Actress Priyanka Chopra who is seen playing the role of Kashibai, Bajirao’s first wife in Bajirao Mastani says that she did the film for Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Priyanka claims that she was the first one to get the cast in the film despite not having the lead role which is played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. Bhansali first approached Priyanka and narrated the script for which she agreed to do the film.

Talking about for getting in role of Kashibai, Priyanka Chopra says, “It was not easy to do this role. I wanted to get the Maharastrian accent right and there were many dramatic scenes, which I used to take back home. I am generally a switch on and off actor, but this character was very heart wrenching.”

The film is scheduled to hit theatres on December 8.
