According to a report in India.com, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has kept one of his most ambitious projects Baiju Bawra on hold which starred Ranveer Singh in the lead. In fact the director is now keen on making Inshallah with Shah Rukh Khan.
A report published in Pinkvilla mentioned a source close to the production confirming that Bhansali has had many rounds of discussions with the Pathaan actor and things look positive. “Inshallah is a step in a new direction for Sanjay Leela Bhansali in today’s time and even he is in the mindset to explore a rather light-hearted romantic comedy, stepping back from the intense period dramas. SLB has met SRK a couple of times over the last few months. It’s a story and character which suits Shah Rukh Khan’s personality and he is in conversations to get him on board,” said the source.
Reports suggest that Bhansali has been silently working on Inshallah and the fans can expect an announcement of the same very soon. What’s even more exciting is that if the reports come true, Bhansali and Khan will reunite after their last film Devdas which released in 2002.
Inshallah was earlier planned as a romantic comedy starring Salman Khan in the lead. A couple across generations fall in love with each other. A man in his forties who falls in love with a woman younger than him after his ailing father decides to pass on his wealth to him only if he falls in love and works on his lifestyle.
