Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s dream project ‘Inshallah‘ with Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan had to be kept on hold for some reason.
Bhansali then went on to make Gangubai Kathiawadi but ‘Inshalla‘ still remains in his mind.
A source says “It is a beautiful simple timeless love story. Sanjay still wants to make it with Alia and a different leading man.”
The hero required for the male lead must be in the 50-plus and also a big star. Therefore, Shah Rukh Khan is the obvious choice.
“But Shah Rukh Khan has already done a film – Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ — with Alia. So the novelty of seeing the two generation-challenged superstars exchanging emotions is gone. But who knows! It may be SRK only. The important thing is to make Inshallah exactly the way SLB had envisaged it. And he will,” ended the source.
