Earlier, there were reports that Sanjay Leela Bhansali had approached actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra to play Amrita Pritam in the Sahir Ludhianvi biopic, but the latest name doing the rounds is that of Bhumi Pednekar.
Putting all rumours to rest, Bhumi Pednekar has released a statement saying that these rumours aren’t to be believed. There have been several rumours doing the round that Bhumi will be starring in GUSTAKHIYAN and Mr. Bhansali’s next directorial venture. However there is no truth to this, as she has not been offered either of these films. Her next will be MANMARZIYAAN along with Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmaan Khurana.
