Has Alia Bhatt replaced Deepika Padukone as a 'Bhansali Heroine'?

New reports suggest that filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has not given up on his dream project- Inshallah. Earlier, Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt were to star in this film. However, reports came in that Bhansali had shelved his dream project. Rumours had it that this happened as he didn't wish to replace Alia Bhatt as the lead female protagonist.

Now it seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has found a new hope about Inshallah. He might pair Alia Bhatt with a different male lead. This might be Alia's second film with Bhansali as she is already working with him on 'Gangubai Kathiawadi'.

But why is SLB so keen on working with Alia Bhatt? He was always seen praising Deepika Padukone for her beauty and poise. He gave her the 3 most important films of her life. He could have easily asked her to do his dream project. So, why did he take such a risk to retain Alia Bhatt for Inshallah, which made him almost shelve the film?

We know SLB has his favourite actresses- from Madhuri Dixit Nene to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Deepika Padukone. Is Alia Bhatt the new addition to this list?
