The launch of the much awaited song from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Bajirao Mastani has been postponed. Pinga, which features a dance face-off between the two leading ladies of the film -- Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra - was set to release today. However, following the unfortunate Paris terrorist attacks, the makers decided to postpone the event.
There was an official statement out from the film's team:
"In the wake of the Oaris attacks that took place early this morning, the team of Bajirao Mastani will be calling off the Pinga song launch event that was scheduled to take place this evening. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Eros International and the entire team of Bajirao Mastani are deeply saddened by the tragedy. The team's sincerest love and prayers to all those affected.
Even popular trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the same:
The song features Deepika Padukone aka Mastani and Priyanka Chopra aka Kashibai in traditional attire. Choreographed by Remo D'Souza, it took over 12 days to shoot for the grand song with over 50 background dancers in the larger than life sets created by Bhansali.
Bajirao Mastani is slated for release on 8 December, 2015, along with Shah Rukh Khan's Dilwale.
