After Salman Khan announced that his upcoming film Inshallah has been delayed, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's production house took to Twitter and revealed that the film has been indefinitely shelved. Now latest rumours suggest that Salman has quit the project stating creative differences.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Salman Khan has said that  he wants Bhansali to make the film and the two will continue to be friends. Talking to Mumbai Mirror about the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Inshallah, Salman Khan said, ''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 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.”

On reports of their creative differences, leading to the film being shelved days before it was to go on the floors, a source told Mid-Day, ''Salman wanted to change the fabric of the film. While he was happy with the first hour of the story, he had requested Bhansali to rework the rest of the script, especially the climax. Even as the production team set up the first day’s shoot, the two couldn’t agree on the narrative. Bhansali wanted it to be a love story, and Salman could only envision it as a typical Eid potboiler, in which romance is one of the elements. Bhansali respects his actors, and their suggestions are welcome, but not if they aim to alter the narrative. Hence, he took the decision to shelve the film.''

The source also informed that instead of looking for Salman’s replacement right now, Bhansali may probably shift his focus to his another romantic project, Izhaar, which he has been discussing with Shah Rukh Khan for a while. 

Even though Salman Khan's fans will have to wait to know what will happen to Inshallah but the actor already has an interesting line-up of movies. Salman Khan will be seen in Dabangg 3 soon. He also has Kick 2 and is also said to be in the sequel of Andaz Apna Apna.
