Alia Bhatt to romance 27 yrs senior Salman Khan in ‘Inshallah’, draws flak

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been roped in Alia Bhatt opposite Salman Khan in his upcoming project titled, ‘Inshallah’ and the ‘Raazi’ actress has drawn innumerable criticism for romancing 27 years old senior actor.

Alia is completely unfazed by the criticism. In an interview with an entertainment website, she said, "I didn't get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn't there be speculation? There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don't think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered."

"I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision," she added.

Alia is extremely excited about being a part of ‘Inshallah’ and said that it has "been a long wait". "I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait," she wrote.

"Dream with your eyes wide open, they say, and I did. Sanjay sir and Salman Khan are magical together and I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called Inshallah," the Raazi actress wrote in another tweet.

‘Inshallah’ is scheduled to hit theatres on Eid 2020.
