Shah Rukh Khan to Do Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film on Sahir Ludhianvi
There are so many speculations about Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s long pending film which is supposedly a biopic of poet Sahir Ludhianvi. And time to time the report also comes that director Bhansali is keen to cast Shah Rukh Khan for this project. But it’s been a long time that neither the Raees actor nor the Bajirao Mastani director openly said anything about the development of the biopic. Little late but Shah Rukh finally opened up on this issue.
Well, Shah Rukh Khan was present at a media interaction for his upcoming film Raees and on being asked about the Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, the 51 year old actor said, “I really like the story yaar! It was offered to me, but 3-4 years (ago), it was it Red Chillies actually and then Bhansali took it over and I’m very happy that he has taken it over. Jasmeet is the writer. I really liked the story but we’ve not confirmed it. Neither has Sanjay.”
SRK went further and revealed, “Sanjay is supposed to meet me now. I think I’ll meet him after Raees. I think 27th or 28th I’ll meet him, if he’s free from Padmavati. He has love stories, one of them is Sahir Ludhianvi’s. I heard it 2 years ago when it wasn’t with Sanjay. It’s not confirmed.”
While SRK is currently gearing up for Raees promotions , SLB is busy filming his next magnum opus Padmavati. Now let’s see what is going to be the outcome when Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shah Rukh Khan meets as it carries a good much fate of Sahir Ludhianvi biopic.
