Eros International and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s forthcoming magnum opus Bajirao Mastani, slated to release on December 18 worldwide, will also release in Tamil and Telugu languages. The period drama will be dubbed in these languages to reach out to a wider audience base in the south markets.
Well-known lyricist Madhan Karky who has penned songs and dialogues for Tamil hits like Baahubali and Enthiran and popular Telugu lyricist Ramajogayya Sastry known for working on latest hits Srimanthudu and Baahubali will be working on the Tamil and Telugu dubs respectively.
Talking about the film’s language versions, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, “Bajirao Mastani has been a story I have been yearning to tell and I am glad that cine goers in the south regions will get to watch the film in their own language. This is a dream I have lived with for several years and I’m looking forward to audiences across markets living my dream with me”.
Commenting on this development, Nandu Ahuja, Senior Vice President, India Theatrical, Eros International Media Ltd. said, “Following the success of films in this genre in the south markets, we felt encouraged to dub Bajirao Mastani in Tamil and Telugu. A film of this epic scale and exceptional story telling demanded that we penetrate as wide as possible”.
As the trailer of the magnum opus recently created a splash on the social media front, the creative maverick reiterates yet again why Bajirao Mastani is India's first truly global film.
Known to create nothing short of masterpieces, Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is also the recipient of a Padma Shri award, has never failed to deliver films rich in content and high on entertainment, a visual spectacle captured on celluloid.
