Sanjay Leela Bhansali suprised everyone by declaring yet another project, Baiju Bawra.
The big announcement from him after the Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi. Besides being a magnum opus and a project to look forward to, the announcement is already making ripples because of the release date Bhansali has decided.
Baiju Bawra will be hitting the screens on Diwali 2021. It will clash at the box office with Bhansali’s long-term muse Deepika Padukone’s upcoming project Mahabharat.
Deepika will be playing the role of Draupadi in the ambitious project she has decided to produce with Madhu Mantena.
Mahabharat will be her second production after Chhapaak and will tell the epic tale as seen through the eyes of Draupadi.
It will be made in a series of parts with the first one slated to release in Diwali 2021.
This is the first time in 14 years that Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be having a face-off with Deepika at the box office.
