Inshallah: Twitter loses the plot over unusual pairing of Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next
Inshallah will mark the first collaboration between Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt, who have an age gap of 27 years.
Actors Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt will share the screen space for the first time in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's romantic drama Inshallah.
The film was in buzz ever since it was announced. Salman will reunite with Bhansali after 20 years. The two worked together in 1999 and delivered the blockbuster Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. While the fans are still speculating about the story of the film and the 30-year age gap between the lead actors, the internet cannot stop talking about the unusual pairing.
A Twitter user also dug up an old picture of Salman Khan along with a young Alia.

Is Salman play Alia's father or uncle? Any other role will be very disturbing to me. https://t.co/p9aEQUcD7l

Okay, so #Salmalia it is.... Had heard this on the day, film was announced last month.... A magnificent cast to be directed by a loved personality, and an upfront mass title, #Inshallah. This is indeed the BIGGEST film of 2020. @BeingSalmanKhan @aliaa08 #SanjayLeelaBhansali

John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
First Take| Trend of targeting celebs for fame shows arm-twisting won't end unless film fraternity comes together
In the coming months and years, we can expect fringe groups to question any and every filmmaker about his intention. If Aamir Khan is making Mahabharat and decides to cast himself as Arjun, he may have to explain why a Muslim should play the iconic Hindu warrior….and so on.
