It has been confirmed that Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt will star in director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2020 movie, Inshallah.

It is expected to be released by summer, and Khan confirmed the news on his Twitter, writing, “It’s been 20 years but I am glad Sanjay and I are finally back in his next film, Inshallah. Looking forward to work with Alia and Inshallah we will all be blessed on this journey.”

It had previously been speculated that Shah Rukh Khan would have a role in the film, but Bollywood news and reviews site, KRK Box Office, announced on Twitter: “Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has signed Salman khan and Alia Bhatt for his film #Inshallah which will release on #Eid2020! And SRK is not in the film.”

It seems that Bhatt, 26, is delighted about the casting, having tweeted, “I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous and hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait.”

She added: “Dream with your eyes wide open they say & I did. Sanjay Sir and Salman Khan are magical together & I can't wait to join them on this beautiful journey called Inshallah.”

Bhatt was spotted leaving Bhansali's Mumbai office on March 18, ahead of the announcement.

It has been speculated that Khan's production company Salman Khan Films will be producing the movie. The actor tagged his production house in the project's official Twitter announcement.
