Vastavam web:  Irrfan Khan’s name has often cropped up to play eminent poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi in a biopic.The actor says he wants to essay the role but the film keeps slipping away from him.While Irrfan was first rumoured to play the role in a film backed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, reports say Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan have also been approached for the same project.The actor, 50, says he grew up reading Ludhianvi and his works have a huge contribution in his life.
“He is a part of me. He has given me a lot and is an extremely important person to me.Irrfan said Ludhianvi’s understanding of love was entirely different from others.”I’ve been fascinated with him since childhood. Everyone was writing romantic songs, ‘I’ll die for you, build Taj Mahal for you’ but he talked about something else entirely, which was equally romantic,” he said.
