locked in Deepika Padukone who will play the role of Mastani. Katrina has shown great interest in the project despite Deepika being in it and is rumoured to be playing the role of Bajirao's wife, Kashibai.

After Ram Leela releases in October 2013, SLB will start the pre-production of the film and start shooting by April 2014.

We do not know yet who plays the role of Bajirao but apparently, Ranbir Kapoor is being considered it (it all sounds too convenient). But if that does pan out, will we see the real-life story REVERSED in reel-life?

Either way, if the ladies work on the project together, it'll be good to see that they are actually able to differentiate between their personal and professional lives.

Salman Khan & Kareena Kapoor is best for bajirao mastani because Kareena Kapoor look likes a princess.

    Salman will suit the role of Bajirao. He may have never acted as a king before...but believe me he is made to order for the role of a king in a period film.

    Deepika is risking her career by working with Katrina !!!
    To work with Katrina is always challenging for her fellow actresses as Katrina grabs all attention & limelight. In Jab tak hai Jaan, Anushka was totally suppressed by Katrina's Glamour. Anushka has tried to prove herself but failed to grab attention :-(

    omggggg....thanks for giving me good laughs...btw in which world do u exist???????lols

    I honestly have nothing personal with you but do you actually think she can have a perfect accent in Hindi? Lets be practical! In Hollywood there are many actresses who speak English with an accent! Its okay to have an accent! I was born and brought up in India and lived in a country where I had to learn a new language and finally moved to Canada where I picked up English but I would never be able to have an accent that Canadian-born have! Correct me if I'm wrong.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I cannot obviously speak on behalf of you. I was born and raised in Canada and I have many friends who weren't born here but speaks as if they were born here. Some don't. I get the fact that it varies from person to person. You most likely didn't go to someone who can perfect your actress

    As for Katrina, I do think her hindi has improved from the days other actresses had to dub for her. But Katrina is in a profession that needs her to be proficient in these things. I'm sure she has access to experts who can help her improve her hindi. That's one of the reasons why she's mostly in roles where she's half Brit and half Indian.

    More than the language barriers which of course, makes acting harder because actors have to concentrate their dialogue delivery skills which can take away from facial expression, body language, etc. She has shown improvement but in an acting career of 10 years. and in the position she is, people expect her to do much more. 10 years is a long time to hone one's skills.

    That's all I'm saying.
    ............
    It definitely depends from person to person but age is also a factor. I have a perfect accent in Italian because I was a teen when I learnt that language and was able to adapt that accent in that age. BUT due to my Italian accent, my English accent can never be perfect as the way I pronounce some alphabets can just never go away. Please tell me where I should go to perfect my accent. I would like to try that out as 5 years of studying in Canada + all Canadian-born friends did not really make a difference. And honestly I would like to keep it the way it is as people have different accents here and no one complains about it and if you are born in Canada then its hard for me to believe that you are picking on her accent. It might be because you did not have to go through this situation ever. You just see what she could not improve on rather I see what she could improve on in 10 years and I love and appreciate her for that. Its her time, just let her rule and even the most amazing actresses who can actually ACT are not given a damn after a certain age in Bollywood.

    What CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM are you talking about? Do you think they visit PV and read your comments? and even if they do, do you think by reading your comments they will stop working in the movies because they cannot act according to you or the film makers will stop signing them in their movies because you think certain actresses cannot act. Well, that's what I meant when I said "affecting them or their lives", I never said personal lives.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Do you think people comment on PV thinking that celebrities will read what they wrote on PV? It may happen, it may not. And constructive criticism does not mean that the person I'm commenting about must read it in order for it to be "constructive criticism". No, flmmakers won't stop signing these people and I would never wish that on ANYONE. This is their livelihood. But I do wish that such people (and this is not about Katrina but every artist who still need to work A LOT on their acting) stop taking things for granted.
    Katrina Kaif is a good looking lady who's improved since her debut in what? 2003? Yes, I liked her in Namaste London and I did find her doing a decent job in ZNMD. Also, those characters were "half Indian-half Western". She pretty much played her own character. Nonetheless, she managed to do okay.
    But being one of the most sought after actresses, she should really working on improving her Hindi (which she has) but even after 10 years, she has quite the accent. Having access to some of the best professional who I'm sure would only be glad to work with her, she should get hindi lessons and work on perfecting her speech.
    I'D ONLY BE HAPPY IF I SAW MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS IN HER! SHE'LL BE A TOTAL PACKAGE.

    Having said that, currently, Deepika and Katrina are not capable for pulling off Mastani and Kashibai.

    @PizzaPasta - I pretty much stated earlier what you just said. My suggestions were Rani and Preity. Preity is capable of acting and definitely make fit into the "looks" category required for the role. With so many non-actresses in Bollywod, Zinta definitely deserves another chance.
    As for Sonam, I'm sure she can pull off the look but her performance would definitely be questionable. I do think certain "actresses" need to attend acting classes before they consider doing more movies. It's becoming unbearable with their predictable, low-quality acting.
    ..........
    You guys watch their movies, come back and criticize their acting skills but I don't think it is affecting them or their lives even an inch!

    People who are saying that SLB would never cast an actress who cannot emote then HELLO! He did CAST Deepika which proves that he does not really care about acting anymore.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Yes, we do watch their movies and therefore, can resort to CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. Ever heard of it? I don't bash any actor/actress on their acting abilities but I have my opinion of who acts better and who does not. If I didn't watch her movies, how would I know what Katrina Kaidf, x,y,z's work was like before and what's it like now? You make no sense. And we are not here to affect their personal lives. What kind of a comment is that even? :S

    And did someone criticize her in it??LOL..If thats the case then you know nothing about acting.Acting doesn't mean screaming that "I am acting" in every scene.India is full of wannabes like that--Rani,Kareena,vidya in Dirth picture etc.Watch the legends like Meryl Streep,Judi dench,Shabana Azmi,Tabu etc..I include her performance and others like Ranicoat,Guzaarish,Chokher bali in that category..She is a powerhouse of talent!
    ------------------------------
    Oh, you forgot her OSCAR WORTHY performance in Dhoom 2 and dozens of other crap films. If anyone screams, “ I AM ACTING,” it's Aishwarya Rai. Rani is a wannabe? Rani has done films like Black, Saathiya, Yuva, Hey Ram, Bunty Aur Babli, NOKJ, Hum Tum, Talaash, Paheli, Veer Zaara and KANK- she has a versatility & talent that no other actress can compare with. I'm not a Kareena fan by any stretch of the imagination but she outstrips Aishwarya with ease. And let’s not even compare her with Vidya. You'll only embarrass her and yourself further.

I'd love to see him with a decent actress after a long time- and not a 20 yr old girl. I miss the CCCC, Baabul, KPNHJ, HDJPK, Hello Brother pairing of him and Rani- another great actor and close friend of Bhansali... Much prefer her to Katrina, Deepika, Aish, Kareena, none of which could do justice to this role.

    2,Srk as bajirao(Great!!!!)-Little experimental..but if he is gets into research(other actors must too)..he'll be great!Also his dusky complexion suits the maratha look.But hope he chucks out his typical dialogue delivery..(kkkkkiran..hmm :P_.I LOVE him BUT!!!
    3.Vidya as Kashibai(ONLY!!)-A powerhouse of talent!!WOWWW!!She canrock it in evry way!Also after seeing her in mala jau de song,she will the the best suited as Kashibai..Her weight suits perfect again!!!

    SLB make this happen!!Pleeease..And no melodrama,this time.Retain the visual opulence!And most importantly..THE SOUL!It should have the greatest story!

    Actresses who can really emote indeed, Aish who was wooden in some scenes in Devdas pure mediorce actress and Sonam the walking talking giraffe in Sawaariya who has only one expression her clownish smile.

    SLB is living in his own head he should smell the coffee and stop tripping on glamour barbie dolls and start casting acting power houses if not he will be another RGV who has been churning out disaster after disaster for about 4 years now.

    1. (Kajol, Rani, Vidya, Preity) 2.(Priyanka,Kangana,Kareena, Anushka) 3. (Aishwarya) 4. (Bipasha,Deepika) 5. (Katrina and the rest).

    Up is the list in order of how talented the actresses in bollywood as of today are. Katrina cannot speak hindi talkless of acting please you guys should spare the me debate, bollywood movies has evolved to models, girlfriend and beauty queens where are the actresses, this will show that your movies are just masala, popcorn, entertainment juggernauts, no depth, no direction, aimless fun.
    If a woman like Katrina with questionable surname and nationality, is herald as an actress in the hindi film industry then your movies and awards have become a big huge joke. SLB is considering casting Katrina, wait a minute katrina, that shows the level of crass your movies have descended to.

    Am not suprised the guy cast two star kids in Sawaariya and it bombed, he got caught up with nepotism which is rife in bollywood and cast a walking talking human giraffe with zilch talent and Ranbir who has shown great talent after his flop debut, he still has not learnt his lesson, he has shifted away from the nepotism malaise to commercial madness because a great deal of the bollywood audience are teenage boys and young adult males who are obssessed with the firang complexion, he now wants to cast an impostor, give me a break.

    As for Deepika I see no great quakes about her, she is more in the news for her high profile relationships than her historics ......wait just because she showed improved acting prowess in a masala movie that now makes her an actress? I don't know but there is something about her that reminds me so much of Bipasha, both dusky models who are always cast not because of there so called talent but there sensuality . They are both very physically stunning but am sure SLB's movie is a period drama so there will not be any scope for her to show those endless legs. So Deepika and Katrina are a no no, Deepika still has a long way she will get better I hope, but for Katrina who has been here how many years and yet she has refused to learn hindi, the laziest of them all. The girl has nothing to offer but her english and her complexion apart from that zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    SLB worked with Aishwarya but she is just an average actress nothing fantastic, I bet you he must have worked twice as hard to get out some emotions from her in Devdas but she was wooden in some scenes very incosistent actress, she has no real acting talent, so it will take so much to get out so little from her, I don't recommend her, does anyone remember Umrao Jaan, Shabd, Raavan the list is endless I better stop.

    He should please cast seasoned talented actresses and not ex beauty queens and ex models, well if not he will have another disaster on his hands, RGV any one?

    PV please post.

    For period drama's I've always thought of Sonam or Sonakshi as ideal protagonists at least from this generation of heroines.Sonam has got a very delicate,ethereal beauty brimming with old world charm & innocence.I was a bit skeptical about Sonakshi but judging by the trailer of Lootera she can certainly work period dramas.Unfortunately neither of them are strong actresses though I do believe Sonakshi's diction is excellent.My next obvious choice would be Deepika who can also look the part of a princess with ease & has an definite ethereal quality to her beauty,and while she has greatly improved I cannot say that her acting chops are great enough YET for pulling off the role of Mastani with elan'.Katrina,as much as I love the girl and think she's drop dead gorgeous,doesn't fit in with the required aesthetics of the role and in truth is a bland,expressionless actress.The only other actress who I can think of to be appropriate for this role is Aishwarya Rai who although I'm not a fan of,fares tremendously in period pieces and looks ravishing but whose chances of coming together for this seems close to nil.Rani Mukherjee or Preity Zinta or even Vidya Balan are great character actresses and powerhouses of talent,but I do not see SLB approaching even one of them.Problem with this generation of actresses is that,exceedingly pretty though they are,most can't act to save their lives.So all in all I think the entire project,ambitious though it maybe,must be cancelled to prevent a future catastrophe in the form of a drawling,dreadful film.For Bajirao however Hrithik is perfect,Ranbir I believe is still too young.

    Katrina as kashibai. a marathi petite woman. u must be kidding me. really from what angle. SLB will never cast katrina in his movies specially not this one . where u need some real acting, emoting and expressions on face. just forget it, ain't happening. would be the worst film ever.

    i know She has IMPROVED a lot , but as MASTAANI , we don't want a improved actress , we want a PERFECT actress who can pull such burden
    ------------
    Katrina has not improved, she is as dead pan as ever, she just can't handle movies where you need to emote specially the historical ones. its not her cup of tea. she is well suited to movies like singh is king, APKGK, MBKD, Namsatey London. Where you need a happy go lucky person who just smiles and dances.

    BAJIRAO MASTANI should be only Salman-Kareena-Rani. and Rekha as Radha bai, bajirao's mother.

    Vidya balan as kashi bai could be great, but she ain't doing a second fiddle. She doesn't need to. Today projects are being initiated on her strength. she doesn't need to do second lead.
    Yes my choice would be Salman-Aish-Vidya Or Salman-Kareena-Rani or Salman-Kareena-Vidya. Bajirao has to be Salman no one else.

    I'm sorry but no-one but Salman fits the role of baji rao. And no way do I want katrina in this film. Girl can't speak Hindi.

    .....
    And salman can't act to save his life.
    ------
    Well he definitely acts million times better than kat, whom even the great Yash chopra couldn't get to act. Poor soul.

    Yes I think Salman is the perfect Bajirao. Just Google Bajirao and you will know what i mean. the look build and personality, no wonder SLB is having difficulty replacing him.
    SRK OR Ajay would be total wrong casting for this movie. I guess SLB should drop this project rather than casting anybody. Ash would have made perfect mastani but obviously Salman and Ash ain't doing it together. How I wish, SLB should have have made this movie before they broke up. This would have been one hell of a film. The only replacement for Aish could be Kareena and no one else.

    I know kareena will not work with SLB after that Ram leela saga , so let see but i hope SLB cast's some one who can ACT.

    and @the person who is talking about Racism and saying people are bashing Katrina and not Deepika , I think you need to read the comments first , Deepika is being equally bashed. So better u get ur facts right before wrting such stupid stuff.

    P.s i know Katrina fans will attack me because i have Deepika's picture as my DP but i have said it before that Deepika won't be able to do justice to the movie as well.

    Lord, you are really daft. I actually cannot stop laughing at your unnecessary outburst. I know what racism is and how it works. It is like your brain refuses to enter any input that doesn't go in line with your thinking. Yes, it is unfair when the roles of 'INDIAN historical figures who are not white and do not have an anglicized accent' go to actors who are white with anglicized accents. THAT is racist. I also mentioned that it is similarly wrong to cast PC as Mary Kom and I am sure you are aware that PC is not white and yet you refuse to grasp my point.
    I am not a fan of Aishwarya and idk when you saw me in her post but to you and to everyone else citing Indians working in Hollwood as an example: USA is melting pot of different cultures. Indian actors play roles meant for Indian people there. There are roles written for brown people because a huge chunk of population is brown. I said this before, do you think they will cast Aish for the role of Joan of Arc? PC for the role of Margaret Thatcher? Do you get my point now? It is important to cast the right kind of actor for the right kind of role. If the character is a wrestler, do you think it would be okay to cast a super skinny person and go 'let's just assume this boy has muscles ya!!'. Similarly, take the role of Black Widow in Avengers. She is supposed to be a white Russian spy. Do you think Hollywood would cast Kareena Kapoor in the role ans go 'let's just assume this girl is Russian and white, why is that hard!!!!' Do you get what I mean now? Do I have to dumb my point down another notch so that it goes in your head? It is about the right casting and race is a huge part of it.
    The fact that you think racism against a POC is completely similar to a non-POC in a foreign country tells me all I need to know about how educated you are on the matter anyway.

    Katrina kaif CANNOT ACT. her fans need to know this . Just because you love her , will not change the truth. And yes deepika and anushka can act better than katrina , any day.
    Katrina is a crowd puller , gorgeous , fit , sweet girl but she cannot act.
    We have seen deepika in OSO and anushka in RNBDj and BB and i can bet that thy act better than kat.
    I remember during jthj. , i was pretty confident that mr yash casted kat so it will not be a dissapointment but thanks to her acting , the whole movie was ruined. I laughed where she was crying..this is acting ??
    And some where i read katrina is the hero of her movies ?? OH REALLY ? please show us one movie where kat is the hero of her movie. ETT was super hit due to salman khan ONLY , in jthj , the hero was srk only , who thankfully saved the movie from tanking..
    Dhoom will be block buster due to its successfull franchise and not due to amir or katrina.
    Katrina is good in movies like mbkd and apkgk only where she has to give a smile and people will go gaga over her.
    She is no.1 actress today due to her chikni chameli and sheila which pull the masses and not her acting.
    She will ruin the historic movie..likr she did in jthj..please save us from torture.
    Deepika will not be able to do justice to this movie as well...i hope thy cast Aish , vidya or rani.

    You must be kidding me girl! Deepika and Anushka are liked more than Katrina? Like are you really really sure? Stop highlighting your liking as the majority's! Deepika is still the second choice for movies with some exceptions! Get your facts right! This is the only year when Deepika will be seen in 3-4 movies and from that list race has already been released and what wonders did she do in that movie? Her presence did not really make any difference to the story at all. Yeh jawani hai deewani was offered to Katrina, to which she refused and Deepika got lucky. Ram leela was offered to Kareena and she refused and again Deepika got lucky! And oh wait I believe even Race got into her kitty by luck as Sonakshi refused to do it!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sweety, read what I wrote once more before commenting. Nowhere did I say that Deepika and Anushka are LIKED MORE than Katrina by the audience. I cannot comment on that really since I don't have the statistics in front of me. BUT WHAT I ACTUALLY SAID was that Deepika and Anushka CAN ACT more than Katrina although they're newer than Ms. Kaif in the industry. I also stated that Katrina is a good looking lady and has the x-factor to draw in the masses. Films like Ek Tha Tiger are her forte. Not a period film like Bajirao Mastani that required high calibre of acting. I would say that even Deepika and Anushka will probably find doing such an intense film quite the tough job. These ladies just don't fit the bill for the characters in BM. And fyi, YJHD was written with Ranbir and Deepika kept in mind (as Ayaan Mukherji, the filmmaker himself stated in an interview). He was apprehensive at the beginning because of Deepika-Ranbir break up. ALSO, Deepika did not replace Sonakshi in Race 2. Jacqueline did! Here's the article - http://www.indianexpress.com/news/jacqueline-fernandez-replaces-sonakshi...

    Whether Katrina is caucasian or not does not matter! I don't think that only Indian girls should get a chance in the Hindi industry. How can one even say that when we are applauding Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai, and Freida Pinto for working in Hollywood??

    I know it's an extremely idealistic approach but people should be able to get into these industries based on merit. Merit does not consist of acting only but the total package. Yes, Katrina has the x-factor and she has improved since she started but she's still nowhere near the likes of Deepika, Anushka who started much after her. Having access to and being able to afford some of the best professionals, she should have worked harder in getting Hindi right and acting skills.

    As for Bajirao Mastani, neither Deepika, nor Katrina can pull off the roles. Beautiful ladies but they are yet to be the king of actresses needed to portray Kashibai and Mastani.

    I love the girl and think she is still gorgeous for her age..but seriously u cannot put her next to any hero of the moment and have her not look older! Even next to srk she looks alot older than him!

    Either she has a vast weight loss programme started...which i think would cut the years pff her by miles or u forget about seeing her!

    And i really dont know why people keep calling katrina white!

    Hello just because she is fair doesnt make her a white girl! Either u people have never seen a white girl before or u just hate katrina! Katrina looks asian..yes her face is white as hell..but white girls have blonde hair blue eyes...and even if they dont they look very different to katrina.

    I see white girls everyday so i can say i cant find katrinas similarity tp them at all!!!

    If ash can be half of what she is she will look perfect and i wish sallu is in the film!
