Back in 2019, Sanjay Leela Bhansali left everyone excited after announcing Inshallah starring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt in the lead. A story of a young woman and an older man to be portrayed by the superstars, but the film fizzled out due to some creative differences. As per media reports, there were some creative differences between Salman and Bhansali that led to the film being shelved. Inshallah was supposed to mark the reunion of Salman and Sanjay after 2 decades, they worked together in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Sawariya and Khamoshi.
Now as per reports in News18, the filmmaker has decided to revive this shelved project by roping in Hrithik Roshan. The report states that while he has finished working on Gangubai Kathiawadi starring Alia, he can now focus on another project. The filmmaker feels Hrithik and Alia totally fit the bill as per the storyline. The Super 30 actor who had several meetings with SLB has liked the script he has requested for certain alterations. Bhansali is said to be working on the script accordingly.
The said publication states, “Bhansali is currently working on Heera Mandi, a web series which has been in the making for some time now. Directed by Vibhu Puri, it is going to go on floors soon. On the other hand, the filmmaker is also working on Inshallah since he has finished Gangubai Kathiawadi and can focus on a new project. Since it is a story of the mature romance between a young girl and a much older guy, he feels Roshan and Bhatt would make a good pair. The actor has had several meetings with the filmmaker. He has liked the script but has requested for certain modifications. Bhansali is also reworking on the script.”
The film is likely to go on floors in 2022’s second half; currently, Hrithik is reported to be busy with Vikram Vedha remake and Fighter, he will dive into the filming of Inshallah, post these projects. ALSO READ: Sanjay Leela Bhansali To Direct The First Episode Of His Dream Project, Heera Mandi
