Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all excited about the trailer release of his magnum opus 'Bajirao Mastani' tomorrow. In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, SLB mentioned how he has been having sleepless nights over BM and also how he is not nervous about it at all.

He said, "There was no brief given to Deepika and Priyanka. But they knew that I'm an ardent fan of Waheedaji and Sadhnaji, so I wanted similar grace and poise for their characters and I'm told that they did succeed. As for Ranveer, I've worked with him in Ram-Leela. He understands my sensibilities and my style of working. For Ram Leela he had to keep a moustache even when he was shooting for other films. For Bajirao, it was a task to keep his bald look under wraps even while promoting Kill Dil or Dil Dhadakne Do. He didn't flinch even once while wearing headgear. I have to make a special mention about him going all the way to follow my instructions."

He added, "This is a film and a subject that has been closest to my heart. I've spent sleepless nights, skipped my meals and look at my hair, it's all gray. I've lived, eaten and breathed Bajirao Mastani. A lot of people ask me if I'm nervous. I'm not. I'm happy. I've already shot 70 per cent of the film. The reason to show the promo to people from the industry at this stage is to get their objective opinion. To make my vision come alive on screen is a creative job and I ensure to work with people who understand my vision."

Well, do you think Deepika and PC can pull off a Waheedaji and Sadhnaji kind of grace?

She has no work in Bollywood so why don't she sign some reality shows on tv like Jacqueline and Mallaika .
