But now when it's confirmed that Alia is the heroine, fans have even started speculating over the film's story and talking about the 30-year age gap between the lead actors. Frankly, the Internet can’t stop gushing about the new pairing. Twitteratis have flooded the social networking sites with throwback pictures of Salman, Alia and Sanjay, giving us a major dose of nostalgia.
We get you a few of those posts:
A fan shared a throwback picture of Salman and Alia and captioned it, “Who would’ve thought they will work together as a lead pair. #Inshallah.”
Another fan shared a throwback picture of Salman with Sanjay Leela Bhansali from the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, it was captioned: "Sanjay Leela Bhansali made one of the biggest budgeted grand films like #BajiraoMastani & #Padmaavat with actor like RanveerSingh then imagine what will he do with THE SALMAN KHAN".
This flick ought to be 2020's most-awaited movie. You simply can't question SLB's potential. #Inshallah

Salman welcomed Alia on board Inshallah and wrote, “It’s been 20 years but I am glad Sanjay and I are finally back in his next film, Inshallah. Looking forward to work with Alia and inshallah we will all be blessed on this journey.” Alia, on her part, responded, “Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can’t wait to join them on this beautiful journey called Inshallah.” She also tweeted, “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.”
At least we can't wait for Inshallah, can you?
