Sanjay Leela Bhansali is planning to make another historical hit. It is said that after giving us ‘Padmaavat’ he has picked one more story that has been famous since the time. He is now doing a film on Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Ludhianvi was a very famous poet and lyricist of his time. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has signed Abhishek Bachchan for the role of Sahir Ludhianvi but for Amrita Pritam’s role, he is still struggling. Though it was said that Taapsee Pannu will do the role of Amrita Pritam, it is now changed. Sanjay has offered Deepika Padukone the role and Deepika took the offer really seriously.
Deepika put forward one condition to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It is no surprise that Deepika Padukone is a feminist and believes in equal rights for women. Deepika Padukone has asked Sanjay Leela Bhansali to change the title of the film and name it after both of the writers. Sanjay took the suggestion very seriously and agreed on changing the title of the film. Amrita Pritam is an important role in the story. She was a writer who had an affection for Sahir Ludhianvi and was an important part of his life.
This is not the first time that they both are working together. They both have given two mega-hits namely ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems to be very comfortable with Deepika Padukone when it comes to a serious role. And because she has worked with the Sanjay Leela Bhansali so much, he has confidence in the actress for the role.
Deepika Padukone recently shared the first look of her new film ‘Chhapaak’
‘Chhapak’ is a true story based on Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor. Deepika is very excited about the release of the film. She captioned the picture saying “A character that will stay with me forever…Malti” which shows how important this role was to her. The film is all set for the release on January 10, 2020.
