Audiences eager to see the Salman Khan-Alia Bhatt jodi together for the first time would just have to wait longer.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s eagerly-awaited opus Inshallah which started shooting on August 21,seems to have run into unexpected hurdles.The shocking announcement of the postponement of its release, which was made by Salman on Twitter on Monday morning, puts a lot of questions in the minds of Salman’s fans.
Inshallah sees the re-conciliation of the Salman-Bhansali combination that created history in 1999’s Hum…Dil De Chuke Sanam. Their coming together again after a long hiatus , with the hugely happening Alia Bhatt thrown in for good measure, spelt big bucks at boxoffice.
Ridiculously inappropriate amounts of money was being irresponsibly thrown around on the Internet.One portal even went as far as to say that Jayantilal Gada of Pen Entertainment Networkhad bought theatrical rights of Inshallah for Rs 190 crores, a claim stoutly denied by all concerned.
And now, with Salman declaring Inshallah delayed , there is a big question mark over Salman’s revised Eid plans.
Is he quietly working on another film that will make it into theatres on time for Eid 2020? Or will this be a rare Eid when there will be no Salman release?
It must be recalled that Salman had personally requested director Rohit Shetty to move away from the Eid 2020 release of Sooryavansham to accommodate a solo Eid release for Salman’sInshallah, much to the displeasure of the Sooryavansham hero Akshay Kumar. Now that Salmanhas moved out of Eid will Rohit Shetty come back to the coveted Eid 2020 slot with Sooryavansham?
