Watch: Deepika Padukone mesmerises in 'Deewani Mastani'

It is a tribute to K Asif's grand picturisation of 'Jab pyar kiya toh darna kya'

Mumbai: The makers of much-awited film 'Bajirao Mastani' released another track 'Dewaani Mastani' from the film. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is famous for the grandeur of his films and creating elaborate and lavish sets in his movies, and he takes it a notch higher with this outing. The song is inspired by "Mughal-e-Azam" and its famous song "Jab pyar kiya toh darna kya". The number sees Mastani (Deepika) dancing in abandon for Bajirao (Ranveer Singh) as his first wife Kashi Bai (Priyanka) looks at them.

It is a tribute to K Asif's grand picturisation of "Jab pyar kiya toh darna kya", a tense moment in the classic, where Anarkali finally challenges Mughal emperor Akbar by openly declaring her love for his son Salim. At the song launch in Delhi, Deepika said, "The song is inspired by 'Mughal-e-Azam'. We have tried to recreate the Aaina Mahal (mirror palace). But it is also Bhansali's contemporary take or version of a song, where Mastani is completely besotted by Bajirao and is madly in love with him. It does not matter to her where she is or who is watching her. She has eyes only for this man, who is sitting in front of her. She is intoxicated by love."

Deepika said it was an emotional moment for the team to see the set destroyed after they wrapped up the song. She said, "This song is my grandest song, in terms of sheer scale... Within the movie itself, this song is probably the grandest thing that we have done. We had the maximum number of visitors on this, it almost became like a museum. At one point of time, we were considering to strike some deal and make it a museum. When we finished shooting the song after 9-10 days we didn't have the heart to break it down."
