Fawad Khan and Parineeti Chopra would apparently share screen space for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film. It is said to be a biopic on Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam. Prior, Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra’s names were doing the rounds for the roles.
As per a Filmfare report, because of lack of Priyanka’s dates, the late buzz is that Parineeti and Fawad have been approached for these roles. Irrfan won’t not star in the film as Sahir’s character will age from his mid 20s to his 40s and 50s and the creators feel that Irrfan Khan will not suit the younger version.
A couple days back, it was accounted for that Bhumi Pednekar was approached for the female lead, however now Parineeti’s name appears to have found takers. “Bhumi is new, talented and not over-exposed. She’s busy with ‘Manmarziyan’ as of now, but she has met officials from Bhansali’s team. Let’s hope for the best,” SpotboyE had cited a source as saying. Before Bhansali, the film was being delivered by Ashi Dua, who was attempting to cast actors for essential characters like artist lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi, essayist Amrita Pritam and writer Imroz.
Aside from Bhumi and Priyanka, Deepika Padukone’s and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s names were additionally doing the rounds. “Gustakhiyan” is the third film of Bhansali that Kareena has apparently rejects after “Bajirao Mastani” and “Goliyon Ki Rasleela – Ram Leela.”
Meanwhile, fans are eagerly waiting for the lead actors to be finalised for “Gustakhiyan.” Though Fawad and Parineeti might be roped in, people have to wait for the official announcement. Parineeti is currently busy with Yash Raj Films’ “Meri Pyaari Bindu” opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, while Fawad will next be seen in Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.” – CINEWS
