Alia Bhatt To Play Amrita Pritam In Bhansali’s Sahir Bio-Pic?

It is meant to be  a tribute to the poetry and  life  and love of Sahir Ludhianvi.

While producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali has roped  in Abhishek Bachchan to play Sahir, the equally pivotal part of  Sahir’s long-standing companion and soul-mate  Amrita Pritam has gone  to the hottest female superstar  in Bollywood .

Alia  Bhatt who has been  climbing from strength to strength during the past two years isSanjay Leela Bhansali’s “most prominent choice” for Amrita Pritam’s  role.

Says Sanjay Bhansali, “I find Alia’s growth as  an actress to be truly fascinating. She always exuded a certain poise and  confidence that are  very rare for actors  her age.  She is now at a stage when her career decisions would determine  whether she  joins the hall of all-time greats.It’d be most interesting to work with Alia.’

 Interestingly Alias was all of 12 when she had  auditioned for Sanjay Leela Bhansali HamariJaan Ho Tum opposite Udit Narayan’s son Aditya. That film never took off. But Alia’s career certainly did.
