New Delhi: Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus movie ‘Bajirao Mastani' has been developed into a first-of-its-kind web series titled ‘Blazing Bajirao'. The web series will show animated characters of the movie.
The graphic series is an eight part web series which will tell the story of Peshwa Bajirao. It will be available online in September and this just shows how the makers of the movie led by SLB are trying new promotional strategies.
Blazing Bajirao's teaser was released by Eros Now on their Twitter handle and the animated avatars of Ranveer Singh as Bajirao, Priyanka Chopra as Kashibai and Deepika Padukone as Mastani will surely stun you.
Vaibhav Vishal, chief creative officer of Eros Now, told a leading daily, “The animated film has two purposes — one, to educate the audience about Baji Rao and the socio-political cultural history of that era, and second, to make Baji Rao the hero that he must be for our young viewers. We want them to know how cool he was, and how amazingly he led his life.”
The series is an attempt to narrate the story and describe life in the times of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao. The trailer has definitely escalated the expectations from the period drama. The stars of the movie also tweeted about the release of the trailer.
‘Bajirao Mastani' will hit theatres on December 18 this year.
