Deepika’s Sword Fighting Skills
It was reported earlier that Ranveer Singh is undergoing training in ancient martial art Kalaripayyatu for his role in upcoming period romance Bajirao Mastani and now, it has been learned that even Deepika Padukone, who plays warrior-princess Mastani in the film, will be learning to fight with a sword. Apart from sword-fighting, she will also learn horse-riding. In the past, Deepika had learned Tamil and Marathi for her roles in Chennai Express and Happy New Year. She will learn all this alongside her shooting schedule. Apart from Ranveer and Deepika, Bajirao Mastani, which will be directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, also stars Priyanka Chopra, who plays Kashibai, the first wife of Maratha general Bajirao.
