Speculation about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film, a biopic on poet Sahir Ludhianvi, have started again after it was reported yesterday that Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu could be taking the project forward.
However, it has now been reported that while Bachchan may lead the project, Deepika Padukone may step into the role of poet Amrita Pritam, replacing Pannu. India Today reports that Padukone is seriously considering the role.
The report further adds that Padukone’s only condition is that the biopic should be named after both poets, rather than just Ludhianvi. Bhansali is said to be okay with that.
Padukone is currently working on her upcoming release ‘Chhapaak’. If she does take on Bhansali’s film, it won’t be until after the completion of ‘Chhapaak’ will the actress decide on her next move.
