A report in Latestly says that both SRK and SLB have decided to come together after a long time with a film which has a beautiful title.

The film also starred Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit in important roles. It’s been more than 17 years now that this hit actor-director jodi announced any project together. Therefore, if Izhaar is in the works, then their fans have got a new reason to rejoice.
Amid all this, Bollywood grapevine is also abuzz with the rumours of Shah Rukh Khan working on Bhansali’s directorial which is based on the love story of Amrita Pritam and Sahir Ludhianvi. Reportedly, the director has been wanting to collaborate with SRK and Deepika Padukone for the ambitious project. However, nothing has been finalised yet and he has moved on to direct another film with Salman Khan.
Bhansali and Salman will soon start shooting for Inshallah which also features Alia Bhatt. The film is a love story and is slated to hit the screens during Eid next year. However, a possible shift in its release date is expected to happen since Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi is also scheduled to release during Eid 2020.
