Alia Bhatt is thrilled to collaborate with Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Inshallah. The actress who is currently gearing up for the release of Dharma Productions Kalank will be seen opposite Salman Khan for the first time ever in the SLB directorial. After the announcement about Inshallah, some fans were disappointed with Alia and Salman being paired together. When the actress was asked if she has received any criticism about the same, she said, “I didn’t get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn’t there be speculation. There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don’t think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered. I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision.”
Talking about the film in a recent interaction with a daily, Bhatt said she feels blessed to be a part of this journey and working in Inshallah. “Bhansali is a visionary. People are too quick to judge. There is a plan in place and a reason behind the (unusual) casting. I am thrilled to be working with Salman. Even I never thought this combination is possible. It will be an intriguing journey and Salman is genuinely warm and kind. They are a magical duo together and I am blessed to be in it.”
Inshallah is slated for Eid 2020 release.
Meanwhile, Alia’s next release Kalank will be hitting the screens on April 17. Besides her, it has Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Sanjay Dutt in important roles.
