Sanjay Leela Bhansali won’t be directing Priyanka Chopra-starrer ‘Gustakhiyan’

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently busy with the shooting of his magnum opus ‘Padmavati’. The film starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor is slated to release on November 17, 2017, and before its release the talks of the director’s next are doing the rounds.

There are actually three films that are touted to be SLB’s next directorial after ‘Padmavati’, ‘Gustakhiyan’ which reportedly stars Priyanka Chopra, a film with Shah Rukh Khan and a film with Salman Khan. Recently, Bollywood Life had an interview with writers Siddharth and Garima who have worked with SLB earlier in ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The two revealed that ‘Gustakhiyan’ won’t be the film that SLB will be directing, but they are working on a script that will be directed by the filmmaker.

Talking about them collaborating with SLB for ‘Gustakhiyan’, they said, “No, it’s not ‘Gustakhiyan’. I think he’s producing that movie but not directing, I am not sure about that. But the script that we both are writing will be directed by him surely.”

Well, talking about ‘Gustakhiyan’, the film has been in the pipeline for the past couple of years. Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra will be playing the female lead in the movie, and Abhishek Bachchan will be seen as the male lead. But, we are still waiting for an official announcement.
