Salman Khan wants to romance Katrina Kaif in Sanjay Leela Bhansali film?

The last time Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali collaborated for a film was the 1999 film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. A film that brought Bhansali to the foreground. Since then, there has been no looking back for the filmmaker who is known for his larger-than-life films. Now 20 years later, the hit actor-director duo is reuniting for another love story.

The film is expected to go on floors after Salman wraps up his home production Dabangg 3.

According to a report in a magazine, Sanjay is keen to work with his muse Deepika Padukone in the film. Since Salman and Deepika have never worked together in a film, it would make for an interesting on-screen pairing.

But the same report suggests that Salman wants his close friend Katrina Kaif to be in the film. In fact, when Salman was in talks for Bajirao Mastani (2015), he made Katrina audition for the film.

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra, who walked out of Salman-starrer Bharat owing to personal reasons, recently revealed on Koffee With Karan that she is in talks with Bhansali for his film. But given her current status with Salman after her impromptu exit from Bharat, insiders are of the view that the actress was referring to some other film (a heroine-centric biopic) with Bhansali.

Currently, Salman wrapped up the shooting of Bharat with Katrina. The film which is a remake of a Korean film An Ode To My Father is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Bharat is set to hit the screens on Eid 2019.
