If reports are to be believed then Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who has been planning a love story titled ‘Gustakhiyan’ based on renowned poet Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam, is re-considering his choice for the role of the female lead in the movie.
While Irrfan Khan had been roped in long time ago to play the poet, Bhansali wanted Priyanka to play Amrita back then. However, given the tight schedule of Piggy Chops and Bhansali’s affection towards his ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress Deepika Padukone, one hears that the leggy lass would now be stepping into the shoes of Amrita Pritam to romance Khan on-screen.
It would indeed be interesting to see how this Jodi performs on-screen since their last venture together ‘Piku’ was loved by all and their unconventional pairing too had received a lot of appreciation. Also, the last time Irrfan and Priyanka paired up for a movie (Saat Khoon Maaf) it turned out to be a dud at the box office.
