According to latest reports, Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra may return to the big screen. The project is titled Gustakhiyan and happens to be Urdu poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi‘s biopic.
According to Mumbai Mirror, Bhansali recently met the Raees actor last week to handover the script of the biopic to SRK. SLB apparently spoke to Shah Rukh on how he would like to direct the actor in 2018.
A source close to the development was quoted saying, “There is a lot of poetry in the film and SRK has been reading Sahir’s ghazals and nazms.”Though Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t signed Gustakhiyan, a source close to the actor informed the tabloid that he is in love with the script and is keen on reuniting with the Bajirao Mastani filmmaker. We also hear that Bhansali has been spending a lot of time with SRK lately discussing cinema.
And now we hear that the filmmaker wants Priyanka Chopra to be a part of Gustakiyan.
‘Gustakiyan’ will go on floors in 2018. The film will trace Sahir’s relationship with poetess-novelist Amrita Pritam before he went on to court singer actress Sudha Malhotra.
