The upcoming movie of Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a biopic based on Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam and is tentatively titled as Gustakhiyan. The filmmakers are searching for the perfect casting and many names were heard about the same like SRK, Irrfan Khan and Abhishek Bachchan who can play Sahir’s character. Well, for playing Amrita Pritam’s character Priyanka Chopra was the only strong choice.
According to the recent reports, we heard that Priyanka Chopra has opted to step out the film because she couldn’t produce the movie. But Madhu Chopra dismissed the reports by saying, “Priyanka was no doubt in talks with Bhansali, but the two couldn’t fit their time schedules to discuss the film. The question of co-producing would have come in only at a later stage. As of now, nothing has gone forward. He can make it on his own, why will he need a co-producer?”
Further, when Madhu was asked whether Priyanka has her reservations about Abhishek playing Sahir, she responded as “She would be the last person to make such suggestions. It is Bhansali’s call. He is the captain of the ship.”
