Salman Khan and Sanjay Bhansali to work on a love story

Spread the love

It’s been almost two decades to the magical and super hit love story Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam yet the fans can’t have enough of the film. Many still count it as their favourite. The movie also is touted as one of the best romantic films by Salman Khan. And though there have been many requests by fans, and speculations by critics, that the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the actor were working again, they never came back together with a movie which had Salman in the lead. 

Now if reports are to be believed, the two are coming together for a romantic film. A report by Mumbai Mirror says it is a love story. Bhansali plans to present a different side to the actor, breaking free from his action image. “Both of them have been looking to team up on a film for a while now. Everything has finally fallen into place,” informs the source. 

The basic script is locked and Bhansali is currently working on the screenplay. The subject is close to Sanjay’s heart and belongs in a space which has not been explored till date. “He had discussed the idea with Salman before the release of his last directorial, Padmaavat. Salman is equally excited to collaborate with him,” the tabloid reported.

Buzz is, it’s a period film but the source categorically denies it, reiterating that it is a love story. “Sanjay has been working on three scripts simultaneously and was in talks with several big actors. He has finally decided to go ahead with this one which will be spearheaded by Salman,” it said.

The film would be jointly produced by Bhansali and Salman. Though the exact dates are yet to be worked out, it should roll around September, right after Salman finishes shooting for Dabangg 3. “The other members of the cast will be signed soon. The female lead will be an A-lister and they are looking at a 2020 release,” shares the source, adding that Bhansali will score the music himself. The filmmaker’s last stint as a music director for Padmaavat had bagged him eight awards including Best Composer and Best Album at the recent Mirchi Music Awards.

Confirming the news, Prerna Singh, CEO of Bhansali Productions, said, “Yes, Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are reuniting after 19 years for a love story. Their collaboration is the best thing that can happen in terms of story-telling.”

Salman had worked in Saawariya but it was a cameo role. Post that, there were reports of rifts between the two when he criticised Guzaarish and made fun of the film on his reality show. But now it seems all is well between the director and his actor.
