Abhishek Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu to be back for Bhansali’s Sahir Ludhianvi biopic?
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been toying with the idea of making a biopic on legendary lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. Shah Rukh Khan, Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and many more were considered to play the role of the famous lyricist and his muse poetess Amrita Pritam.
As reported by a source to Mumbai Mirror, “Both Abhishek and Taapsee have loved the story and are looking forward to collaborating again. However, they are yet to sign on the dotted line. Once the formalities are locked, they will begin prep.”
A couple of days back Sanjay Leela Bhansali in an interview to Mumbai Mirror had said that Sahir Saab was one of the talented lyricists and to bring back the love story of Sahir and Amrita is a huge responsibility. It is a difficult film and therefore we should not hurry but give it the darza it deserves.
If the rumours do come true then this will be Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s second outing together after ‘Manmarziyaan’ and their first with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
