Priyanka Chopra has shared a warm relationship with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He cast her in an item song in Ram Leela and then gave the lead role in Bajirao Mastani along with Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. A few months ago it was reported that Priyanka, who is keeping one foot in Bollywood even as she waltz around Hollywood with the other, had agreed to do SLB’s next Gustakhiyan.
Gustakhiyan was said to be a biopic on renowned Indian writer-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and his relationship with poetess Amrita Pritam. But now, apparently, Priyanka has refused to do the role. Media reports say that Sanjay is in trouble because he has to now look for other options and needless at say, they have to be A-listers.
Though SLB is busy with Padmavati, Gustakhiyan was a subject close to his heart. Padmavati, it is being said, might be delayed further because of the work that remains to be done. Now, if PC does not do his next, will it cause more trouble for the talented director?
