Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ambitious project, Gustakhiyan, which is based on the real lives of Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam has been in the news for a while now. Earlier, news was that Priyanka Chopra Jonas will be playing the lead in the film. Later, when she backed out, Chopra Jonas decided that she would co-produce the film, along with Bhansali. Written and to be directed by Jasmeet Reen, the makers have now approached Taapsee Pannu to play the leading lady, while Abhishek Bachchan has been offered the role of Ludhianvi.
A source told a leading daily, “Both Abhishek and Taapsee have loved the story and are looking forward to collaborate again. However, they are yet to sign on the dotted line. Once the formalities are locked, they will begin prep.” A while ago, we had told you that the Mulk actress had been spotted outside Bhansali’s office and now it all makes sense.
Meanwhile, Bhansali’s next directorial will be Inshallah, starring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt in leading roles.
