‘Inshallah’ has been in the news since a couple of days. One of the stories suggests that Salman Khan wanted to work with Daisy Shah and Waluscha De Sousa over Alia Bhatt. Alia had been confirmed as the lead for the project. Salman recommended either of the two for the lead role, but Sanjay Leela Bhansali refused to budge.

A source close to the project confirmed that Alia Bhatt had been the sole female lead in the film right from the beginning. The source said, “Alia was always the first choice. Salman didn’t push for anyone. If you know Sanjay Leela Bhansali then you will also know that he doesn’t listen to anyone or take to casting advice. He goes with who he thinks is right for the role. The fact that this character was already written with a certain flavour in mind, there was no chance that the names doing the rounds would make it to the film.”

The rumours of Salman Khan choosing Waluscha De Sousa and Daisy Shah stems from the fact that the ‘Dabangg’ star always casts actresses who are close to him in real life in his films.

Salman and SLB have earlier worked in movies like ‘Khamoshi’, ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Saawariya’. They share a good camaraderie with each other.

On the work front, Salman is busy with his upcoming release ‘Dabangg 3’.
