Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic (he’s producing it) on writer Sahir Ludhianvi has been the talk of the town for a long time now. There were rumours that Taapsee Pannu had been finalized to play Amrita Pritam’s role, but according to latest reports, Deepika Padukone will now portray the character.

Earlier, in an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Bhansali had said, “Sahir saab was one of our most talented poet lyricists, his verses are still inspiring. To bring them back through his love story will be beautiful but also a huge responsibility. It’s a difficult film for the writer-director Jasmeet Reen too so I don’t want to be in a hurry but give it the darza it deserves.

It is to be noted that Deepika and Bhansali share a close relationship and have worked together in three films – ‘Ram Leela’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmaavat’. In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, Bhansali had said, “Deepika is one of the finest artistes I’ve worked with. Such thehrao and such grace! She never surrenders to melodrama even when there is ample temptation to do so. Look at her speech in front of the women before they commit jauhar. Such control, restraint and so much emotive power without tripping over. I was so overwhelmed by how she handled that scene; I gave her a 500-rupee note after she finished the scene. I am sure that the token of my appreciation is more valuable and precious to her than the entire remuneration she got for the film.

We really wish that Deepika and Bhansali work together again.
