Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer Inshallah to be shot in Florida; Sanjay Leela Bhansali goes on a recce in the US


Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who have worked together in films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Khamoshi: The Musical and Saawariya, are all set to reunite after a hiatus of 20 years with Inshallah. The film, a contemporary love story, which goes on the floors by August-end, stars Alia Bhatt as the female lead and is locked for Eid 2020 release. Now in a latest development, we hear that Bhansali and his team are currently on a three-week recce in the US as they are looking to shoot Inshallah at ideal shooting locations in the state of Florida.

“The prime spots on their wish-list are the streets of Orlando and the beaches of Miami," a leading daily quoted a source as saying. Reportedly, Salman’s character, of a 40-something businessman, is based in Orlando, a city in central Florida. "It’s a character that’s young at heart and Salman will sport a stylish look, complete with designer jackets and sunglasses," the source added. Before flying to the US, Bhansali and the team visited Varanasi, Rishikesh and Haridwar. "Alia’s character (of an aspiring actress in her mid-20s) is from a place that is situated near the river Ganga, which is why Bhansali is contemplating on these locations," the report mentioned.

Apparently, Salman's and Alia's real-life age difference between the leads forms the core of the film, which is said to be a humorous tale of love rooted in the Indian culture. SLB has worked on the script for almost two years and is reportedly looking to cast an ensemble in Inshallah, apart from Salman and Alia.

Meanwhile, the film will be shot after Salman wraps up Dabangg 3. Alia, on the other hand, is expected to complete her debut home production, Sadak 2, and major chunk of Ranbir Kapoor starrer Brahmastra, before she dives into Bhansali's world. Well, it would be a delight to see the two actors and SLB team up for the upcoming project.
