There were speculations that Salman Khan wanted Waluscha De Sousa and Daisy Shah over Alia Bhatt in Inshallah
Salman Khan recently announced that his film, Inshallah, with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has been postponed. This announcement was followed by multiple theories and rumours about Salman and SLB’s fallout.
It was reported that the Dabangg actor wanted to work with Nach Baliye 9 host Waluscha De Sousa and Daisy Shah in Inshallah and had recommended SLB to rope in either of the two actresses however the filmmaker refused to do so. Amidst all of this, a source close to the project has confirmed that Alia Bhatt has been the female lead of Inshallah ever since it was announced.
“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,” a source revealed.
Rumours of Waluscha and Daisy being considered for Inshallah started doing rounds because of Salman Khan’s pattern of casting actresses who are close to him in real life in his productions
In an interview with an entertainment portal, Salman made it clear that nothing will change between him and SLB as friends. “One thing I can say it 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 and sister. I wish him all the best. He and I will work in the future on a film, Inshallah”.
On the work front, Salman is currently busy with ‘Dabangg 3’ while Alia has films like Brahmastra, Takht, Sadak 2 and RRR in her kitty.
