We all were waiting for the day when Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali would collaborate for their fourth film together. But it seems the actor has already signed on the dotted lines without announcing the project. Even Bhansali didn’t really want to make too much noise about bringing Salman on board for his film after 11 years. And if reports are to be believed, the film is all set to go on floors next year in February.
All the technicians working on the film have been asked to keep themselves free from that month of 2019 for the pre-production. Given the scale of SLB’s films, we can expect this is going to be as grand and opulent as Devdas, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. The filmmaker started his career with Salman in 1996 with Khamoshi: The Musical and did two more films with him- Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Saawariya. However, Bhansali soured his friendship with Salman for reasons best known to them. But they both have let bygones be bygones and are working on their fourth film.
And in case you didn’t know, SLB wanted Salman and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as his Bajirao and Mastani, but thanks to the former lovers’ tumultuous relationship, the casting never happened.
