Big things happen to big films. No wonder, for an affair like Bajirao Mastani, nothing less than a major screening is being planned. The starting point is the launch of the new promo which is all set to be unveiled tomorrow. To make its scale, setting and grandeur count, the makers (Eros) have invited select guests to have a dekko at Sanjay Leela Bhansali's vision unfold at a multiplex screen in Mumbai.
"Yes, a major event has been planned," informs our source, "The film is easily one of the biggest ever to have come out of the country. It is also the most lavish and mega affair from Bhansali and has complete backing from Eros. While the teaser was revealed many months back, it is time now for the promo to be launched, what with less than 30 days remaining for the film's release."
The highlight of the promo is set to be its action sequences.
"True," the source continues, "While the teaser gave more than just a glimpse of what to expect, there would be a lot more on display in the full length theatrical promo when it comes to the expansive action that has been designed. Bhansali has an eye for action, even though inherently his films are love stories. With Bajirao Mastani, he has further excelled himself. The scale and the vision has to be experienced to be believed."
No wonder, the promo is being termed as a true big screen experience.
"It would be time to feast on the promo which is rich. The big bosses are quite happy with what they see and all questions around the film's big screen appeal would be answered once the frames start unfolding," an insider adds.
The event would be headed by Bhansali and would have Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in attendance along with the bigwigs from Eros. One waits to see if Priyanka Chopra manages to make it for the event.
"It is doubtful since she is busy with Quantico shoot," the insider adds, "She has hectic arrangements down there and it would be impractical to expect her flying down for the event. Let's see, if time permits, she may just make an appearance for the video conference. However, none of that is confirmed for now. It is pretty much a wait and watch moment for all."
As for the wait when it comes to Bajirao Mastani promo launch, it would be over tomorrow.
