Priyanka Chopra Out, Aishwarya –Abhishek To Re-Unite For Sahir Ludhianvi Bio-pic

With Priyanka Chopra opting out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s bio-pic on the love that bonded poet Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam , it is time for the project to get a quick casting re-shuffle.

Without wasting time SLB has  gone to his other favourite, in fact his most favourite actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play AmritaPritam  to Abhishek Bachchan’s Sahir Ludhianvi.

The Sahir-Amrita bio-pic to be directed by debutante Jasmeet Reen will go on the floors early next year.

 

This would be the 9th film to bring Aishwarya and Abhishek together. The first time they co-starred was  in Rohan Sippy’s  Kuch Na Kaho in 2003 . We saw the real-life couple together last in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan in 2010.

Bhansali and Aishwarya have come together in Hum…Dil De ChukeSanam, Devdas and Guzaarish.

Aishwarya was supposed to do the item song in Ram Leela but opted out because lyrics of the song were originally Thappad se nahin pyarse darr lagta hai , Salman  Khan’s signature line in Dabangg.

Ironically Priyanka had replaced  Aishwarya for the item song in Ram Leela.
