There were reports doing rounds only recently that Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu maybe been taken on-board for the ace filmmaker; Sanjay Leela Bhansali's biopic project, on the famous poet, Sudhir Ludhianvi and his love interest and famous writer Amrita Pritam.


However; if the industry rumor mill is anything to go by, it is now being reported that Pannu has been replaced by Deepika Padukone, to essay the role of Amrita Pritam, who had an affection for the poet, lyricist, and author Sahir Ludhianvi.


According to certain sources; Bhansali is very keen on collaborating with Padukone after their super successful collaborations in RamLeela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmavat! Also, it is being said that Deepika has already been offered the part and is seriously considering the film, however, only on one condition!


It is being alleged that Deepika has agreed to be a part of the film only if the film is titled on both the protagonists, instead of just Ludhianvi! And what's more, is that Bhansali has agreed to the condition!


Speaking about the film; Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who will be producing the film said," Sahir saab was one of our most talented poet lyricists; his verses are still inspiring. To bring them back through his love story will be beautiful but also a huge responsibility. It's a difficult film for the writer-director Jasmeet Reen too, so I don't want to be in a hurry but give it the darza it deserves."


On the professional front; Deepika has been missing from action for almost a year now, but has already started working on Meghna Gulzar's next, a biopic of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. The film; titled Chhapaak, features Vikrant Massey as the male lead and is all set to hit the screens on the 10th of January, 2020.
