Salman Khan announces Inshallah with Alia Bhatt is delayed
Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer Inshallah has pushed its release date from Eid 2020 to a later, yet unspecified time. Salman tweeted the news from his handle late evening on Sunday and also claimed that while Inshallah will not hit the screens during Eid next year, he will make sure that another film of his does.
Salman took to his Twitter account to announce that the release of Inshallah has been pushed. “But I will still see you all on Eid, 2020. Insha-Allah!” he reassured his fans. However, he did not reveal any details about which film of his will come out on Eid.
Inshallah will be Salman and Sanjay’s first collaboration after two decades. Their last film together was the 1999 hit Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (not counting the actor’s cameo in Saawariya).
The news of Inshallah’s delay came after lead actress Alia was reportedly spotted at director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office on Sunday.
Inshallah has been in news since the time the lead actors announced the news of their maiden collaboration on social media earlier this year. Moreover, filmmaker Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, was preponed after Salman announced that Inshallah will release on Eid 2020.
According to reports, Salman Khan will play a 40-something US-based businessman in Inshallah. Meanwhile, Alia will play an aspiring actor in her mid-20s who hails from an Indian city located on the banks of river Ganga.
The film will be shot in parts of north India and the US, and Sanjay has already finished a recce with his team.Sanjay and crew also visited popular cities like Varanasi, Rishikesh and Haridwar for research purposes.
