Abhishek Bachchan Begins Prepping To Play Sahir Ludhianvi

Abhishek Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan is  in no  hurry to sign new films. He has in facts ceased to consider any  other offer for now  , and with good reason.

He will  now focus entirely and unconditionally on the character of the poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhanvi who re-wrote many   of the rules of filmy poetry.Abhishek has been locked  in to play the poet in the  bio-pic  to be directed by  debutant Jasmeet Reen.

Says a source, “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.”

It looks  like this will be Abhishek’s  epic moment on celluloid.

Interestingly Abhishek is helping his dad prepare  for his role  of  a football coach while Dad Amitabh Bachchan will provide tips on Sahir Ludhianvi to  Junior Bachchan.
