Sanjay Leela Bhansali Comes Clean About His Past Differences With Salman Khan
Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt treated their fans with an exciting piece of news recently. Salman and Alia announced their collaboration in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah, and their fans cannot contain their excitement. Clearing their past differences, SLB and Salman Khan will be reuniting after 20 years of their last blockbuster, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, the filmmaker opened up about his issues with the actor.

Spilling the beans over how Salman Khan and him reunited, he said, “It was a beautiful, breezy evening. We were sitting in the lawn of his home, and as soon as the narration ended, Salman turned to me, saying, “When do we start?” It took me back to my two-and-a-half-hour narration of Khamoshi: The Musical. We were in his bedroom then and he kept looking at himself in the mirror. I was wondering if he’d even heard me, but when I finished, he told me exactly what he’d liked in the story, making me realise that he is very sharp, and one shouldn’t presume anything with him.”

Talking about the differences, he said, “We’ve had a few issues in the past but whenever we met, even sporadically, we took up from where we’d left off without dwelling on the past and the difference of opinions we might have had. My fondness for him is pure, and Salman, once he offers his friendship, even if you don’t meet or talk in five years, he’s there waiting for you. He’s never told me that he’s liked a shot, a song or a film I’ve made, but has expressed his appreciation for my work to others when he didn’t need to.”

When Bhansali was asked if he notices a change in Salman over the years, he told the leading tabloid, “Today he’s a mega-star, totally inaccessible, with the cult status of Rajinikanth sir, yet deep down he’s still a simple guy with a pure heart and a noble soul. After Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Saawariya, he and I needed to make one film together, if not 10 more. I’m glad Inshallah happened. From my understanding of him, as a man, an actor and a superstar, I know this is the right film for us to come together. I’ve been working on it for the last year-and-a-half, starting three months before Padmaavat released, to take my mind off things that were happening at the time. I wrote and reworked till I felt it was ready, then, went to him. It’s my 10th film, I want it to be my best.”
