Salman out, Hrithik in: Sanjay Leela Bhansali to revive Inshallah
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is set to restart his much-anticipated project ‘Inshallah’ with a fresh pair
Celebrated Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to revive his ambitious project ‘Inshallah’ with a fresh celebrity pair. Two years ago, Bhansali announced his big-budget film with superstars Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. However, in August 2019, the much-awaited project was indefinitely shelved due to alleged clashes between SLB and Salman Khan.
“When he (Bhansali) came to me with this film, I liked it and we decided to work together again. One thing I can say is that Sanjay won’t do gaddaari (cheating) with his film. I want him to make the film he wants to make. Nothing changes between us as friends and I’m sure nothing has changed in Sanjay’s heart for me,” Salman Khan had said during an interview.
Now, after almost two years, Bhansali is reportedly restarting work on ‘Inshallah’ with the Greek God of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan, and stunning Alia Bhatt in the lead.
After the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor opted out of the film due to unknown reasons, the maverick filmmaker decided to sign the ‘Super 30’ actor for the mega project opposite Alia Bhatt. As per media reports, Hrithik Roshan has also expressed his interest in Bhansali’s film and will be signing the project in the coming time.
The plot of the film is based on a love story set between an older guy and a young girl. Significantly, Bhansali is certain that Hrithik Roshan will be perfect with Alia Bhatt in the lead roles in ‘Inshallah’.
Meanwhile, the ‘Highway’ actress is currently shooting for the upcoming colossal ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. According to SLB’s banner Bhansali Productions, the film is set to hit the big screens this year.
At the same time, Hrithik Roshan is undergoing intense training for his role as a gangster in the remake of 2017’s Telugu action-thriller ‘Vikram Vedha’. In January 2021, he also announced the teaser of his next film ‘Fighter’ with Deepika Padukone in the female lead. The action film is directed by Siddharth Anand and is scheduled to hit the theatres on September 30, 2022.
On the other hand, Salman Khan also treated his fans with the poster of his much-anticipated film ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’. The film is set to release on the occasion of Eid this year in both theatres and OTT platforms.
