"I've always been extremely close to all things Maharashtrian, be it the food, music or cinema. I grew up listening to the Mangeshkar family's Marathi songs. And I speak fluent Marathi. It was always my wish to make a Marathi film," said Mr Bhansali
Priyanka Chopra shared the first look of the song Pinga from Bajirao Mastani on November 14. The picture features Priyanka and Deepika Padukone dressed in colour coordinated saris, draped in traditional Marathi style.
