After so many speculations around the release date of Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt-starrer Inshallah the official date has been announced and it will be releasing on Eid next year. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, an epic romance drama, is being co-produced by Salman Khan Films and Bhansali Productions Private Limited (BPPL).
Alia announced this by taking to her Instagram and wrote; “Agli Eid - Inshallah,”.
Earlier, Salman and Bhansali have worked together in films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Khamoshi: The Musical. Salman also did a special appearance in Saawariya which was a debut film for Ranbir and Sonam Kapoor.
This will be the first time when Alia will be working with Salman and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Their pairing created controversy when the film was announced as Salman is 53 years old while Alia is just 26 years old.
Talking about the same, Alia said in an interview,
“I didn’t get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn’t there be speculation. There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don’t think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered. I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision.”
There were reports that the two might play siblings in the film but a report revealed that the duo will actually be romancing in the film. Salman apparently plays a 40-year-old businessman and Alia is an aspiring actor in her 20s.
A report quoted a source as saying,
“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.”
The film will be releasing on Eid 2020 and it may face a Box-Office clash with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ starring Akshay Kumar.
