According to recent reports, Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali will team up again.
Of late, the rumours suggest that Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali will join hands. The reports say that their next project will be titled Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. However, the new project will not be a sequel to the first film starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
In a report posted on DNA, the director has narrated the script to the superstar. While the filmmaker hasn’t made his decision on any actress, Salman is definitely on board. The report quoted a source as saying, “Sanjay, who is penning the script, has narrated the idea to Salman and he is on board. Though the film isn’t a sequel or a remake, it may be called Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. SLB feels that the movie has all the elements that Hum Dil… had. So, the title feels like a natural fit for part two. However, it will have a different story and new characters. An A-list heroine will be cast opposite Salman, but the makers haven’t approached anyone as yet.”
The film is slated to release in 2020, the project will start after Salman Khan finishes shooting for the third instalment of Dabangg, his cop drama franchise. “Salman starts Dabangg 3 in the last week of March. Once he finishes the third instalment of the cop franchise, he will begin work on this project. The movie is being readied for a 2020 release, the source adds.
Salman Khan worked with Bhansali for the first time in the 1999 epic romance drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. The reunion of the due was also confirmed by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh. He confirmed the news on Twitter and revealed that the film would be a love story.
“Sanjay Leela Bhansali & Salman Khan reunite after 19 years for a love story… The film is set to go on floors soon,” Adarsh tweeted.
More details on the project are awaited.
