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  doesn’t work with Priyanka. Eventually the project didn’t happen.

We  now  have it  from very reliable  sources  that Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted  Priyanka Chopra to do a special song-and-dance  number  in  Inshallah. “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 Inshallah  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.

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