Deepika Padukone and not Priyanka Chopra to star opposite Irrfan Khan in his next?

The two leading ladies of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani,’ Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are running high with the spectacular success of the film. Both the ladies, who are now considered to be the most successful actresses of B-town, are supposedly on every filmmakers list and especially Sanjay Leela Bhansali. During the filming of ‘Bajiaro Mastani,’ PC and DP have established a rapport with the ace director. So much that even in his upcoming project it’s these two ladies who are the top contenders to bag a role.

SLB is next coming up with a film titled ‘Gustakhiyan,’ for which Irrfan Khan is set to play the titular role. The film is based on the life of the legendary poet Sahir Ludhianvi and his romantic relationship with author Amrita Pritam. Rumours were making the rounds that SLB is keen on roping in now Hollywood star Priyanka Chopra to play the love interest of Irrfan. But, there was not confirmation on this. Now, the recent reports suggest that it’s not PC but Deepika who would play the role of Amrita Pritam. Deepika and Irrfan had paired up for 2015’s blockbuster film ‘Piku .’ Even though this film brought critical as well as commercial success to the star, we hardly got a chance to see Irrfan and Deepika’s relationship flourishing in the film. Well, here’s the chance. Deepika and Irrfan would get a chance to romance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next provided DP gets signed for it.

Well, let’s see who actually bags the role of Amrita Pritam in Sahir Ludhianvi’s biopic or it would be some third actress who would take away this role from the two. Wait and Watch!
