Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the maverick genius director, has celebrated 25 years in Bollywood and is presently working on his tenth film. He began his career with Khamoshi, starred Salman Khan, and Alia is now in his tenth picture. The director stated that filming the film was difficult due to two lockdowns.
