Priyanka Chopra’s loss is Deepika Padukone’s gain. At least when it comes to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s precious territory. After Priyanka said no to the Sahir Ludhianvi biopic (which was to be directed by debutant Jasmeet Reen), Bhansali’s current favourite Deepika has stepped into her fourth film for Bhansali.
The actress, who has just completed her third historic epic Padmavati with Bhansali, will play the celebrated poetess Amrita Pritam, who was poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi’s muse.
The details of this the fourth collaboration between Bhansali and Padukone are supposed to be announced soon.
