Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is currently busy with the success of his recently released film Ganguly Kathiawadi, is currently open about the possibility of working with Salman Khan again. He co-starred with Manisha Koirala in Salman Sanjay’s 1996 film Kamoshi and worked with the director again in 1999 in Dil De Suke Sanam starring Aishwarya Rai and Ajay Devgn. They were all ready to reunite in InshaAllah after 21 years, starring Alia Bhatt. However, the film was put on hold a few days before it was due to start.

Sanjay has now said that it is up to Salman Khan to see if they can work together again. He stressed that he and Salman will continue to be close friends and hope to get a chance to work with the actor.
In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Sanjay said, “Salman is a very dear friend, I wanted to work with him after the Padmavat film. I put my best foot forward to do that. For whatever reason, it did not happen… We all become people; I have changed. “
The filmmaker added that even if they call Salman today, they will talk like before and choose the place they left, so it does not mean that they have stopped liking each other. However, as far as working together is concerned, the ball is now in Salman’s court.
“I have a lot of respect and admiration for the man who made Kamoshi for me, the man who hummed me Hum Dil De Chuke for me and stood on the safari. So he was the most important part of who I am today. I must always respect him for that. There is, and it is God willing, InshaAllah Agar Hona Hai To Do Hoga (If It Happens It Will Happen). “
In another part of the interview, Sanjay recalls that he and Alia were heartbroken when Sanjay dropped Inshallah and lost the opportunity to work together in the film. He then mentioned that Ganguly had happened and that he was impressed with how good Alia was as an actor.
Ganguly Kathiyawadi, starring Ajay Devgan, Vijay Ross, Seema Pahwa and Chandanu Maheswari, was released in theaters last Friday. The autobiographical crime drama is based on the true story of Ganguly Harjeevandas, whose life is documented in S. Hussain Jaiti’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai.
