Ac­tor Ran­veer Singh (right), who plays the pro­tag­o­nist in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s up­com­ing film, said he is ner­vous about how peo­ple would re­act to his por­trayal of Maratha war­rior Peshwa Ba­ji­rao. The 30-yearold ac­tor is ner­vous about the au­di­ence ac­cept­ing his char­ac­ter in the film. “There is ner­vous­ness about how peo- ple will re­act on see­ing my char­ac­ter. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been work­ing on this film for 12-15 years. Lot of hard work, blood, sweat has gone into it. We all have col­lec­tively worked on this film,” Ran­veer said.

“We are try­ing to give peo­ple some­thing mem­o­rable ... some­thing that peo­ple would cher­ish. We are ner­vous about how peo­ple will re­act to the film,” he added. Ran­veer plays Peshwa (Prime Min­is­ter) Ba­ji­rao of the Maratha Em­pire. The film nar­rates the story of Ba­ji­rao and his sec­ond wife Mas­tani played by ac­tor Deepika Padukone. Priyanka Cho­pra plays Ba­ji­rao’s first wife Kashibai. “For quite some­time I have been stay­ing un­der a rock. I am far re­moved from every­thing else that is hap­pen­ing. I have my sin­gu­lar fo­cus to play Ba­ji­rao with all my abil­i­ties be­cause it’s one in a life time op­por­tu­nity and I had to do jus­tice to the role,” he said.

“Every­thing in my life has taken a back­seat. I am not even in touch with any of my friends... Not got enough time to spend with my fam­ily, but all of them are very un­der­stand­ing,” he added.
