In the presence of the film crew

Court intrigue and high romance cross paths in early eighteenth-century India in one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of all time – and one of the most expensive. When warrior princess Mastani encounters Marathi master marksman prime minister Bajirao, she is consumed by a passion that will not be denied – but soon encounters forces at court that are far more powerful than she. Gloriously strewn with colour, music, and dance, Bajirao Mastani is a vast, bejewelled celebration of love and heartbreak, and features a brilliantly charismatic, award-winning performance by Ranveer Singh as Bajirao, the star-crossed lover.
