The wait to meet the third major character in the historical saga Bajirao Mastani came to an end when Priyanka Chopra released the first look of her character from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film.
Chopra, who is currently in Montreal, Canada, said the poster is a pre-Diwali gift to her fans.
“#KashiBaiPoster Simple... Poignant... Poetic... Sanguine... Devoted #somanyemotions,” Chopra tweeted on Sunday.
The actress, who made her international TV debut with Quantico this year, also tweeted: “Early Happy Diwali from cold Montreal. I miss home! Here is the first look of #KashiBaiPoster”.
Bajirao Mastani narrates the love story of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I (played by Ranveer Singh) and Mastani (Deepika Padukone). Chopra plays Bajirao’s first wife Kashibai.
In the poster, Chopra holds an aarti thali (a plate used in Hindu prayer ceremonies) and is dressed in traditional Maharashtrian attire.
The film is scheduled to release in the UAE on December 17.
