Rumours were rife of late that Anushka Sharma is set to join forces with Salman Khan once again for acclaimed filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next directorial venture. Some media outlets also reported that Sharma came onboard after Khan asked Bhansali to cast her in the film instead of his favourite Deepika Padukone.
However, Anushka Sharma has denied all such reports. Her spokesperson said in a statement that thought the actress would love to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, no collaboration is happening between them at the moment.
“Anushka Sharma would love to collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali but as of now, there is no truth to the speculations claiming Anushka has been signed for his next. We request you to kindly refrain from reporting on the same,” read the statement.
Anushka Sharma and Salman Khan were first seen together in Yash Raj Films’ blockbuster movie Sultan (2016). Fans were really excited when they heard that the duo might come together again for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film. But looks like they will have to wait some more before the two actors do a movie together.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma is busy promoting her upcoming film Zero. Salman Khan, on the other hand, is shooting his next Bharat.
