Film fanatics were elated when the news of Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali coming together for a project made headlines earlier this year. However, things took a sour turn between them and the former soon opted out of the Alia Bhatt-starrer Inshallah. While creative differences between them were cited as the primary issue, it has now been revealed that there is one thing the Dabangg star did which left the ace filmmaker extremely upset and heartbroken. Salman previously tweeted, “The film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali is pushed but I will still see you all on Eid, 2020.” Bhansali was extremely upset because Salman reportedly posted this information without even asking Bhansali or informing him.
"Salman and Sanjay Leela Bhansali had been in talks for various issues for quite some time. On Sunday afternoon, the last discussion was when Salman told Bhansali to complete Inshallah in 130 days and not 180 days as the filmmaker was asking for,” said a source.
It added, "Salman's point was that the film could not be completed in so many days and yet release on Eid 2010 as post-production couldn't be complete. The topic was being discussed for weeks and not just Sunday as Salman has other brand commitments, Big Boss 13, shows, rehearsals, promotions for Dabangg 2 etc." The insider mentioned that while Bhansali was willing to sort out matters with Salman, he ditched the meeting with him when he learnt about the Twitter post. Bhansali felt Salman shouldn't have taken such a big step on his own, especially without consulting him. The source also revealed that despite being perceived as a short-tempered man, Bhansali is very emotional and sensitive and has been hurt by Salman’s alleged behaviour. The source hinted that Bhansali will still go ahead with Inshallah because a lot of money has been invested in the project.
