We’re just as eager as Irrfan Khan is to play the legendary poet SahirLudhianvi in an upcoming biopic. Sources have it that the shooting is going to begin soon and our favourite actor is already prepping hard for his character. Irrfanmakes sure to keep Sahir’s lyrics handy on his I-Pod and doesn’t miss out on reading about the poet’s life whenever he gets time.
The film will trace the love story between Sahir and writer Amrita Pritam. The cherry on the cake being Priyanka Chopra who might play Amrita’s part. Oh and, if Sanjay LeelaBhansali is going to co-produce it, we can already imagine the amount of grandeur to it.
“Ever since I learnt about a film being planned on Sahir and Amrita Pritam’s love story, I wondered why they were not coming to me with it. They did after a month. It’s the role I have been waiting for for a long time. It is well-researched and beautifully written. I can’t wait to immerse myself into the character.” – Irrfan Khan
Well, since we have a long time to wait for the unsurpassed cinematic experience ever, letsrelive through some of the wonders Sir SahirLudhianvi created.
We had a tough time choosing just 10 from the many of his legendary artworks.
If you could pick only Ten Songs of Sahir, which ones would you pick?
