November 01, 2013 15:53 IST

Farhan AkhtarFilmmaker-singer-actor Farhan Akhtar will soon play writer-poet Sahir Ludhianvi in a forthcoming biopic. Debutant director Jasmeet Reen will direct it.

Ashi Dua, who produced Bombay Talkies, will produce the film titled Sahir.

While the details are still to be worked out, a source close to the project says, "Sahir

will focus on the poetry and the love between Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam. They shared a stormy relationship that lasted for decades. Farhan is the natural choice for the role since his father is a poet and Farhan himself writes poetry."

We also hear Farhan will be singing some of Sahir’s immortal lines.
