"I was in tears at the end of narration; it took some time for it to settle in as Bajirao Mastani is a very intense film with high octane drama. It is all there at the script level and I was left frozen after the narration and with a little over a month left for release, I am a bit nervous and I hope everyone likes the film."
Being a period film, comparisons between Baahubali and Bajirao Mastani are bound to happen. However, Ranveer considers the wide acceptance of Baahubali a positive sign for Bajirao Mastani. The actor, who himself is a huge fan of Baahubali director SS Rajamouli, said,

"First of all, I loved Baahubali, I was blown away by the visual effects and the action in it. I think, people have been very kind to period dramas. Yes, Baahubali did raise the bar in terms of visual effects and I really love Rajamouli as a director. I can assure you one thing - Baahubali is very different from Bajirao Mastani. Baahubali is a dramatic action movie, ours is a dramatic romance. It is a love story which focuses on the emotions, drama and love story. Yes, we do have a lot of action, we do have a lot of visual effects but they are not the core driving force of the film. I do see the wide acceptance of Baahubali a positive sign for our film."
Bajirao Mastani releases on 18 December 2015.
