Actor
Addinath
Kothare
in
his
latest
interview
with
a
leading
tabloid,
revealed
that
he
had
auditioned
for
the
role
of
Chimaji
Appa
in
Sanjay
Leela
Bhansali’s
epic
period
drama

Bajirao
Mastani

which
starred
Ranveer
Singh,
Deepika
Padukone
and
Priyanka
Chopra
in
leading
roles.
However,
he
lost
the
part
to
his
‘dear
friend’ and
fellow
actor
Vaibhav
Tatwawadi.

While
speaking
with
Hindustan
Times,
Addinath
shared,
“Vaibhav
and
I
were
the
final
two
actors
for
the
part.
I’ve
been
a
massive
Bhansali
fan,
so
getting
to
work
with
him
was
something
that
I
was
genuinely
looking
forward
to.
However,
Vaibhav
got
that
part
and
I
was
heartbroken
(laughs).
It
was
indeed
a
bummer.
It
is
the
only
film
from
my
entire
career
that
I
feel
I
wish
I
had
got.”

Interestingly,
when
Addinath
failed
to
bag
Ranveer
Singh-starrer

Bajirao
Mastani
,
he
did
manage
to
make
his
Bollywood
debut
alongside
the
Bollywood
star
in
Kabir
Khan’s
sports
drama
83.
The
actor
essayed
the
role
of
cricketer
Dilip
Vengsarkar
in
the
film
which
chronicled
India’s
historic
win
in
1983
World
Cup.

Speaking
about
it,
Addinath
said,
“That
was
sheer
coincidence.
I
never
really
thought
about
this.
I
guess
I
was
supposed
to
make
my
Hindi
debut
with
him.
It
was
written
[in
the
stars].”

Sanjay
Leela
Bhansali’s
Bajirao
Mastani
revolved
around
the
romance
between
the
Maratha
general,
Baji
Rao
I
and
Mastani,
princess
of
Bundelkhand.
The
film
was
a
major
box
office
success.
It
even
bagged
seven
National
Awards
including
Best
Direction
(Sanjay
Leela
Bhansali
Bhansali)
and
Best
Supporting
Actress
(
Tanvi
Azmi).
