Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Priyanka Chopra are really keen  to  collaborate once  again after  Bajirao Mastani. But somehow their stars are non-aligned. Bhansali was keen to cast Priyanka as a  radical poet Amrita Pritam  in  the proposed film on the tumultuous  love  affair between poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam. But then Abhishek Bachchan doesn’t work with Priyanka. Eventually the project didn’t happen. We now have it from very reliable  sources that Bhansali wanted Priyanka Chopra to do a special song-and-dance number  in  Inshaallah.

“But Salman put his  foot down. He said he wanted Daisy Shah for the number. This  was unacceptable to Bhansali,” says the source  in  the know. This according to  the  source was  the main reason why  the Inshaallah  project fell apart. The  superstar-director and  superstar-actor were once best friends. Salman supported  Bhansali when the latter launched  himself as  director  in  Khamoshi: The Musical. They subsequently worked  together in  the effervescent Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam but fell out when Bhansali opted for  Shah Rukh Khan in Devdas.

Inshaallah was  meant to be the great  Bhansali-Salman  reconciliation. Alas, Man  proposes Ego disposes.
