Sanjay Leela Bhansali is currently enjoying the success of Gangubai Kathiawadi, his most recent film. Alia Bhatt stars in the film, which is his debut cooperation with the young actress. They had previously revealed that they would be working together on the film Inshallah, which also stars Salman Khan. The film was subsequently cancelled due to a creative conflict between Bhansali and Khan, according to reports.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali was seen in a recent interview fielding queries from his admirers. After Inshallah was cancelled, a fan inquired about the possibilities of Salman and Sanjay collaborating on a film in the future. In response, Bhansali stated, “Salman is one of my closest friends. After Padmaavat, I was eager to collaborate with him. To make it happen, I put my best foot forward. It didn’t work out for whatever reason; we all change as humans. So he’s changed, and I’ve changed in his mind. Of course, if I pick up the phone and call him, he will speak to me the same way he spoke to me before, and he will speak to me the same way he spoke to me before. So it’s not like we’re strangers, or that we don’t get along, or that we don’t talk to each other.”
“I have the highest respect and admiration for the individual who performed Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and stood by me during Sawariyaa. He has shaped who I am today, and I will always admire and respect him for it. It’s up to him to determine whether or not he wants to collaborate with me” added he.
