FINALLY! Shah Rukh Khan BREAKS SILENCE on doing Sahir Ludhianvi's biopic
A lot had been said and written about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next (after Padmavati) film which is supposed to be a biopic of poet Sahir Ludhianvi. Speculations were rife that SLB wants to cast Shah Rukh Khan in this project but neither Bhansali nor anybody else had spoken anything about it till now.
Now, Shah Rukh Khan has finally opened up on the said project during a media interaction for his upcoming film Raees. When asked whether he is talks about the SLB film he said, “I really like the story yaar! It was offered to me, but 3-4 years (ago), it was it Red Chillies actually and then Bhansali took it over and I’m very happy that he has taken it over. Jasmeet is the writer. I really liked the story but we’ve not confirmed it. Neither has Sanjay.”
So is he going to meet SLB sometime soon to discuss the film? SRK confirms, “Sanjay is supposed to meet me now. I think I’ll meet him after Raees. I think 27th or 28th I’ll meet him, if he’s free from Padmavati. He has love stories, one of them is Sahir Ludhianvi’s. I heard it 2 years ago when it wasn’t with Sanjay. It’s not confirmed.”
