The trailer of the film Bajirao Mastani will be released on digital platform on Wednesday ahead of its theatrical release alongside Kabir Khan’s directorial “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” on July 17, were the news doing the rounds of Bollywood.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted, “#BajiraoMastani trailer is attached to #BajrangiBhaijaan. And, yes, it’s releasing on 18 Dec 2015. Clashing with #Dilwale,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted on Twitter.
Also Priyanka Chopra expressed her excitement on the microblogging site, “So exciting! Best present ever! #BajiraoMastani trailer releasing on my bday weekend!!! Yay! Can’t wait to share with you all! Thank u SLB,” she wrote.
So what went wrong? Why didn’t the trailer release?
If rumors are to be believed, Salman Khan did not want Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ to release with his ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and instead wanted his production ‘Hero’ Trailer to be released with Bajrangi.
So was this the real reason or was it the past rivalry with Bhansali that Salman didn’t want the trailer to be released with his movie?
