Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra were rumored to have come together for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gustakhiyan’. The movie is based on the love story of the Urdu poet Sahir Ludhianvi and poet-novelist Amrita Pritam. But seems like Abhishek won’t be a part of this much-talked about the film and apparently, the credit goes to Priyanka. The Diva wants her male lead to be someone who hasn’t been a part of a period film before.
As per sources, “Priyanka wants an actor who hasn’t done a period film before. Abhishek has done Umrao Jaan (2006) with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Since PC is co-producing the film with Bhansali, she expressed her reservations to SLB and they are still on the lookout for someone to play the character of Sahir.”
The film was said to go on floors by the year end. But from the looks of it, ‘Gustakhiyan’ is not going on-floors this year, and that’s because of Priyanka’s commitments in the West. Priyanka is busy shooting for Hollywood projects like ‘A Kid Like Jake’ and a rom-com ‘Isn’t It Romantic’, besides the season 3 of ‘Quantico’.
Priyanka and Abhishek were last seen in ‘Dostana’.
