The grapevine has been abuzz for quite some time now that Priyanka Chopra won’t be joining Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for the promotional city tours for Bajirao Mastani. However, a leading daily cleared the real picture, and quoted a source from the film’s team, “Priyanka is in the US. She returns on December 8. Until then, it is ‘Bajirao’ Ranveer Singh and ‘Mastani’ Deepika all the way.” Ran-Deep will be on a multi-city tour from next week. PeeCee may join them on Skype now and then.
Apparently, the strategy is to downplay Priyanka’s achievement in BM to such an extent that audiences expect nothing from her, and then surprise them with her performance. Said the source, “She wants to be the bandh mutthi of Bajirao Mastani. Let audiences flock to see Bajirao and Mastani. But they’ll come back filled with good thoughts for Priyanka’s Kashibai as well.”
Now that’s one good strategy the team BM has in place for PeeCee. Let’s hope it works in their favour!
