Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Inshallah became one of the most anticipated films of the year as it featured Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt. People were eagerly waiting to see these two popular stars on the silver screen. The age gap between them became the topic of discussion on the internet. Well, we all agree with the fact that Sanjay knows the art of spelling magic with his work. Thus, movie lovers knew that he indeed had something instore for them. However, Salman has confirmed that the film has been shelved.


A couple of days back, Salman tweeted that the film has been pushed but he will be coming on Eid indicating the release of Kick 2. He tweeted, "The film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali is pushed but I will still see you all on Eid, 2020. Insha-Allah!!"

Speculations were rife that Salman opted out of the project over some creative difference with the director. The actor talked to Mumbai Mirror on the same and said, "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."

A source also told the leading daily that the actor was happy with the first part of the film but requested Bhansali to rework on the climax. The source said, "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."

It is being said that Bhansali is currently focusing on another romantic project, Izhaar.

On a related note, Salman is also filming Dabangg 3.
