Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali were all set to unite for their fourth film together. Having made Khamoshi: The Musical, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Saawariya together, this was the one reunion everyone was looking forward to. After Khan took potshots at Bhansali’s Guzaarish at the fourth season of Bigg Boss, things were never the same between the once-good-friends. However, they forgot the past and decided to move on and make another film together.
In fact, we reported that SLB had even registered the title ‘Inshallah’. However, Salman has apparently opted out of the film. Yes, you read that right! A source says, “Salman and SLB haven’t been able to agree on the way the concept was shaping. Bhansali doesn’t want to compromise on the content of the film and Salman who is aware of the audience’s pulse knows how to elevate the film’s grandeur and positioning.”
The source adds, “Now, since this has not worked out, Bhansali has gone back to his previous plan – he is now busy finishing the script of the biopic on Gangubai Kothewali, which has now been called ‘Heera Mandi’ and will mostly star actress Priyanka Chopra playing the lead role.”
Well, this is indeed heartbreaking!
