Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer Inshallah shelved
Salman has explained to Mirror why the film was shelved, as confirmed by a statement from Bhansali Productions on Monday. The publication quotes the actor as saying, “Sanjay was a friend even before we started working on Khamoshi. He had come to meet me through Manisha Koirala. After that, we collaborated on Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. When he came to me with this film, I liked it, and we decided to work together again. One thing I can say is that Sanjay won’t do gaddaari (betrayal) with his film. I want him to make the film he wants to make. Nothing changes between us as friends, and I’m sure nothing has changed in Sanjay’s heart for me. I’m extremely close to his mother (Leela) and sister (Bela). I wish him all the best. He and I will still work in future on a film, Inshallah.”
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, a source informed them that the decision was taken by Salman and Sanjay mutually.
Well, this will surely be a sad news for all the fans who were eagerly awaiting the project.
