According to a News18 report, a source stated, “Bhansali is currently working on Heera Mandi, a web series which has been in the making for some time now. Directed by Vibhu Puri, it is going to go on floors soon. On the other hand, the filmmaker is also working on Inshallah since he has finished Gangubai Kathiawadi and can focus on a new project.”
“Since it is a story of mature romance between a young girl and a much older guy, he feels Roshan and Bhatt would make a good pair. The actor has had several meetings with the filmmaker. He has liked the script but has requested for certain modifications. Bhansali is also reworking on the script,” the source added.
If the reports turn out to be true, Inshallah will mark Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s second collaboration after the 2010 release Guzarish.
As per same report, Inshallah will go on floors in the second half of 2022, if everything goes well. The official confirmation from the makers is still awaited.
