Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan collaborating after 17 long years was a dream come true for many of their fans. The news of them working together for a film alongside Alia Bhatt had created a storm on social media. However, when Salman tweeted of not being a part of the project it also broke a million hearts.
Many entertainment websites churned out reasons stating the cause behind Salman’s exit. While some stated it was due to creative differences, others stated the project is on hold due to Salman Khan’s high payment.
Post the 53-year old actor's exit Shah Rukh Khan's name had started floating around as his replacement. However, in the latest update by Mumbai Mirror, we hear that Hrithik Roshan might replace Salman Khan.
As per the report in Mumbai Mirror, Hrithik Roshan had a meeting with Mr Bhansali and going by the buzz, it appears that it well could have been for Inshallah. Though an official announcement is yet to come our way, it would be exciting to watch Alia Bhatt and Hrithik Roshan paired opposite each other.
While Alia Bhatt has maintained silence on this issue, she had earlier stated that she jumped for fifteen minutes when she was offered the part. "A massive budget has been invested in the pre-production process of 'Inshallah'. Hence, Bhansali is planning to continue with his magnum opus without Salman Khan. The filmmaker has decided to make a few changes to the script and make the project as planned. Alia will still be a part of the film but another actor will be roped in to replace Salman," said a source close to Bhansali was quoted by The Times of India.
