With rumours that Abhishek Bachchan will be seen playing poet Sahir Ludhianvi in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s production, reportedly titled ‘Gustaakhiyaan’, it seems the actor has already begun prep for the role.
“Abhishek has begun preparing for his Sahir bio-pic . He will begin rigorous interaction with Sanjay Bhansali after Padmavati releases. But his groundwork on Sahir has begun in right earnest. He is regularly listening to the immortal repertoire of Sahir’s lyrics from Guru Dutt’s Pyasa to Yash Chopra’s Trishul. Abhishek’s father had the good fortune to interact with Sahir when he worked in Kabhi Kabhie and Trishul. So Bachchan Saab is able to provide plenty of invaluable inputs to Abhishek’s preparation,” said a source, according to SKJ.
Directed by Jasmeet Reen, the film will look into Ludhianvi’s romance with Amrita Pritam. Many names have fallen into the mix as to who would play the latter and it’s yet to be confirmed.
