Known to make films with powerful story line always, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is every actor’s dream. While he’s often making headlines for his next – Inshallah which stars Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt in the lead, he’s currently gaining attention for the subject of his next film post that. If the latest reports are anything to go by, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is planning to make a movie on the social cause of colour discrimination. According to rumours, the team is already working on the final draft of the film.
Confirming the same, a source informed a daily, “Bhansali is keen to launch a fresh face with the film to make it more relatable. He is in talks with a few directors, but hasn’t zeroed in on one yet.” The source further added, “The protagonist, an ambitious achiever, is still able to hold her own and victoriously beat all odds. The movie will be a slice of life and will be a subtle take on the beauty industry and how it encourages consumers to believe that lighter skin tone leads to better opportunities in life.”
Speaking of the film’s subject, it’s being talked about globally and holds much relevance. Times have now changed where Bollywood stars are turning down endorsement deals of these fairness products. Hence, SLB’s film may further add to the movement. Other than this, the filmmaker is also working on his project, Tuesdays And Fridays which stars Poonam Dhillon’s son Anmol Thakeria and former Miss India Jhataleka Malhotra.
