Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan will share screen space for the first time in the next Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, Inshallah. After an official announcement by both Salman and Alia, Twitter is on a roll, speculating the story of the film and even talking about the 30-year age gap between the actors. A fan shared an old picture of the duo and captioned it, “Who would’ve thought they will work together as a lead pair. #Inshallah.”

Another user shared a throwback photo of Salman on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and wrote, “ Sanjay Leela Bhansali made one of the biggest budgeted grand films like #BajiraoMastani & #Padmaavat with actor like RanveerSingh then imagine what will he do with THE SALMAN KHAN. It is guaranteed 2020s biggest movie. You simply can’t question SLB’s potential. #Inshallah.”

Another fan even came up with the hashtag #Salmalia soon after the film’s announcement.

Salman had last worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the 1999 blockbuster Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, also featuring Aishwarya Rai and Ajay Devgn.
