Mumbai/IBNS-CMEDIA: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Thursday shared a video from the 2015 Bollywood historical romance, Bajirao Mastani, featuring Deepika Padukone gracefully dancing to the mesmerizing tunes of ‘Deewani Mastani’ song rendered by Shreya Ghoshal, leaving the fans delighted.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film boasted a stellar cast including Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas in leading roles.

Adapted from Nagnath S. Inamdar’s Marathi novel Rau, Bajirao Mastani intricately woven the tale of Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I (1700-1740) and his second wife, Mastani.

Shreya Ghoshal and Deepika fans reacted and commented on the post in large numbers.

“Deepika Padukone performing “Deewani Mastani” (sung by Shreya Ghoshal) from the movie Bajirao Mastani. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas,” read the caption accompanying the post by the Academy Awards, colloquially known as the Oscars.

Adding to the excitement, Ranveer Singh reacted to the post with a heartfelt comment, describing the performance as “Mesmeric!”

Enthusiastic netizens flooded the comments section with love, crowning Deepika Padukone as the “Queen of Indian Cinema” and lauding Shreya Ghoshal’s soulful rendition, which perfectly complemented Deepika’s on-screen charm. One user expressed their satisfaction, stating, “Finally! This movie DESERVES attention!” Another fan praised Deepika’s portrayal of Mastani as “a piece of art.”

Notably, Deepika Padukone also attended the 95th Academy Awards in March 2023 as a presenter alongside celebrities such as Halle Berry, John Travolta, and Harrison Ford.

The actress introduced the performance of “Naatu Naatu” – a song from the 2022 movie “RRR”.

For the uninitiated, this energetic track made history by winning the Oscar in the Best Song category, becoming the first Indian film song to achieve this prestigious accolade in the category.
