Of late, there have been rumours suggesting that Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali will team up again. And now recent reports say that their next project will be titled Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. However, the project will not be a sequel to the first film starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
In its report, DNA claims that the director has narrated the script to the actor. While the filmmaker hasn't settled upon any actress, Salman is on board. The report quoted a source as saying, "Sanjay, who is penning the script, has narrated the idea to Salman and he is on board. Though the film isn’t a sequel or a remake, it may be called Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. SLB feels that the movie has all the elements that Hum Dil... had. So, the title feels like a natural fit for part two. However, it will have a different story and new characters. An A-list heroine will be cast opposite Salman, but the makers haven’t approached anyone as yet."
Slated to release in 2020, the project will start after Salman finishes shooting for the third instalment of Dabangg, his cop drama franchise. "Salman starts Dabangg 3 in the last week of March. Once he finishes the third instalment of the cop franchise, he will begin work on this project. The movie is being readied for a 2020 release, the source adds.
Khan worked with Bhansali for the first time in the 1999 epic romance drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. The reunion of the two was also confirmed by film trade analyst Taran Adarsh. He confirmed the news on Twitter and revealed that the film would be a love story.
"Sanjay Leela Bhansali & Salman Khan reunite after 19 years for a love story... The film is set to go on floors soon," Adarsh tweeted on Saturday.
