Finally, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani has seen the light of the day with Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra joining the cast. But history has it that the film has undergone several changes in its casting ever since it was conceptualised.

Old 'Bajirao Mastani' poster featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor still in Sanjay Bhansali's office?

Initially the film was planned to go on floors after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan and Rani Mukerji in lead roles. But after Aishwarya and Salman's love affair went kaput, SLB decided to cast Kareena as Mastani. It was then that Salman and Kareena even shot for the film's poster. Salman has even cropped his hair for the poster back then.

Post that, the film still took a long time to go on floors and in between that, Sanjay and Salman had a major showdown post which Sanjay decided to cast Hrithik Roshan for the film. And that too did not fall in place. And rumours had it that the director then approached Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan, both of whom turned down the role.

It was only after Ram Leela's success that he decided to make his ambitious film with Ranveer and Deepika in the lead playing Peshwa Bajirao and Mastani with his Mary Kom heroine Priyanka Chopra playing Kashibai!

But we hear that the old poster featuring Salman and Kareena still lies in SLB office! Such memories, we say.
