The biopic of Sahir Ludhianvi is getting revived on the big screen by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. We guess we will love the untold love saga of Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam on screen. The rumors were heard that Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan will be playing the lead role in this biopic.
Well, the recent development has put all these rumors to rest as neither Priyanka Chopra nor Irrfan Khan is going to be in the film. Though we were quite excited to see Priyanka and Irrfan together in the movie. But Sanjay Leela Bhansali didn’t leave us with disappointment as the actors who have roped in are surely going to the rock on screen with their real life chemistry.
Yes, we are talking about Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who are reuniting after 7 years, on-screen. This sweet real-life couple was seen together in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’.
According to the reports, Abhishek Bachchan will be playing Sahir’s character, who is also known for penning some heart touching songs like ‘Maang Ke Sath Tumhara’ and ‘Jinhe Naaz Hai Hind Par’ and we find him already preparing for his role. Also, it is being said that this film will mark the directorial debut of Jasmeet Reen. The movie is expected to go on floor the next year and as it Bhansali we have great expectations from him. As we have already enjoyed his previous movies ‘Devdas’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Black’ to name a few.
This biopic will be the first movie of Abhishek Bachchan with Bhansali, while Ash has already worked with him in some of the most loved movies like ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Apparently, this is for the third time Abhishek will be working for a movie which is based on a real-life character. Previously, he had worked for ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ with Deepika Padukone and ‘Guru’ which was loosely based on the life of businessman Dhirubhai Ambani.
