In 2002, Sanjay Leela Bhansali created magic by making two lead heroines Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit dance to his tunes on Dola Re in iconic Devdas.
Cut to year 2015. He is all set to revive the magic on screen in the song Pinga, in his upcoming magnum opus Bajirao Mastani starring Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone.
Priyanka was the first one to share the first look of the song Pinga on Twitter:

The image shows the duo dressed in colour coordinated saris, draped in traditional Marathi style. Deepika looks different from her role of Mastani, Bajirao’s warrior queen.
Choreographed by Remo D’ Souza, Pinga releases tonight at 8.30. But owing to her commitments for Quantico, Priyanka will not be physically present at the release of the song. But her virtual presence is expected. Meanwhile, the second episode of Blazing Bajirao has been released:
Bajirao Mastani stars Ranveer Singh as Maratha general Peshwa Bajirao I and Priyanka as his first wife Kashibai. It hits screens on December 18, the same time as Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale, starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
