Set aside all the rumours, hearsay , and conjecture. It is finally Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra as the legendary poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and his muse the bohemian author Amrita Pritam.
Completely discarding recent stories that claim that Irrfan is no longer able to give dates to the project a source close to Gustakhiyan says, “Irrfan has been on board from the start. He was our first choice and he remains our only choice to play Sahir Ludhianvi.”
Priyanka Chopra too was all but finalized for some time now. Apparently producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali had made up his mind to cast her during the making of Bajirao Mastani.
“With her smouldering sensuality,outgoing personality and husky diction Priyanka is the perfect fit for AmritaPritam,” says s source
Gustakhiyan will be directed by debutante Jasmeet Reen.
