MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt is going to debut in much sought-after filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Bollywood superstar Salman Khan
The film is titled as ‘Inshallah’, tweeted Alia Bhatt.
‘Inshallah’ will be her first film with Bhansali and also with Salman. Both Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan tweeted the big news about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah on Tuesday.
Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan will co-star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new film Inshallah and the actress simply can’t wait to join the sets. “Dream with your eyes wide open they say and I did. Sanjay sir and Salman Khan are magical together and I can’t wait to join them on this beautiful journey called Inshallah,” tweeted an overwhelmed Alia Bhatt. Last night, she was spotted outside Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office in Juhu and now we know why.
In another tweet, Alia Bhatt added that the first time she stepped in to Mr Bhansali’s office with a heart full of dreams was when she was much younger: “I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It’s been a long wait.”
Meanwhile, Salman Khan can’t wait to work with the director again and is also equally excited about working with Alia Bhatt for the first time. Sharing the big news on Twitter, Salman Khan wrote: “It’s been 20 years but I am glad Sanjay and I are finally back in his next film, Inshallah. Looking forward to working with Alia and inshallah, we will all be blessed on this journey.”
Salman Khan starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s debut film as a director Khamoshi: The Musical and then famously co-starred with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in 1999 release Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. While that was Salman’s last film with the director, Salman also made a cameo in 2007’s Saawariya. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s last three films – Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and “Padmaavat” – were headlined by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
