Though Sanjay Leela Bhansali has not made any official annoucnements yet, but reports of him making a 'Saudagar' like film with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh in lead roles have been gaining buzz for quite some time.
The fact that the audience would get to see another magnum opus by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and two of the biggest stars of the country, would easily make it the most anticipated film of the year.
As per a report in Telly Chakkar, Bhansali wanted to cast his muse, Deepika Padukone in the film. Since Bhansali and Padukone's pair always works wonders at the box-office, Bhansali had made up his mind of pairing Deepika alongside Salman Khan.
However, as per the same report, Salman Khan was not too keen on working with Deepika Padukone. Owing to Deepika Padukone's differences with Katrina Kaif and the fact that he was keen on pairing up opposite her in several projects where she backed out, Salman wants his 'Sultan' co-star – Anushka Sharma to play the part.
Reports suggest that Salman has strongly suggested and recommended Anushka Sharma's name for the film and Bhansali is still under consideration. However, no official confirmation has come from Anushka Sharma or Bhansali yet.
Anushka's film with Salman Khan – Sultan – had received thunderous applause at the box-office and her first film with Shah Rukh Khan – Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi had also received good reviews from the audience.
There is a lot riding on Anushka's upcoming film with Katrina Kaif and SRK, 'Zero' which has been directed by Anand L Rai. If Anushka indeed bags the part, it would be interesting to see the diva paired opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in Bhansali's blockbuster project. Don't you think?
