One of the most anticipated films and the prestigious project for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah is all set to revive now. Earlier, the film got shelved due to a fallout between Salman Khan and Sanjay and hence, he went forward with another important project, which is Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia. Now, the latest report suggests that Bhansali is keen to restart Inshallah but this time with a fresh pair, Hrithik Roshan and Alia Bhatt. Reportedly, the plot of the film is a love story between a young girl and a much older guy, hence, the director wants Hrithik and Alia on board.
Furthermore, it is also mentioned that SLB wanted Hrithik and Deepika Padukone together for Inshallah but considering their film schedule, he doesn’t want his film to suffer. A source told BollywoodBubble, “SLB wants to make Inshallah now. On one hand, he’s planning Heera Mandi as a big web series now and on the other, he wants to mount a film like Inshallah before Baiju Bawra because it’s more modern and has a contemporary take on love. In fact, it’s a story of mature romance brewing between a young girl and a much older guy. That’s why Salman and Alia fit the part. Then, he planned to make it with Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone. But they are doing two back to back films and he doesn’t want his film to suffer.”
The source further states, “He has spoken to Hrithik to replace Salman. Hrithik has liked the idea but knowing him, he will take his own time to sign on the dotted line. On the other hand, SLB is extremely pleased with Alia’s professionalism and given that Alia stood by him through the difficult times, he now wants Hrithik and Alia opposite each other for the first time ever.”
