When ‘Inshallah’ was announced, it became known that the story was of an older man and younger woman and Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt were cast. However, with Khan opting out of the film and then Sanjay Leela Bhansali moving on to other projects, it may have seemed like the film was definitely on the back-burner. Recent reports have suggested the filmmaker is looking to revive the project with Hrithik Roshan as male lead.
“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,” said a source, as quoted by News18.
The source went on to state that the plan is to start work on the film next year. This would be the first time Roshan and Bhatt would be starring in a film together and it would most definitely be interesting to see them sharing the screen.
