It seems like Sanjay Leela Bhansali likes to keep the Indian audiences in suspense before the release of any of his movies. It had been earlier reported that Taapsee Pannu will be playing the female lead in the upcoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali film based on the life of Sahir Ludhianvi. But later on, certain sources revealed that Deepika Padukone will be replacing Taapsee Pannu in the upcoming biopic where she would be portraying the role of the famous author Amrita Pritam. But now, it seems like both the news are a big hoax. In reality, none of the two actresses have been roped in for playing the role of Amrita Pritam in the movie. 

Bhansali still hasn't confirmed the female lead of his movie. However, this has been confirmed that Abhishek Bachchan will be portraying the role of the famous poet, lyricist and author Sahir Ludhianvi in the film. Now, all eyes have been turned towards Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is the producer of the upcoming film as to which actress would he finally select who will be portraying the role of the legendary author Amrita Pritam.

On the work front, Deepika Padukone will be seen in the upcoming movie Chhapaak co - starring Vikrant Massey which has been directed by Meghna Gulzar. On the other hand, Taapsee Pannu was last seen in the movie Badla opposite Amitabh Bachchan which has been immensely loved by the Indian audiences as well as the film critics.

AB is a flop actor. He should be replaced. Pannu is incompetant to play complex roles so they should find someone else.

The original cast was Priyanka and Irfan! I hope Irfan gets better and they can do this movie together.

Taapsee or Deepika, both would be good with Abhishek.
Taapsee and Abhishek look great together.
Deepika and Abhishek will be a fresh pairing, something we can look forward to.
Depending on the character of Amrita (if she is care-free & boisterous or quiet & demur), the directors should cast accordingly. Taapsee has loads of raw energy and is natural on screen. Deepika has quite strength and her silence, long pauses can be meaningful.
Really looking forward to this movie.

Hope this means that the cast is the same as original rumors, Priyanka Chopra and AB JR.

I’m so happy for Abhishek !! All the best

Parineeti looks the most like Amrita Pritamji, but I don't know if she could do justice to the role.

leave these two out of it!
