Sanjay Leela Bhansali is said to have always wanted to cast Salman Khan in his dream project ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Not many know why this collaboration didn’t happen and why Dabangg Khan turned down SLB’s pet project. Here are three major reasons why Salman Khan didn’t act in ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
1) Bald Warrior: When initially ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was narrated to Salman, he was interested in doing the magnum opus, but the superstar was a bit skeptical going bald for the movie. SLB was adamant Salman shave his head for the movie and give a major chunk of his dates for the movie. Staying bald for almost a year and not doing any other movie in that time was a big challenge for Salman, which made the actor re-think if he should really go on to act in this period drama.
