Salman Khan confirms exiting Inshallah

Amid much speculations, Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt shed some light on the future of Inshallah at IIFA 2019.

Speaking at the green carpet, Khan said, “Inshallah is not being made with me right now, I am working on something else.” Inshallah was planned for a release on Eid 2020.

However, due to creative differences between Bhansali and Khan, the film was shelved. Immediately after this was revealed, Salman Khan assured his fans that they would still get to see him on the big screen on Eid.

“Currently, Inshallah is not being made. Inshallah will be made but at least not with me,” said the 53-year-old  top actor. “A film will definitely come on Eid. First, it (Dabangg 3) will come on December 20, then a film will come on Eid also,” he said.

Earlier in August, speculation was rife that the National Award-winning filmmaker had shelved the much-awaited project due to creative differences with Salman Khan. Follow-up reports stated that Sanjay Leela Bhansali may reportedly make the film after all but without the Dabangg actor.

Alia Bhatt has assured fans that even though Inshallah might have been shelved at the last moment, she’ll work with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon. Bhansali, Alia and Salman Khan were supposed to start work on Inshallah last month, but Salman backed out days before filming was supposed to begin, reportedly due to creative differences with Bhansali.

She said, “I was very excited to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, of course very excited to work with Salman as well. I believe that sometimes things just happen and it’s not in your control. That way there’s a saying that if you want to make God laugh then tell him about your plans because plans never really go as per plan. But I can give it you in writing that I am going to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon.”
