Buzz has it that celebrated Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is known for making grand, visually stunning films, is gearing up to work on his next directorial venture after immensely successful Padmaavat (2018). Titled Inshallah, the movie is said to be a romantic tale of two lovers.

While rumours have been rife that Salman Khan has been roped in to play the male lead in the film, the latest we hear that SLB has now locked Deepika Padukone to play the female part in it. If reports turn out to be true, it will be the first time when Salman and Deepika share the screen space in a movie.

In the last three films of Sanjay Leela Bhansali – Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela (2013), Bajirao Mastani (2015) and Padmaavat – Deepika Padukone has been constant. So, it should not come as a surprise if his next directorial also features the great actress as the female lead.

Moreover, Salman and Deepika have never worked together before. Their fresh pairing will definitely grab more eyeballs for the project which, if translated into footfalls in theatres when the movie releases, will be great for the investors.

We are waiting for an official announcement from Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions.
