Salman was quizzed about the same at the launch of his popular television show Bigg Boss 12 and the actor looked surprised. He said, “Yes, I am doing Sanjay’s film.”
He also jokingly added, “I don’t know much about it. Have only heard a one-liner about it. But Sanjay is not answering my calls. Please ask him to speak to me.”
Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s project is reportedly titled Inshallah. According to a Times of India report, Bhansali might work on the script as long as nine months before work on the film begins. The makers may release the film for Eid 2020.
Salman also collaborated with Bhansali on Saawariya, which marked the debut of Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor. Inshallah will be an exciting and much expected collaboration from Bollywood.
