Shah Rukh Khan is in an experimental frame of mind. After playing his own fan in Fan and a real life bootlegger in Prohibition-hit Gujarat in the forthcoming Raees, Shah Rukh is all set to play the legendary poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi in a film to be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Sources say the filmmaker and actor — who together created the epic blockbuster Devdas in the past — are all set to work together again on the biopic, titled Gustakhiyan.  This time Bhansali will only produce the film. A  new director Jasmeet Reen is being roped in to do the needful.
