Rumors have been surrounding Anushka Sharma and superstar Salman to appear in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film. However, this is nothing but gossip, as Anushka’s spokesperson has put an end to such gossip, denying any such reports, after releasing a statement. According to the statement, Anushka would be delighted to act in Bhansali’s film, but currently, there is no truth to the fact and only Bollywood gossip. The actress has not signed in any project with Sanjay. Anushka’s spokesperson has requested to refrain from spreading such reports or rumors. According to an article published on http://www.newindianexpress.com, there is no official declaration as to the collaboration with Bhansali’s project. According to rumors, Salman Khan is eager to work in Sanjay’s film and recommended Anushka’s name to play the female protagonist.
No Confirmation from Salman Khan
Though Anushka’s spokesperson has confirmed that there is no such agreement signed, Salman did not confirm anything so far. Sanjay worked with Salman in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in the 1999 blockbuster. Bhansali did not work with Salman for a long time and wanted to cast the Dabangg star after all these years. The duo tried to collaborate on many projects since then but failed due to some reason or the other. Until Salman gives any official statement, should we hope to see them together working in the future? We all hope so. Despite the rumors, there is no official Bollywood news so far to show that Anushka and Salman will be working together.
Salman and Anushka in Sultan
Anushka and Salman starred in the sport-drama ‘Sultan,’ in the year 2016, with Ali Abbas Zafar directing the film. The movie was a success at the box office and minted huge money, appreciated by critics too. It was the first time that Virat Kohli’s wife, Anushka shared screen space with superstar Salman. The duo’s chemistry worked well in the movie, and we all hope that if they star in Bhansali’s film in the future, both will perform well and make their fans happy.
Sanjay also worked with Salman in ‘Saawariya’ in the 2007 film, which did not do well at the box office.
Why Are Expectations High from Bhansali?
Sanjay also delivered the most talked-about and hit ‘Padmaavat’ in 2018. It was a period film starring Deepika Padukone and handsome Ranveer Singh. The film entered into many controversies but was released finally after much outcry. Bhansali’s magnum opus minted Rs. 585 globally and ranked as one of the top 10 highest-earning Bollywood films of all time. So if Anushka and Salman star in Sanjay’s film in the future, fans would expect that it will be a masterpiece and real entertainer. Therefore, expectations will be high because Bhansali’s movies are large-scale with stunning sets and visuals.
Anushka had three major film releases this year including ‘Sanju,’ ‘Pari,’ and ‘Sui Dhaga.’ She will also share the screen in the upcoming film ‘Zero,’ with King Khan Shah Rukh and gorgeous Katrina Kaif. The movie would release on December 21 this year.
So let us hope that Anushka and Salman share screen space under Bhansali.
