After enough speculations around the casting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s GUSTAKHIYAN, it seems the lead pair of the film is on the verge to get finalized. If the latest reports are to be believed then Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra are considered to portray on-screen the late famous poet & lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and his girlfriend AmritaPritam respectively.
SLB has already zeroed in Irrfan to play the role. In fact it is said that he was always the first choice. While in the case of leading lady, Deepika Padukone, who has of late become Bhansali favourite, was in news to be paired opposite Irrfan, considering their chemistry in PIKU. But now it seems Priyanka will take the cake. And there is a reason behind it, as PeeCee will not only star in the film but she will also co-produce the film along with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali under her banner Purple Pebble Pictures.
However, no official announcement has been made yet by SLB or Irrfan or Priyanka. But going with the industry buzz it looks like Irrfan and Priyanka are mostly doing the film.
Till then we wait for the announcement to happen. Watch this space for more updates.
