Here is the BIG announcement - Alia Bhatt will be starring opposite Salman Khan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next. The film will be titled Inshallah. Taking to Twitter, Alia confirmed the news saying, "I was 9 when I first walked into Sanjay Leela Bhansali's office, all nervous hoping and praying that I would be in his next film. It's been a long wait." To which Salman replied saying, "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." With Salman and Alia coming together for a Bhansali movie is definitely HUGE!
