Sanjay Leela Bhansali made his debut as a director with Salman Khan and Manisha Koirala starrer ‘Khamoshi: The Musical’. The film released in 1996 and since then Bhansali has directed only nine films. Well given the kind of dedication and hard work he puts in each of his films, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he has made only 9 films in the last two decades.

Last year the filmmaker experienced a varied kind of emotions thanks to the controversies surrounding his film ‘Padmaavat’ and later the praise showered upon it post its release. Bhansali is now all set to make his tenth film and naturally he wanted it to be super special. Yesterday it was announced that Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan will be starring in the filmmaker’s next ‘Inshallah’ and it was a pleasant surprise for everyone.

Talking about his special project ‘Inshallah’ and why it is different from the rest of his films, Bhansali told Mumbai Mirror, “Its a younger film, the kind I have wanted to make for a long time after all the dark, intense, over dramatic ones. Life is not only about dark nights, but its also about sunshiny mornings. It’s a new chapter for me as a filmmaker.”

When asked about reuniting with Salman after two decades, the filmmaker said, “I know this is the right film for us to come together. I have been working on it for the last year-and-a-half, starting three months before ‘Padmaavat’ released, to take my mind off things that were happening at that time. I went to Salman when I felt it was ready. It’s my 10th film and I want it to be my best.”

Well, we are pretty sure that ‘Inshallah’ will indeed become one of his best films.
