The shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical epic Bajirao Mastani is going on, on a war footing.
All perception in the market that the ambitious epic won't be able to make its release deadline of December 18 is being emphatically eradicated. Says a source close to the project, "Sanjay Bhansali encountered some amount of a setback when Ranveer Singh injured his shoulder and was out of action for a month. We admit there was a slight doubt as to whether we can make it on time despite Ranveer's injury. But now all doubts have been put to rest, as Sanjay Bhansali sat down with the film's producers Eros International."
Schedules have now been reworked to ensure shooting goes smoothly to the release date. "There are some very tough war scenes to be shot ahead. Sanjay Bhansali wants to give as much time for Ranveer's shoulder to heal as possible before shooting them," informs a source.
