Throughout the last two decades, Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have had a love-hate relationship. The pair were supposed to reconnect after 21 years on Inshallah, but the film was shelved only days before it was set to go into production. Since then, there have been rumours that something is wrong in the paradise of the two icons.
However, the social media was caught aback when Salman wrote on his social media about Khamoshi and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam to commemorate the film’s release anniversary. Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be a part of a docu-series about Salman Khan titled Beyond The Star, according to reports. It’s produced by SKF with Wiz Films and Applause Entertainment. “The docu-series gives a glimpse into the life of Salman Khan, beyond the superstar that he is and the producers are keen to interact with all key stakeholders of Salman’s career,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
The source added, “They zeroed in on a list and started approaching the directors, producers, actors with some receiving a request from Salman himself. Bhansali was one of those and the filmmaker immediately agreed to be a part of this docu-series. He has already shot for his portions and shared his personal stories of friendship and affection with Salman.”
Salman and SLB are two passionate people who have had professional differences in the past, yet their personal friendship remains as strong as it was before. “They are not planning to collaborate on a feature film anytime soon, but they keep interacting on and off over the call-in times of need. There is no bad blood despite Inshallah being abruptly put on hold,” the source shared.
