Abhishek preps to play Sahir

Deccanchronicle
Saturday, November 11, 2017

Abhishek Bachchan is in no hurry to sign new films. In fact, he has ceased to consider any other offer for now — and with good reason.

He will now focus entirely, and unconditionally on the character of the powt-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi, who rewrote many rules of filmy poetry. Abhishek has been locked in to play the poet in his biopic being directed by debutant Jasmeet Reen.

Says a source, "Abhishek has begun preparing for the Sahir biopic. He will begin rigorous interaction with Sanjay Leela Bhansali too, after Padmavati releases. But his groundwork on Sahir has begun in the right earnest. He is regularly listening to the immortal repertoire of Sahir's lyrics from Guru Dutt's Pyasa to Yash Chopra's Trishul."
