Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt to star in Inshallah.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali recently announced that he will be making film with Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt titled Inshallah. Since then, the film has been the talk of the town. The film, has gone on floors recently, with a song that is currently being shot in one of the Mumbai studios. Now if latest reports are to be believed, the film has raked in a big bounty even before hitting theatres.
As per a report in Pinkvilla, the theatrical rights of Inshallah have been sold for a whopping Rs 190 crores. Elaborating more on the big deal, a source close to the film’s production told the website, "There is someone trying to do foul play and sabotage Salman's movie. But now, SLB has sold the rights to Jayantilal Gada of Pen Cinemas at a huge price. Bhansali is also producing the film, along with Salman Khan Films. He has sold the movie for Rs 165 crore plus additional Rs 25 crore for P&A, which makes it a Rs 190 crore and that's huge."
Meanwhile, Inshallah will bring Salman and Sanjay together after 20 years. Their last outing was Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. While Alia will reportedly play an aspiring actor, Salman will reportedly be seen as a businessman in his 40s. As per reports, Salman’s character will romance a girl 20 years younger to him.
''Salman is a businessman in his mid-40s. The character is reminiscent of his turn in his 1997 romcom Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai. Alia plays a 20-something aspiring actress. All the factors, including age gap, have been taken into consideration. The story will justify the teaming up of two actors, from different generations, on a romantic journey,'' a Mumbai Mirror report had earlier quoted a source as saying.
The film, a love story, is co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions and Salman Khan Films. It is slated to release on Eid next year.
