Salman and Alia in Lead Role in Bhansali’s Inshallah; reveals why he rejected Alia Bhatt and the reason that built distance between him and Salman

We always keep high expectations with SLB films. He has now announced his upcoming project which will showcase his favorite hero Salman Khan and a heroine he has never worked with, that is none other than Alia Bhatt.

The upcoming film is named as Inshallah and is the 10th film by one of the most talented filmmaker of Indian cinema, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The two actors took to their tweeter account to express their excitement for the film. The audience will also look forward to the film for such a rare star cast that has never happened in the history of Indian cinema.

The director himself is also enthusiastic about his project. Taking about the star cast SLB says, Salman Khan has given him the nod at the first instance when he approached him for the film. SLB has worked with Salman Khan previously in his film like Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam which was a remarkable hit film. Taking about Alia Bhatt, SLB said, he always wanted to sign Alia for his film but could not make it until this time. He also revealed that Alia had first auditioned for Black when she was refused by Bhansali as he thought she is meant to be a Hindi film heroine, later in her life she was approached by Bhansali but the project did not roll out. Well Bhansali quoted it right! Alia was really meant to rule the Hindi film industry and she is doing it today.

Taking about Salman Khan, Bhansali said they always had a very interesting relationship. He even says they had difference in opinion but that does not restrict him from wishing Salman good luck. He also adds, despite all the differences in opinion, they have been good friends.
