Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial venture Inshallah was the most-talked-about film. Fans were eagerly waiting for the film to release as it marked the reunion of Salman Khan and Sanjay after the blockbuster Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. In fact, it was said that SLB wanted to make this film keeping Salman and Alia Bhatt in mind. However, much to everyone’s dismay, Inshallah was shelved due to unknown reasons. Now, after a very long time, Inshallah is once again buzzing in the media.
According to a report in Firstpost, the reason behind shelving Inshallah was the alleged interference of Salman. Reportedly, Salman gave some ideas to Bhansali for the film. The Dabangg actor wanted to include a special song which will be danced by Sushmita Sen and a small appearance of Daisy Shah as he wants to help her career post the debacle of Jai Ho. However, none of the ideas fitted in SLB’s plan. Moreover, Salman even wanted to shift this film as he wanted Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai for the Eid release.
Due to these reasons, it is reported that Salman Khan’s ideas didn’t work with the Bajirao Mastani filmmaker and hence, it didn’t work out accordingly and Inshallah got shelved. As his plans didn’t work out with the Bhaijaan, Bhansali went on to become Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia.

Earlier, when talking about the film being shelved, Salman told Mumbai Mirror in an interview, “Sanjay was a friend even before we started working on Khamoshi. He had come to meet me through Manisha Koirala. After that, we collaborated on Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. When he came to me with this film, I liked it and we decided to work together again. One thing I can say is that Sanjay won’t do gaddaari with his film. I want him to make the film he wants to make. Nothing changes between us as friends and I’m sure nothing has changed in Sanjay’s heart for me. I’m extremely close to his mother (Leela) and sister (Bela). I wish him all the best. He and I will still work in future on a film, Inshallah.”
