It Is Confirmed, Abhishek Bachchan To Play Poet Sahir Ludhianvi

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project tentatively called ‘Gustakhiyan’ is much in talks even before its inception. Sometimes we hear about Priyanka been signed in for the movie, sometimes about her not being a part of it as an actor but as a producer and sometimes the speculations around who would be playing the male lead in the movie. But today a news has come which has kept at least one rumour to rest. Now the role of Sahir Ludhianvi in the movie ‘Gustakhiyan’ will be played by Abhishek Bachchan. Yes, the actor has finally given a nod to the movie. In the movie, we will see Abhishek in the role of the legendary poet, who is remembered for his songs like ‘Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar Hoon’, ‘Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein’ and others. The reports also say that Abhishek has shed around 12 kgs of weight to look lean and fit in the role. He is also remembering his poems and lyrics of the songs in order to prepare for the role. He has also been listening to all the songs the poet has penned and reading his work and books on him. The movie is expected to go on floors soon, probably after, Sanjay winds up ‘Padmavati’.
