Rumours were abuzz that Salman Khan would sign a mega project with one of the most exceptionally talented director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When Salman was asked about the same, he did accept that they were in talks for a future project but didn’t confirm anything. However, here is a big damn good news for all Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam fans. Yes, the Salman-Sanjay duo is coming back together and none other than Bhansali has confirmed it.
Esteemed filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced the news on social media. He posted a throwback picture of Salman with him dating back to shooting days of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and wrote, “We are back together #Reunion After 10 Years #SalmanKhan @beingsalmankhan.”
Aishwarya and Salman starrer Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was their first collaboration which till date is remembered for several special reasons. However, they duo last worked together ten years back in Saawariya (2007), the film which embarked the Bollywood journey of star kids Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor but was a big time flop.
Since their last alliance, both Sanjay and Salman have grown tremendously. While Salman is now India’s biggest superstar who relishes maximum fan fad than anyone else, Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the other hand has grown impressively with his art and craft of filmmaking, Bajirao Mastani and Ram-Leela are a proof of it.
Bhansali who is presently busy shooting Padmavati, is reportedly planning to shift his focus from historical drama (Bajirao Mastani, Padmavati) to modern time Devdas like story for the Salman starrer project set in greys! This film will also put an end to the Ranveer-Deepika and Sanjay’s trilogy (Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmavati).
Well, we already can’t wait for the film to hit the screens! :p
