Actor Salman Khan and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali are reportedly collaborating together for an upcoming Bollywood film. The actor-director pair have collaborated in films like Khamoshi and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in the past. The actor appeared in Bhansali’s 2007 film Saawariyaa as a cameo appearance.
As per the reports, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is keen on signing for his upcoming project. However, the Dabangg star is highly busy and not finding time for a script narration session with the filmmaker.
A source close to the filmmaker said, “Sanjay has delivered some of his biggest career hits with Salman as his main lead. It’s been 11 years since the two last worked together, which is why he wants to team up with Salman yet again. The project is reportedly very special for Sanjay and he feels no one better than Salman would fit the lead role.”
As per the sources, the film is titled as Inshallah. “Inshallah might be the title of the film that will reunite Sanjay and Salman. He got the title registered last week with IMPAA. And looking at Bhansali’s working style, he might take six to nine months to complete the final draft of the script, and he may start shooting by next year, after Salman is done with his other prior commitments including his next film, Bharat,” says another source.
There has been no official confirmation from Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The rumour mills are buzzing with this latest development. Well, who will be the leading lady then? Your guess is as good as ours.
Salman will be next seen in Bharat directed by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar. It is also reported that the Race 3 actor is in talks with Yash Raj Films’ for the action entertainer Dhoom 4.
On the other hand, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has come fresh out of success with the blockbuster Padmaavat early this year.
