Sanjay Leela Bhansali was all set to make his ambitious project, Inshallah, with Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt. The film was ready to go on floors but things went haywire. For best reasons known to him, Salman opted out of the film, which was due to release on Eid, 2020. Needless to add, fans were disappointed by this development. Although the Dabangg star quit Inshallah, Alia Bhatt was very much a part of this project. Unfortunately, the film is shelved for the time being. After the Inshallah fiasco, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was apparently quick to offer another movie to Alia Bhatt. The actress is reportedly playing a lead role in the film.

The latest development about their second project may come as a major disappointment to many. No, the film hasn’t been shelved nor has Alia opted out of it. The thing is Sanjay Leela Bhansali was ready to begin the shoot soon and had even apparently approached Ranveer Singh for an important cameo in the movie. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the Befikre star turned down this offer by the filmmaker. This refusal from Ranveer’s end has also reportedly left his Gully Boy co-star Alia Bhatt quite miffed. The truth, however, lies between the filmmaker and these actors.

This piece of information comes as a shocker as Ranveer has collaborated with Bhansali in the past for three films. Right from Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani to Padmaavat, the director-actor duo gave the best cinematic experience to the audiences. Right now, all we can do is wait for clarification from either of the three parties.

On the professional front, Ranveer Singh will be seen in Kabir Khan’s’83. He plays Kapil Dev in the film based on the Indian Cricket Team’s 1983 World Cup Win. The film is scheduled to release on April 10, 2020.
