Just In: Irrfan Khan issues clarification on recent series of news around Gustakhiyan!
Recently, there has been an avalanche of reports on Irrfan Khan opting out of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next production Gustakhiyan opposite Priyanka Chopra. But now the actor has broken his silence over whether or not he is a part of the much talked about project. Below is his clarification over these speculations.
The talented actor says, "I'm not sure where these rumours are coming from. I was approached for the film almost two years back but since then there's been no conversation on dates, so how does the question of me not having time or walking out of the film even come from? I think that's a mystery I would first like to solve that who are these well-wishers who are speaking my mind without me even being aware."
Gustakhiyan, which is a film based the real-life romance between noted poet and author Amrita Pritam and Sahir Ludhianvi, will be made under Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions. The project might be helmed by a debutant director. Before Irrfan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s name was also being thrown in the fray for the role of the Urdu poet Sahir Ludhianvi.
