Till now, there was much speculation surrounding Alia's film with Sanjay as their earlier collaboration Inshallah, with Salman Khan, was shelved. Various reasons for the same were floating around in media reports but the filmmaker's side confirmed the news saying Inshallah was indeed scrapped as the deadline of Eid 2020 release could not have been met.
