The last one heard about the project was that it was apparently shelved.
That’s not true!
The film is very much on. It will be go on the floors some time in 2023. Says Sanjay Bhansali, “Sahir will be made only with Abhishek, and no other actor.”
It may be mentioned here that Priyanka Chopra was offered the role of Sahir Ludhianvi’s muse Amrita Pritam. She had suggested any other actor other than Abhishek Bachchan to play the eponymous part.
Bhansali politely but firmly stood by his casting of Sahir.
