Irrfan Khan's connection with Sahir Ludhianvi
Irrfan Khan's name has often cropped up to play poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi in a biopic. The actor has evinced an interest to essay the role, but the film keeps slipping away from him. While Irrfan was first rumoured to play the role in the film produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, buzz is now Abhishek Bachchan might step in.
Irrfan has no qualms in admitting if he does not figure in the biopic, he will depict Ludhianvi in another film — in some way or the other. But four years since the project was announced, the film has yet to take-off.
