Following the success of Manmarziyaan Starring Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu reunite for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s long-gestating Sahir Ludhianvi biopic.
According to reports Bhansali has centred the film on the unrequited love story between Ludhianvi and fellow poet Amrita Pritam.
Curiously, a pivotal scene in Manmarziyaan featured lines from Pritam’s famous poem ‘Main Tenu Phir Milangi’, and the film itself was interpreted to be modelled on the love triangle between Ludhianvi, Pritam and the painter Imroz.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is expected to commence work on the Sahir Ludhianvi biopic after finishing Inshallah, which goes on floors in September this year.
Meanwhile Taapsee Pannu’s latest release was Badla, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, the murder mystery film has become a box-office hit. Taapsee is currently working on Saand Ki Aankh.
