Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt are big names in Bollywood, and yesterday must have been a big day for the two mega stars when it was announced that Salman and Alia are all set to officially grace the screens as a lead pair in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next film titled 'Inshallah'.
After a gap of 20 years, Salman and Bhansali will be seen working together, their last film together being 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'.
Salman took to Twitter to share the announcement and said that he is looking forward to the journey.
It's been 20 years but I am glad Sanjay and I are finally back in his next film, Inshallah. Looking forward to work with Alia and inshallah we will all be blessed on this journey.#Inshallah #SLB @aliaa08 @bhansali_produc @SKFilmsOfficial— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) March 19, 2019
Alia also confirmed on Twitter that she had been roped in as the female lead in Bhansali's next opposite Salman. She also stated that she is looking forward to work with Salman and Bhansali for this film.
Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called “Inshallah” â¤#Inshallah #SLB @BeingSalmanKhan @bhansali_produc @SKFilmsOfficial @prerna982— Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) March 19, 2019
Soon after, Alia posted another tweet sharing with her followers that she has waited for a long time to live her dream of working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait.— Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) March 19, 2019
However, Twitter couldn't digest the pairing as well as the 30-year age gap between the lead actors. That gave rise to speculations over the plot of the movie and Twitter thinks 'Inshallah' might be a story about a father and daughter's relationship on the basis of the casting.
Pretty soon, an ancient photo of Salman and Alia was dug out to make their point, and netizens haven't been able to shut up ever since.March 19, 2019
Well, what can we say? This really does seem a little odd to be honest.March 19, 2019 March 19, 2019 March 19, 2019 March 20, 2019 March 20, 2019 March 20, 2019
However, Salman Khan's fans are extremely thrilled by the announcement.
Amazing news! @BeingSalmanKhan and #SanjayLeelaBhansali will be teaming up for #inshallah after 20 years with my favourite @aliaa08! I can't wait to see the beautiful sets, cinematography & magic that this team brings to the table! @Bhansali_Prod @SKFilmsOfficial pic.twitter.com/s8yiGdn6rR— Siddhant (@Siddhant_46_46) March 20, 2019 March 20, 2019 March 20, 2019
Trolls are always active online and by no means are we saying that we support them, because acting has nothing to do with age, and if the director has decided to cast Salman and Alia for a film, there must be a solid reason behind it.
