Fawad Khan to share screen space with Irrfan Khan now?
A year back there were speculations doing the rounds that cynosure of all eyes Fawad Khan, who is currently basking in the glory of KAPOOR & SONS, might play the role of yesteryear lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s backed project GUSTAKHIYAAN. And Sonakshi Sinha might romance Fawad Khan in the film. However, it stood only as speculations.

At the advent of this year, it was revealed that Irrfan Khan has been signed on to play the role of late legendary poet and lyricist in the biopic. And just when we assured that Fawad Khan is no where related to the project, the latest buzz in the trade suggests that the heartthrob has been approached for the film.. While the details are not known, perhaps, Fawad will play a supporting character. If Fawad bags the film, then it will certainly grab more eyeballs, who has a fantastic following.
Moreover, after the success of KAPOOR & SONS, the above mentioned film will further underpin his position in Bollywood. If it happens, it would be great for Fawad Khan to share the screen space with a talented actor like Irrfan Khan.
Though rumours are rife that either Deepika or Priyanka is set to play the role of Amrita Pritam (who is said to share a complicated relationship with Sahir), the leading lady is yet to be finalized.
Directed by debutant Gurmeet Dhodi, GUSTAKHIYAAN is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
