A love story, it will be Alia Bhatt's first film with the ace director. However, the onscreen pairing has been criticised for their palpable age gap. Speaking about the criticism against the pairing, Alia, in a recent interview, stated she was unaware of any such negative press and was only greeted with excitement for the project.

"Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt come together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Inshallah. We at Bhansali Productions are happy to confirm that the film hits theatres on the Eid of 2020," Prerna Singh, CEO of BPPL said in a statement.

Earlier, it was announced Rohit Shetty-Akshay Kumar's high octane cop drama Sooryavanshi has also booked the same date

Salman's other upcoming projects including Dabangg 3, directed by Prabhu Deva, while Alia will be seen opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra.
