He further went on to talk about how he bagged the film, and revealed, “I had met my co-star Sharmin back in 2011 and since then we have been best friends. She was working as a costume assistant on Sanjay sir’s Bajirao Mastani. One day Ranveer sir (Singh, leading man of the film) wasn’t available, so when she asked me, I tried out his costumes for the team. That’s when I met Sanjay sir for the first time. At the time he had no idea who my father was, yet told me that he wanted to launch me”.
Meanwhile, Bhansali is currently working on his next directorial – Inshallah which stars Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt. He has already started working on the pre-production work of the film. Inshallah is a contemporary romance which will be extensively shot in abroad. The film is set for release on Eid next year.
