Salman Khan walks out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Inshallah’


Due to creative differences, Salman Khan walks out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Inshallah’. While walking out of the project, the superstar said he will continue to remain friends with Bhansali.

“Sanjay was a friend even before we started working on Khamoshi. He had come to meet me through Manisha Koirala. After that, we collaborated on Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. When he came to me with this film, I liked it and we decided to work together again. One thing I can say is that Sanjay won’t do gaddaari with his film. I want him to make the film he wants to make. Nothing changes between us as friends and I’m sure nothing has changed in Sanjay’s heart for me. I’m extremely close to his mother (Leela) and sister (Bela). I wish him all the best. He and I will still work in future on a film, Inshallah.”

The film was shelved days ago it was supposed to go on floor. Salman and Alia Bhatt were supposed to act in the movie. A source added, “Salman wanted to change the fabric of the film. While he was happy with the first hour of the story, he had requested Bhansali to rework the rest of the script, especially the climax. Even as the production team set up the first day’s shoot, the two couldn’t agree on the narrative. Bhansali wanted it to be a love story, and Salman could only envision it as a typical Eid potboiler, in which romance is one of the elements. Bhansali respects his actors, and their suggestions are welcome, but not if they aim to alter the narrative. Hence, he took the decision to shelve the film.”

Bhansali will now focus on his next romantic project, ‘Izhaar’ which he has been discussing with Shahrukh Khan for quite sometime. “The film will be mounted only by November and is not eyeing the Eid 2020 release,” the source added.

 ‘Inshallah’ is supposed to go on floor on Wednesday and before that Salman and Sanjay Leela Bhansali decided to meet and they could not come to a solution and at the moment the actor said that he could not go ahead with the project.

However, Salman Khan assured his fans that he will see them on Eid 2020 with ‘Kick 2’.

He tweeted, “Itna mat sochna mere baare mein, Dil mein aata hoon.. aur Eid pe bhi.”
