Yesterday, social media timeline was all about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Inshallah starring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt- from Salman fans to Alia lovers and admirers of the filmmaker, everyone was rejoicing this piece of news. As soon as Salman Khan took to Twitter to announce that one, he will be reuniting with Bhansali after 20 years, and two, Alia Bhatt will be the leading lady of Inshallah, Twitterverse went gaga.

Later, an excited Alia, too took to social media to express a sense of gratitude and excitement on working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan for the first time as she wrote, “Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called “Inshallah” This is not it because in her next tweet, Alia revealed how she was 9 when she first entered SLB's office. Alia wrote, “I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait.”

Although earlier there was buzz that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is considering Deepika Padukone for his film, however, Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that the script of Inshallah demanded youngsters. In an interview to Mid-Day, Sanjay Leela Bhansali informed, “Alia is a talented actor, who I knew I would direct someday. As a director, it's always a pleasure to work with actors of their calibre, but best things happen when the time is right. Today, when the time felt right and the right roles came along, we decided to walk on this new journey.”

Besides getting one of the most talented and sought-after actress’ of the country on board, Inshallah is extra special for the filmmaker since he is reuniting with Salman after 20 years and Bhansali says, “I have a working relationship with Salman, which is for keeps.” Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s last directorial film was Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh and Padmaavat became the biggest hit of his career, minting more than Rs 550 crore worldwide.

So as per haters, all the talented directors who actually gave hits with Alia are stupid!! And now SLB has chosen talentless actress for his project though we know how passionate he is. Wow, Hate can really mess with minds!!! Go ALIA!! pv plz post

They did not give hits with Alia alone,her constars we very good too.Randeep-Highway, Ranveer -Gully boy, Shahrukh-dear Zindagi and Raazi she was a misfit. Looked like his kid sister. Let her act in female oriented movie without any big name that is a sign of a good actor.

No.1 male actor of the country paired with no.1 female actress. The splash is bound to happen big time.

Yes she is talented, but she is not the only one to be, so please find us a new aishwarya, away from nepoLand

geez maybe they r not romantically involved in the film -_- he said youngsters...so there r more..??!

She is talented as long as she is associated with Dharma... she can never look graceful like DP, Aishwarya, Kangana or priyanka.

First of all thanks for the laugh by taking aishwarya's name. Aishwarya's acting js a complete eyesore . And coming to Deepika then she is not as versatile as Alia. Alia's star power and track record is a clear proof who is loved by audience more. Priyanka and kangana's filmography is full of flops.Just wait and watch in coming 3 years Alia will have a phenomenal rise and these actress will look nothing in front of her success.

Hahaha ..kangana and Priyanka are national award winners. That too without any Khan backing or big production company backing them. So I don't even need to wait and watch. This says it all, Alia needs kjo to succeed. Dp,Vidya,Kangana,Priyanka are successful on their own merit.

Am I the only one who feels EXTREMELY uncomfortable with her and salman?
She, quite literally, could be his daughter.

nope your definitely not alone!! it's actually disgusting puck worthy pairing !!! I lost my respect for SLB sir. I hope it becomes a flop.

let me guess...this movie is in association with fox star or dharma production? haha!
