Actress Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone will peform an ambitious lavani number in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Bajirao Mastani.

Keen to recreate the magic similar to “Dola Re” from Devdas, the director has listed the help of choreographer Remo D’Souza.

The song will be shot over a period of 12 days, with over 50 background dancers on a larger-than-life set. The actresses have been rehearsing for over 10 days for the song, given its challenging choreography.

“Though it is essentially a lavani number, it would not be wrong to call it a mix of folk and classical dance as well. It is never easy to work with SLB as he wants nothing short of perfection. Also, with the costumes, it is never easy to choreograph or perform for the actresses. This one has two actresses so it will require absolute perfection and synchronization,” Remo said.

“After 12 years, since Devdas, audiences will see two contemporary actresses dance together in the same frame. It is a lavani composed folk song and a lot of work has gone into the sets and the filming of the song. Both Priyanka and Deepika have worked extremely hard on the song and rehearsed long hours for it,” said Bhansali.
