In 16th-century India, undefeated warrior Bajirao (played by IU alumnus Ranveer Singh) is given the title of Prime Minister and becomes the greatest weapon of his Empire. Bajirao receives an urgent message that a nearby village is under siege by the Moguls. The rider who delivered the message is a beautiful Rajput princess, Mastani, with whom Bajirao falls in love. Their relationship meets opposition from his family, his people, and his priests, but nothing will stop their undying love. The film won 12 International Indian Film Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Singh. In Hindi with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
