Sanjay Leela Bhansali reportedly dreamed of making Bajirao Mastani with then Bollywood’s most loved jodi Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, but later, after the bitterness in their relationship, Aishwarya almost became unattainable to even work with Salman in any projects as she had cut all ties with him forever. It was Salman who suggested SLB to drop Ash and cast Katrina Kaif as his Mastani instead. According to reports, this news is currently going viral on how Salman Khan was upset that Aishwarya was unattainable to even do a film with him, so he went straight to Bhansali’s office and took Kat and said she is yours Mastani.
But today the world has its Bajirao Mastani in Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone; fate had reserved this film only for them and later they even made 2 more films with SLB which were also highly anticipated due to the casting of Ram Leela and Padmaavat. Sanjay Leela Bhansali in one of his interviews had said that how this film cast Ranveer, Deepika and Priyanka Chopra, “Today who would expect Ranveer and Deepika to be part of the cast, 12 or 15 years later. They must have been at school when I announced the film. Salman was the first and it didn’t work out.”
Salman Khan and Aishwarya have been separated for more than 20 years now, but their fan club is still very strong and they only hope to see them together on the same screen at least once. We wonder if it will happen again in this life. Today, both have moved on; actually salman khan was also in a relationship with katrina kaif after breaking up with ash and today even she is married to vicky kaushal but the two managed to keep their friendship intact. Salman and Katrina will be seen together in Tiger 3.
