Sanjay Leela Bhansali is an Indian film director, producer, screenwriter, and music director. He is one of the most successful filmmakers in Indian cinema. His movies Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat have been great success along with many others.
Salman had previously worked with the director 11 years ago for the movie Saawariya after which the two had a fall out and did not do any project together ever since.
According to a source, “Sanjay has delivered some of his biggest career hits with Salman as his main lead. It’s been 11 years since the two last worked together, which is why he wants to team up with Salman yet again. The project is reportedly very special for Sanjay and he feels no one better than Salman would fit the lead role.”
Also, it has been revealed that Salman was the first one to reach out to Bhansali after the latter was attacked while shooting ‘Padmaavat’ in Jaipur. Recently, Salman Khan admitted that Bhansali has been discussing a script with him as well.
