Ever since Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced their film ‘Inshallah’, everyone was eagerly looking forward to it. After all, it has been more than a decade that we saw these to collaborate. However recently it was announced that this highly anticipated film has been shelved. And that came as a huge surprise for all of us.

Soon there were speculations surrounding the reason why the film was called off just a few days before it was supposed to go on the floors. While some reports suggested that Salman and Sanjay had creative differences, others said that it was due to Salman recommending Daisy Shah and Waluscha De Sousa for the film.


Now reacting on these reports, Waluscha De Sousa told Times of India, “Let me get this right. No one can recommend anyone for a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. You have to earn it! You get cast for a Bhansali film, you don’t need to be pushed for it by anyone. So these reports of Salman suggesting my name to Sanjay are utter rubbish!”

However, Waluscha did confirm that she was indeed a part of ‘Inshallah’. Talking about how she came on board for this Bhansali film, the actress revealed, “It is flattering and embarrassing at the same time to suggest that ‘Inshallah’ didn’t happen because of me. I met Sanjay through Ashley (Rebello) who is also Salman’s stylist and designer. Also, Sanjay and I connected because we have a common connect – Goa! He complimented my complexion and said how I was right for the part.”

She went on to reveal that she was supposed to play a Muslim woman in the film. ‘Inshallah’ was a dream project for me simply because who wouldn’t want to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali,” Waluscha added.
