After fascinating the audience with their on-screen romance in the movie, ‘Sultan’ where Salman Khan & Anushka Sharma were able to win a million hearts when they appeared together for the first time in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan in 2016, and after she tied knots to the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli last year, Anushka Sharma had an eventful year when talking about 2018 on the professional vanguard. The actress was seen playing 3 different roles in 3 completely different movies.
She had begun 2018 with her home production movie Pari where she plays the role of a victim of a ritual, which was followed by Sui Dhaaga: Made In India that also starred Varun Dhawan where she played the role of and an embroiderer and a business partner and now she will be seen in the Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif starring movie, Zero where she is playing the role of a women with cerebral palsy.
According to the report by Bollywood Hungama, filmmaker Sanjay has locked a script & is keen on taking Anushka on board. The actress has also shown interest in the project mentioned. Since Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for his larger-than-life movies, a collaboration between him & Anushka is surely going to be an exciting one. Earlier this year, it was confirmed by Salman Khan that he’ll be doing a film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Reportedly, this time the movie isn’t going to be a period drama one but a family drama. Although there hasn’t been any confirmation from Bhansali nor from Salman on the status of the project, the buzz is that Salman has suggested Anushka’s name for the movie.
Earlier in 2018, Salman had confirmed that he was going to team up with Sanjay nineteen years after the release of the superhit movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma were seen sharing the screen space for Sultan & apparently they share a great work rapport together. So, if Anushka Sharma gives a nod to Bhansali’s project, it’s going to be a great reunion of the Sultan stars on the big screen.
While Anushka is yet to sign her next project, it seems like the inclination might be towards Bhansali’s film. Salman Khan, as of now, is caught up with Ali Abbas Zafar’s movie, ‘Bharat’ which casts Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani & Nora Fatehi alongside him which will be ready to hit theaters on Eidul Fitr in 2019.
It seems like the ace filmmaker, Bhansali has finalized a script which demands Anushka Sharma to be a part of. Since Sultan, the duo of Salman and Anushka enjoys a huge fan following & the viewers desire to see the two work together again. They had played the role of wrestlers in the movie which made ‘Sultan’ one of the biggest blockbusters of 2016.
At the launch of the popular reality show, Bigg Boss 12, Khan was quizzed about working with Bhansali and he confirmed it saying:
Yes, I am doing Sanjay’s film.
He also jokingly added
I don’t know much about it. Have only heard a one-liner about it. But Sanjay is not answering my calls. Please ask him to speak to me.
The movie is said to go on floor in mid-2019 is probably going to release during Eid in 2020.
