Bajirao Mastani (2015)
(Released: Dec 18, 2015)
Bajirao Ballal Peshwa(Ranveer Singh) is an ambitious Maratha warrior who has set his eyes on creating one Hindu nation, the Bharatvarsha and not only has the wit but also the valor to fight for it. We are even told in the story at one point that he has won all the 40 battles that he ever fought.
During the Mughal invasion, Bajirao is away from home planning an attack on Delhi when he meets Mastani(Deepika Padukone) who has traveled to seek his help to save her hometown Bundelkhand which is being held captive by the Mughals. She is the daughter of King Chhatrasal and his Muslim wife. While Mastani's dedication and her bravery impress Bajirao, he is determined to help her. Soon, in the midst of the battle, the duo fall in love with each other.
Back home, Bajirao's wife, Kashi(Priyanka Chopra) is eagerly awaiting his return, oblivious of the fact that her husband has fallen in love and even accidentally married another woman.
Will Bajirao and Mastani's inter-religious love breathe in the strong opposition of his Hindu community and family? Will Kashi accept the fact that she has to share her husband with Mastani for the rest of her life?
