During the promotions of his upcoming film ‘Race 3’, superstar Salman Khan has nearly confirmed that a film with Bhansali is in the pipeline. Salman worked in Bhansali’s first film ‘Khamoshi’ which was a disaster at the box office but they returned with blockbuster ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Speculations of them working together come with every Bhansali film but he only did an extended cameo in ‘Saawariya’ that came out in 2007. At one point of time Salmanw as suppose to play Bajirao in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ but the project never really took off until Ranveer Singh came on board for the same.
Salman has mentioned that a film with Bhansali has been discussed but only the idea as he is yet to receive a full narration. Bhansali has only been making period epics for last few years and might want to shift the gears after blockbuster ‘Padmaavat’. There are not very many directors in the world who have gone through such incredible hell as Bhansali to get his film released but the iron man clearly bounced back from the trauma and is juggling a few ideas to go on floors with. Bhansali is perhaps the only director in the world who makes such mammoth epics and this frequently after the another.
Salman is a very busy man minus his non-film professional commitments as well. He has ‘Race 3’ on release and shooting of ‘Bharat’ has already started with huge schedules to go through with. He will be playing the Robin Hood cop once again in ‘Dabangg 3’, which will be directed by Prabhudeva. He has signed for the sequel to his 2014 blockbuster ‘Kick’ with Amy Jackson and might also start shooting for the third part of Tiger franchise (not announced). In the middle of this somehow he will have to find time doing the Bhansali film, which will be exhausting for sure.
