Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone may be cast together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next mega project Inshallah. And if reports are anything to go by, SLB may have firmed up his choice for lead roles as well.
According to reports, Salman and Deepika are likely to be paired opposite each other in Inshallah. Both actors have worked with SLB in the past. While Salman has done three films under SLB banner namely Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and Saawariya, Deepika has been the leading lady for Bhansali in three of his biggest hits in the recent past.
Deepika was the leading lady of Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. Some reports had even suggested that Bhansali was so fond of Salman that he wanted to first cast Salman as Bajirao and Alauddin Khilji.
Salman is currently shooting for Bharat. Taking to Instagram, Salman wrote that he had arrived in Malta to start the shooting for Bharat, which has been mired in controversies due to Priyanka Chopra’s abrupt walkout from the film. Salman wrote on Instagram, “Starting the shooting schedule of #Bharat in Malta, lovely country .”
In Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Salman was paired against Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who he was reportedly dating during the film.
As for Deepika, she is currently preparing for her reported wedding with Ranveer Singh. The wedding is likely to take place in November this year.
Entertainment website Spotboye reported that Bhansali had registered Inshallah last week and this could be the tentative title of his next film.
